Backpacks–My Back to School Pick

IMG_2182There are some exceptional backpacks in the store right now and you can save 25% on these through August 3rd.  Check out the Lighten Up Large Backpack in Ziggy Zags.  It is lightweight and durable.  The Tech Backpack keeps your computer safe from harm with its padded pocket plus it is easy to carry by hand with its attractive and comfortable woven handle.  The Ultimate Backpack can double as a purse.  It is a bit larger than the regular Vera Bradley Backpack; a tablet or books fit comfortably inside.  Check it out in African Violet, a great new fall style!  And, of course, don’t forget the Campus Backpack, an all-time favorite.  Roomy enough for everything to do with school, it even has a grommet for headphone cords, just the ticket for walking the hill on a cool fall day!  You can be practical and stylish with a Vera Bradley backpack, so come on by and see for yourself!

My Name is Martha

Martha Outisde 2013 3My name is Martha and I stand by the entrance of If Only…a fine store greeting everyone who enters and those who pass on the street or sidewalk.
I’m on the street during the hours the store is open, rain or shine, 90 degrees or 45 below zero.  I’ve become a Fairbanks icon!  In 2006, I received the Visitor Ambassador of the Year Golden Heart Award from the Fairbanks Downtown Association.  I see and hear a lot, and people from all over the world have their photo taken with me.
