Today, August 9, is the day Vera Bradley was born back in 1909 (yes, her birthday was 09/09/09!)
It was in 1982, while at a layover in the Atlanta airport after visiting Barbara's parents, Ed and Vera Bradley, that Barbara Bradley-Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller revisited a conversation they once had around the serious shortage of feminine and stylish luggage.
Investing $250, they begin a company the very next day in Barbara's basement, Fort Wayne, Indiana. And they named the company after Barbara's mother, Vera.
Thank you ladies for your astute observation of the deplorable lack of feminine traveling cases and thus creating my favorite obsession, Vera Bradley!
