Bigger Than You'd Think
Despite the dimensions listed in the product description for this item, I had still imagined something a bit smaller when I ordered it. So, when it came in and I realized it was larger than I was thinking, I was a little disappointed. But, it was the only option Vera had for what I wanted, so I stuck with it.
Ultimately, I have found that I quite like its size, as I can hold gift cards and a few other items, in addition to the coins I had initially purchased it for. In fact, I ended up purchasing a couple more, just because they seem so versatile. I plan to also use them for jewelry when traveling and keeping other small items organized in my purse.

Wallet, Coin Purse, Cosmetic...
This little square can be so much! I think I have one in every bag I carry to organize the little doodads that end up floating around in my purse.

Infinite number of uses!
This item is exactly what it's name says, it is a coin purse. There are no pockets on the inside and is quite simply a little zip pouch. It will fit credit cards, ID, cash, keys, and change so it's great if you don't want to bring your entire wallet with you when you go somewhere, like walking the dog for example or quickly running out to the grocery store. This will easily fit in most jacket pockets so it's convenient to put in your winter jacket when you're out skiing or skating or doing other activities where you don't want to carry a purse. It won't fit most phones so don't count on it to replace a standard wristlet. I've purchased a few of these items and have actually ended up using most of them to store jewelry more than coins. Vera Bradley bangles (2-3 of them) fit nicely into these little pouches and protect them from getting scratched when they are not being worn. They are also great travel cases for jewelry. I also use one for the gym to carry my valuables that I don't feel comfortable leaving in my locker. It will fit in the water bottle holder of most fitness machines and I can carry it with me into yoga class and place it on the mat next to me. I have used this item as a coin purse but have found the Vera Bradley small cosmetic to be more useful to hold change because it has a plastic lining making it easy to wash and disinfect. I keep one in my car with change for drive-thrus, parking metres, and tolls. Definitely a very versatile product. Just a note to online shoppers, the stripe of pattern across the coin purse as seen in the photo is only on one side; the other side just has the pattern, no stripe.

Great for holding all sorts of little things.
I use these coin purses for everything, not just change. I keep hair accessories, mini lotions, medicines, gift cards, you name it, in these handy little bags. They're great for keeping small, easy to lose items from being lost in the abyss of a big purse. Storing things like lotion, hand sanitizer, etc., in these bags makes it easy to change purses-simply move the coin purse from one bag to another. These are so handy, and there are so many great uses for them.

Fantastic- not just for change
I currently own 3 of these coin purses and use them for EVERYTHING. They are perfect for when you don't want to take a whole wallet, they are slim and can be slid into a slim purse, such as the Mini Hipster. I also use them for pads, 2 or three pads can fit in, perfect to take to school or a night out. They also make for a great gift because they aren't as pricey as some of the other VB products. Snappy, chic, and small, you can take this ANYWHERE!

This was given to me as a gift, and I LOVE it!!!!!! It helps keep my wallet from being too heavy, and matches my Hipster perfectly. Also it is the perfect size, and hold a lot more than you may think that it does. When I emptied out my coin purse for the first time I found that I had over $20 in change!! It is perfect, and is very helpful if you don't want to throw your change into your wallet!!!

Really versatile little purse
I initially purchased a coin purse in each of my two fave patterns, to match my handbags. I was hoping the coin purse would be a good solution to keeping my sweetener and drink mixes clean, organized, and no longer all over the bottom of my handbag. Alas, the coin purse was just a tiny bit too short for the drink mixes; i really had to cram them in. The I found the slim case, which was perfect for my drink mixes and sweetener. What to do with the coin purses? I found that my little insulin patch pump fits in it PERFECTLY, with room for several alcohol and adhesive removal pads. The thick quilting protects my pump from bumps and mishaps. Because of Vera, I have started to replace the ugly medical bags and pouches for my diabetic necessities with lovely, well-made bags and pouches. Thanks, Vera!
