Sterling silver jewelry sparkles with sorority letters engraved on them.

Fabulous Party to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Vera Bradley's birth!

My, my, my! What a fabulous evening! The staff at Frill Seekers Gifts was delighted to be chosen to host a party to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Vera Bradley. Champagne: check! Pink and Green cupcakes: check! Free prizes: check! Fabulous Vera Bradley items: check!

Vera Bradley, who is the grandmother of one of the company's founders was born just a mere 100 years ago. Her style, flair and grace is what inspired the two founders to choose her as their company's namesake.

In fact, to honor her birthday, Vera Bradley (the company) released a beautiful journal. This timeless journal, features excerpts from Vera Bradley's own journal from the 1930's. The illustrations are lovely and the cover shows a collage of many of the best selling patterns that the company has produced over the years.

The party at Frill Seekers Gifts was standing room only. Customers were treated to a sneak peek of the Microfiber collection, which has a stunning zebra pattern for the lining.

When the sun finally set...the champagne bottles were empty, the pink and green cupcakes long gone...along with many, many Vera Bradley items. WOW! We just wish Vera Bradley (the birthday girl) would still be around to see her legacy.

Frill Seekers Kids Kamp 09 a huge success!

As summer 2009 winds down,the Frill Seekers Gifts team is delighted to report that Kids Kamp 09 was our largest year for registered participants yet! Instructor Peyton LoCicero shown in the photo with July kampers, indicated that this was Frill Seekers best year for kamp so far.

"The children has a blast in our creative arts and craft kamp classes," said LoCicero. "Their parents were able to drop them off at our Baytowne Wharf store and then go explore Sandestin!" LoCicero added.

From painting tropical t-shirts to creating seashell crosses, the kamp classes stayed booked from June until mid August.

This year, Frill Seekers Gifts, also plan to offer custom arts and craft birthday parties all year long. Parents looking for an entertaining, fun way to celebrate their child's birthday should call the shop at 850-267-4438 to inquire.

Snowbird Craft classes will be offered this fall and private classes for conventions and visiting groups are slated as well.

Surveys of this year's kampers indicate that the kamps earned and A+ ! We couldn't be more delighted.

Save the planet one bag at a time!

All it takes is just one single celebrity to get behind a cause or movement and the world can make a change.

Get a picture in a tabloid and the change becomes a trend. So goes the story of this recycled shopping tote. It's hard to pick up a magazine these days and NOT see at least one or two celebrities toting this adorable bag down Rodeo Drive. The idea behind these bags, besides looking stylish of course, is that you take this bag to grocery or the mall and instead of getting/wasting more put your purchases in this bag. Thus saving the trees and the bag at a time. Brilliant!

The Frill Seekers Gifts team couldn't be...well...more frilled...about it. Our bags are selling every minute of the day. Then we decided to "frill up" our recycle bags with a decal monogram...and BAM! A new trend emerged featuring our personalized totes. Aren't these cute?

It's painful to admit...but we guess the tabloids are good for SOMETHING! Who knew?
