Retired patterns go back to Spring of 1985 and continue through Fall of 2013. Retired patterns can bring big money on eBay. The luggage sells for the most because many sellers offer luggage in sets. For example, this 7-piece collection of luggage in the retired Java Blue pattern sold for $300.
Garage sales, yard sales, and estate sales are great places to find retired Vera Bradley items because the products may have been inside someone’s home for years and the person doesn’t even realize they are valuable.
Some other notable eBay sales:
Before listing any Vera Bradley, or other designer handbag on eBay, do the research and make sure it is authentic. If you are not 100% sure the item is authentic, do not list it. eBay is vigilant about ending listings for counterfeit handbags, so never put your account in jeopardy if an item cannot be properly authenticated.
There are over 100 retired Vera Bradley patterns so learning to recognize the pattern is key to making money selling the item on eBay. Check the retired colors page on VeraBradley.com for a complete list of retired patterns and names.
