Most of you are probably familiar with Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia Miller the founders of Vera Bradley. Barbara's late husband had a company called Baekgaard lmt. that made fine mens gifts and accessories. In January the company was closed and since then lots of their items have ended up at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. You can read more about that here. Some of my Vera friends started talking about what was available, so of course I had to google the closest TJ Maxx and plan a trip.
The closest TJ Maxx is about 20 minutes away, but the good news is that there is a Marshalls across the street. I found this fabulous Pleated Tote in a patent leather pink. And this large Satchel in green! Publish PostThe bags retail for $180 and $175! I got them each for $39.99. I really liked them both, but decided that I couldnt keep them both. So I returned the Pleated Tote. I loved the color and it has a tied dyed print inside, but it was kind of stiff. The Satchel is pretty large, but I think that it will work well for carrying stuff to work. There are a lot of other items available as well like little wristlettes, wallets, coin purses, key fobs, etc.
Oh and it might be hard to tell, but the green one is edged in purple! It is also real leather and feels amazing.
I also picked up a little something at Marshalls, but I will show you that later this week.
So if you like what you see head to your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls! Happy Shopping!
