Vera Bradley seeking answers regarding swiped ‘skee ball’ trailer

The trailer takes on a box-like form when closed up. Opened, it allows for the display of Vera Bradley merchandise alongside two arcade style “skee ball” games.

Vera Bradley posted a plea for help to some of its social media accounts. In it, the company asked:

Several people responded that they had, in fact, seen the trailer along the side of the highway.

It’s not the only mobile display of this sort for the northeast Indiana-based company. Vera Bradley has also toured a “Plinko”-styled game, which visits college campuses and appears at other promotional events.
