  7. Karen said on :

    I bought 2 luggage tags several years ago. They were a black/yellow/white pattern. I would like to get one more. I looked in my local VB store, they did not have that pattern. The reason for this pattern is because I live in Pittsburgh, PA and our sports teams (Steelers, Penguins, Pirates) are those colors!! Is there any way I can find 1 or 2 more luggage tags in this pattern? Thank you!

I hope you are there the next time I visit! Just thought you would like to know! I have been a Vera fan for years!! Thank you for making such a nice product.

    When I travel or just out running errands I like to just carry a wallet or wristlet. But the all in one you have is not big enough so I wish you would make one that is slightly longer more like the Georgia wallet but it zips all the way around for security. Is rfid protected and has room for a lipstick or two . thank you Susan Whitehead mikesusanw@gmail.com
