First Vera Bradley
Let me start off with the fact that I HATE carrying a purse. Most purses get so heavy and cluttered and the flimsiness of other purses doesn't help. I bought the zip i.d in Happy Snails and it was so convenient so the very next day I went and bought the Mandy in Happy Snails. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bag. The thick, lush quality of the material is surprisingly light weight! The purse has SIX pockets on the inside and one on the outside. The pockets make for amazing organization, not counting whats in the pockets, I have my zip i.d., my checkbook and an umbrella. THAT'S IT!!!! I can find everything in less than 3 seconds and the outside pocket is perfect to slip my phone in and out of weather I'm in the car or the store or whatever. Perfect purse and I'm hooked!!!

I purchased this bag in "Happy Snails" for my mother who is 84 along with a matching wallet. She can no longer carry heavy leather bags so I thought this would be a fashionable alternative. She loves it! It is light and there are enough pockets that she has a place for everything and every thing is in it's place. I am glad there is a zipper closure for added security and the size is just right. She can carry the bag or she can put it up on her shoulder. All in all this is the perfect bag for a senior who still wants to be in the "fashionable crowd". We are now going back for a 2nd bag in one of the newer colors. We think the quality of Vera bags is absolutely exceptional!

Lovely smaller tote
I purchased the Mandy in Happy Snails for my mom-in-law. She doesn't like large bags but seems to have trouble fitting everything she wants to carry in the purses she buys. The Mandy is perfect for her! The six interior pockets allow her to carry many smaller items without them breaking or getting lost in the shuffle. She can carry everything she wanted and more, if needed, including her Nook and or a couple books. She particularly likes the size of the Mandy--it's not overly large or deep like a tote but still holds a lot. The straps have an ample length and the zipped top ensures her that nothing will fall out. The quality is unbeatable and the pattern is pleasant and cheery.
