The End of Pierre Deux



So sad to hear the end of the beautiful Pierre Deux stores nationwide. All 23 stores shut abruptly last week amidst Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filings. I have been such a huge fan of this lovely store and all it's wonderful fabric bags. I used to save up and buy them when I was in college, creating quite a collection. They were so well made and came in such a variety of sizes. In my opinion, they are the more sophisticated version of a Vera Bradley bag.



Part of my cherished collection of Pierre Deux accessories. The big green bag has hot pink flowers...I used two weeks of my college allowance to purchase this in Palm Beach on my way to school.

The website is still up but the phone number is not valid. No news on their Facebook page either. Will keep you posted.
Au Revoir!!

WHAT?!?!?!?!!!!!!!

I can't believe this! I'm in shock! I was just there 3 weeks ago and bought a set of pewter coasters! I live that store and also own a few totes among other things from there! Boooooo!

In going to have to check out the store back in Chicago when I get home. ;(

I had totally forgotten about this brand! Brings back memories, though. Tough economic times are leading to the demise of many great brands.
