Grateful Giveaways Mother’s Day Event: Colorado Bag ‘n Baggage Giveaway (#4 out of 12)

by Nicole on April 25, 2011

Colorado Bag’n Baggage is composed of 26 stores nationwide in nine states. Our company is composed of a group of stores: Colorado Baggage, Bag’n Baggage and Houston Trunk Factory. Colorado Bag ‘N Baggage has your favorite designers too such as Vera Bradley, Hobo International, Lodis, Baggallini, Ellington Handbags and more. Colorado Bag ‘N Baggage will make finding that perfect gift for mom really easy this Mother’s Day.

Vera Bradley – Was started in 1982 when friend Patricia R. Miller and Barbara Bradley Baekgaard were traveling together and noticed that there is not a great deal of baggage made specifically for women. It was then the two friends decided to make functional, soft luggage out of rich and colorful fabrics that change seasonally. Vera Bradly has grown to be nationally and internationally recognized without compromising style or quality.

I received the large duffel in Folkloric and the small cosmetic in Boysenberry . You can check them out here at:  The two patterns are very different – Folkloric has links and oranges and browns in it while Boysenberry is a pink and purple and white very bright pattern.  I have a few Vera Bradley cosmetic bags that I enjoy using, the patterns are so cherry and make me smile! The large duffel is the perfect size for a weekend or a few days away.

Also, there is the GoToob , the civilized, squeezable travel tube.  These tubes hold the 2 oz you’re allowed by the TSA to carry on with you.  They are also food safe which is nice if you carry around your own dressing or other liquids.

Next, there is the Good 2 Go Bag. These bags are the most optimal and fashionable solution for keeping everything together. On the run and don’t have time to change from one handbag to the next, Good 2 Go Bags are the solution. All you do is add your stuff to the Good 2 Go Bag and then put inside your favorite handbag of the day.  You can change bags in just minutes when you use a Good2Go Bag!

Lastly, there are B. Dazzle puzzles: A great way to challenge your mind and keep you occupied during a long flight, car trip or on a camping trip. Great for the whole family. Each set comes with 9 pieces to match up in one design. This is a lot harder than I thought but is a super fun brain teaser that will keep your whole family occupied for a long time!

One (1) lucky reader will win an the same Vera Bradley items I received above as well as Go Toobs, Good 2 Go set of a small, medium and large bag set and B. Dazzle puzzle.

Total prize is valued at almost $210…!
