While you may not be on your way to Platform 9 ¾ this fall, that doesn’t mean your back-to-school season shopping can’t be totally magical. Whether you’re looking for a new backpack, bag, or notebook, you can get it all with Vera Bradley’s Harry Potter back-to-school collection. The line includes pieces inspired by the four houses, as well as iconic scenes from the series, and it’s all available now on Vera Bradley’s website.
“Experience the awe and excitement of the Harry Potter and Vera Bradley collection, where we found infinite inspiration in all our most-loved scenes from Harry Potter,” Vera Bradley’s website reads, “and then added a dash of our own Muggle Magic.” Some of that magic even involved going so far as to create a unique pattern called “Home to Hogwarts.” The print features Hedwig, flying keys, round glasses, and more subtle nods to the Harry Potter world.
To sweeten this deal, Vera Bradley has even released a scavenger hunt on its website. While it’s not as difficult as competing in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, the prize might be better. The more clues you get correct, the greater chances you have at winning a Harry Potter x Vera Bradley prize package, which includes backpacks, travel essentials, and more. There are even prizes for the runner-ups, so get to sleuthing.
Like all Harry Potter collabs, this one is selling pretty quickly. If you want to have the most witchy school year yet, call out “Accio credit card” ASAP. Check out some of the collection’s highlights below.
