Get your tissues ready because it looks like these patterns are about to start their farewell tour.
A few people have asked how I know this information and the answer is, I don't know for sure, but none of the new styles are being made in these 3 colors. That's usually a good indicator that a color is about to hit the road.
The following styles are not being made in any of the new spring colors, so this leads me to believe they will also be hitting the Vera retirement home. Get ready for the jaw droppers!! (But remember how they punk'd us with the Campus Tote? Maybe sometimes they just can't make up their minds.)
While I am fond of this bag, I was completely taken aback by this retirement. You may remember from my review that this bag is not every day functional. Maybe Vera is going to add a few improvements and re-release this baby in an upcoming season. (Fingers crossed)
With the new number of baby bags in the Vera catalog, it's no surprise they are retiring one.
Leather Trim Items
We knew these were anniversary items, so again, no surpise here. To be honest the leather on these bags doesn't even seem real to me, it feels so plasticky. Any opinions?
Go Round Tote
MY MOUTH FELL OPEN, and stayed there. I have always wanted this bag and somehow always wind up leaving without it. I know several ladies that love this bag, and I always see girls carrying it around campus. I really hope this is a redesign, but hey, look at the bright side, we can grab it on sale!!
A store associate told me that they hardly ever sell these.
Laptop Travel Tote
I was shocked by this one also. I always see people buying this whenever I'm shopping at Vera, and I even saw a lady right before Christmas leave the store with 3. Maybe that new large laptop tote is taking its place.
Mini Laptop Case
I have never seen anyone buy this or carry it. I haven't seen anyone with the large one either, so I'm not sure why they're keeping that one around either.
I was probably shocked the most at these tech items that are not being made in any of the new colors.
iPhone 5 Case
I am so sad about this one because I was so looking forward to getting a Plum Crazy or Jazzy Blooms case.
Snap On Case for iPhone 4/4S
I really do not understand why they aren't making these. They are so popular they sometimes sell out of them.
Snap On Case for iPad
These just came out, maybe they were just a holiday item?
Medium & Small eBook Covers
WHAT?! I love my ebook cover, but I know they've had a lot of complaints that the magnet was just in the wrapper, so perhaps they are adding some type of closure.
I love my clip light, they are awesome and perfect to match with your case. Bummer to see these go.
What possible retirement took you by surprise?
