Nie Nie Day Auction #1! Vera Bradley Designer Handbag - Value $80!

I am thrilled!  I am so excited!  The whole NieNie Day experience has been wonderful - seeing people come together in such a way to help people they have never even met! Wow, it renews your faith doesn't it?  

Because of the generous donation from the GREAT people at Designers Center - I have a new auction to add!  I'm proud to present a Vera Bradley Microfiber Cargo Hobo Handbag, an $80 value!   I absolutely love all my Vera's - they are designed for fashion as well as function and they hold up wonderfully- great quality!  I recently gave a friend of mine a Vera Bowler Bag and she has carried nothing else since!  I have purchased my Vera's from Designers Center for 2 years now since discovering Veras and the people there are great!  (Hi to Jared & Tracy!!)  They always send me new Vera catalogs every season and great coupons to redeem for limited edition Vera treasures!  They even call me when they get a new line in - LOOOOVE that- how is that for customer service?  I highly recommend them!  (P.S. - they carry all kinds of other great designer stuff as well - Pandora Jewelry, Swarovski, Skagen Denmark.)

Now for the Fab Handbag description : The curved top and two outer patch pockets of this good-looking cargo give it a couture look. Zip open the top to find another zippered pocket plus two slip compartments. The comfortable shoulder strap makes it easy to tuck under your arm and go.  

Please follow these guidelines in bidding on the auction.

When can I bid?

As soon as the post appears.

Where do I place my bid?

In the comment section of each item's post. I will leave the first bid, then the next bidder can submit a comment with their bid like, "I bid $25." And with each bidder to follow they just leave a comment with their price.

What amount can I bid?

Please keep all bids to an even $1--no change please. For example: if the bid is $20.00, then the next bid should be $21.00 not $20.50.

How do I know what the highest bid is?

Check the comments. It will be the most recently posted comment.

When does the auction end?


What if I win the bid?

After the close of the auction I will post the winner and their bid.
If you are the winning bidder, use the NieNie button below to make payment, then email me at with your mailing information. I would also ask that you include in your email a copy of your Paypal receipt to verify payment has been made the Nielson account.

How can I pay for the handbag?

Winning bidder will make payment directly to the Nielson paypal fund by following the link on my blog.

Will all of the money go to the fund or just a portion?

All of it. I will be paying the shipping myself.

I am hopeful that together, those of us in the blogger world can raise quite a bit of money to add to the recovery fund. If you wish to donate aside from the auction, please use the NieNie button on my blog to make a donation directly.
