This one missed the boat....
I have all of the ornaments up to this point and that is the only reason I purchased this one.
Vera doesn't seem to realize that many people buy these ornaments not only for the ornament itself but also for the beautiful fabric boxes. I am SO disappointed that it didn't come with the box. I am also disappointed that it doesn't have a ribbon to which to hang it.
The ornament is pretty but the glitter gives it a cheap feeling...definitely not the values Vera Bradley believes in.

This is a joke, right?
I have every ornament produced. I get so many compliments on my Vera Bradley tree. I was shocked to discover that there was only one ornament this year. I was also confused by the cheap paper box. When I examined the ornament, it was much lighter than previous years (similar to the cheapest ornament you could purchase at a big box store). The artwork was not infused in the glass. It looked like a child's school project. This ornament should have been no more than a few dollars, if that. I am extremely disappointed in Vera Bradley. It makes wonder if I should avoid other products as well. Is this an indication that Vera Bradley has decided that quick profits from cheap products are more important than making lasting products that can be enjoyed for many years?

Such a disappointment
I've always loved the Vera ornaments and have asked for them from my mother-in-law for the last few Christmases. I'm sad to say that this is the first year that I will specifically not be asking for this ornament! I was so disappointed when I saw that it was covered in cheap looking glitter ... not the quality I've come to know from Vera. Hopefully they'll take these reviews to heart and go back to their beautiful, higher quality ornaments for 2014!
