Poor quality. Cracked by third use.
I bought two of these. One for me and one for a friend. Mine cracked the third time I used it--the first time was with coffee and the latter two times was with water. It was not dropped or handled roughly. My friend checked her mug and her's also has a crack in the same place!
I wasted a lot of money on these mugs. They are very poor quality.

I purchased this item because I thought it was cute with a lid imagine my surprise to find out it came with no lid, I'm a little bit disappointed because that's the reason I wanted this cup. Please bring back the lids.

Please please PLEASE bring back the LID!!!
I bought this mug last year in Ellie Blue and Island Blooms when it was sold with a matching porcelain lid to keep your drink warm. I was very much looking forward to purchasing more in some newer patterns but was very disappointed when I discovered that the new mugs have no lid! This was the best mug I have ever owned - perfect size and gorgeous pattern that has not faded at all even with daily washing for over a year! But please please please BRING BACK THE LID!!

Perfect size for me
This mug is the perfect size for me. I've had mine for about 3 years. It holds about 8 oz, but any more would be too full to walk with. I use this mug with my Keurig every morning. I can just pop it in the microwave if I need to warm my coffee. My mug came with a lid that I don't use. The newer patterns don't seem to include the lid. If you're a tea drinker, the missing lid might be a downer.

I just go one of these in sun valley and I think that it is super cute! I can drink coffee and tea in it. Plus it is dishwasher safe! Amazing product!!!!!

I have this in ribbons with the lid. I love that it keeps my tea super warm and the lid doubles as a coaster. Cute, just the right size and dishwasher safe. Imagine my dismay when I went to purchase in a new pattern and NO lid! First my favorite bag was discontinued, now no lid. Argh! For all the lid lovers out there, the national book retailer we all know has their own line of lidded mugs. I guess I'll get one of those, but they aren't Vera's cute patterns and that makes me sad. Bring back the lid! This would be a five star review if the mug hadn't changed.

I love this mug! It is a classic coffee mug, like I would expect to see in my grandmother's cabinet. It is the same size and shape as mugs in her coffee set that she received as a house warming gift in the 60s. I am collecting the ones with black in the pattern to complement my black dishes. The only thing I would say is, if you want a large mug (since our society is supersize driven) look at the "classic mug" instead. It holds more, is a good "hand warming" size and stays cooler to the touch. This mug is more formal, yet fun. It's perfect for after dinner coffee, when you don't want to drink too much! This mug is all about looks and elegance. I use them when my girl friends come over for parties! Great for a tea party!

No Lid - No purchase
I had a lovely collection of Vera Bradley mugs, with the LID, but I will not be adding any more mugs since they NO LONGER COME WITH LIDS! Why? Why? Why? How I appreciated having my coffee warm throughout my entire meal - Please listen to the comments of your faithful customers and bring back the lid!

Definitely Needs to be Improved
I recently purchased this mug from Barnes & Noble and it did come with the lid which was a deciding factor for me in purchasing this mug. However, I was immediately disappointed with how narrow the cup really is. In addition when you drink tea or coffee in the mug you can not put your hands around the mug because it is so HOT! The large box that the mug comes in leads you to believe that it is a nice size cup, but, it is not. It is actually unusable for hot beverages because if you happen to touch the cup, you will burn yourself. I can not recommend this product to anyone. Its a shame since I like so much of what Vera Bradley has to offer, but, this is definitely not a product I would ever purchase again nor recommend to anyone.
