Fort Wayne to Play Host (Again!) to the Fall 2008 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale

I just received word a couple of days ago that the Fall 2008 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale will be held here in Fort Wayne the first week of October (Thursday 10/2 – Sunday 10/5).

If you are a regular visitor to this site, you may already know that Fort Wayne is my hometown. So, of course, I am completely thrilled that I will be able to attend the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale yet again this year! However, I almost feel bad about posting this, knowing that this location is not convenient for many of my readers. Although Fort Wayne usually is the site for the spring event, the fall sale is usually held in another state.

If you are considering making a road trip to Fort Wayne to attend the sale, you may want to check out some pictures I took when I attended it this spring, as well as the price list. The majority of items were 40% off, although I did hear that some things were further reduced as the sale progressed. I only attended the first day, and although I wanted to make a return trip, I couldn’t fit it into my schedule.

For those of you thinking of visiting Fort Wayne to attend the sale, the first week of October is a great time to visit! The autumn leaves are at their peak, and the weather is usually beautiful (as long as it’s not raining). Kendallville, a little town north of Fort Wayne, also has their Apple Festival scheduled for the first weekend of October. The Apple Festival is one of my favorite local events, and I look forward to it all year long. It has hundreds of craft booths, as well as some of the best homemade food you will find anywhere (famous Indiana pork tenderloins, vegetable soup, beef and noodles, apple cobbler, and much more…).

As you can see, I could go on and on, but to make a long post short, if you have any questions about the Vera Bradley outlet sale, or even about Fort Wayne and the surrounding area, feel free to leave me a comment below, and I will see if I can answer it for you…


  1. Hi! When I visited the spring 2008 Vera Bradley outlet sale, a kind woman in line with me shared a very valuable coupon. The coupon entitled bearer to $25 off $100 purchase. I saw many other people with the coupons. Can you tell me where they got them, and it they’ll be available for the fall 2008 sale? I want to be sure to have a coupon for this sale. Thank you!

  2. Hi Janis,

    I did receive one of those coupons at the sale, but I can’t remember who handed it to me – it was either one of the greeters or the cashier when I was checking out. I do recall the coupon I received was only good for the last day of the sale, and because I had a scheduling conflict and couldn’t make it back, I wasn’t able to use mine. I’m not sure if they will have one for the fall sale, but let’s keep our fingers crossed!
