Pack Your Bags ~ The Ravinia Festival Awaits (plus win a set of Ravinia Ivory Accessories)

July 2, 2012

With July 4th this week we couldn’t help thinking of the remarkable Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois.   The oldest outdoor music festival in the United States, artists slated to perform this month include The Chicago Symphony, Santana, The Emerson String Quartet, Midori, and Seal.  The schedule of events run through September so hop on a train, plane or in the car and get there.  Listen to wonderful music, enjoy a fabulous picnic (what better thing than 4th of July at The Ravinia?) and relax.  Take a stroll through the festival’s Flickr stream and you’ll get in the mood immediately. Here are some of our favorite shots from last week’s events:

While cinda b has no affiliation with the Ravinia Festival – Cinda Boomershine was certainly inspired by it.  Ravinia Ivory is one of our most popular colorways – with it’s brightly intertwined colors and harmonic pattern, we think it evokes the sophistication, fun, and warmth of the Ravinia Festival itself.

Want a little bit of Ravinia Ivory to carry around with you on your daily journey?  We’re giving away a cute set of Pencil & Brush Bag and a Sunglasses Case in the Ravinia Ivory colorway (a $40 value).  Just comment below and we’ll pick a winner on Friday July 6th (so be sure to check back).

**Update** the winner of this week’s giveaway is:  Melissa Wilson who wrote:

“I absolutely love Cinda B’s products! Every time I go out of town and use my Weekender or Vacationer in Casablanca Sky Blue, I get tons of compliments on my bags, and i’m asked, “Where can I get a bag like that?” Right away I direct them to your website, and a conversation is started about your products!

I have always loved the Ravinia Ivory collection. The festival looks and sounds like such a good time. Maybe, just maybe I can get out there one year and experience it. Thanks for this opportunity.

I love ALL of my cindab purses, bags, etc. I get stopped all the time. Always giving credit where it is due. They love that it is all made from here. Thanks cindab and staff for all you do.

Amy July 3, 2012 at 10:05 am

I just adore all cinda b bags and accessories! I would love to add a few pieces of Ravina Ivory to my growing collection!

Anne Kaluza July 3, 2012 at 10:05 am

Ravinia … my favorite Cinda B pattern yet! Fun and classy … I especially like that there is ORANGE in the design!!! The pictures on this blog are always so amazing … it almost makes me ready for my kids to grow and so I can go back to work and have an income so we have a little extra to spend on getaways and new Cinda B bags. Almost … but not quite, the little extras will have to wait while I savor each and every hug, kiss, and shared moment with my little ones :)

Amy Smolinski July 3, 2012 at 10:07 am

I love Cinda B! I have also gotten may of my friends to change over to Cinda B. They are all so practical and able to be used everyday. Thanks for making such wonderful products in a great variety of colors. Amy.

Holli Jo July 3, 2012 at 10:09 am

Would love to win this set! I got my mom one of these bags for Christmas last year, this would be a great add-on!

ModMomma July 3, 2012 at 10:18 am

This would match may diaper bag! I found a leaking food pouch in it the other day and it cleaned up beautifully!

Allison July 3, 2012 at 10:19 am

I got my first Cinda B for mothers day this year and have since added 3 more bags to my “collection”. I have three children (4, 2 and 6 months) and as you can well imagine things get dirty real fast. But with your bags, they are easy to keep clean, either with a swipe of a wet cloth or just throwing them into the washer. Your merchandise is a mothers dream. Thank you for making such a wonderful product and I look forward to adding more to my “collection” in the future!!!!

Elizabeth July 3, 2012 at 10:20 am

Love the clean and sophisticated look of the Ravinia ivory pattern!

Erica Hamilton July 3, 2012 at 10:26 am

There is nothing better than a little getaway :) to see a new place, people, culture and find your peace of mind away from reality. Bought my first Ravinia Ivory piece from a neat little store in Southeast Kansas and my collecion has slowly grown over the past few years. I will admit I have almost become obsessed with this style, so much that I am proud to always buy a piece for a gift every time an occasion comes up. Thanks for the beautiful American Made, very useable accessory. :)

Brittany July 3, 2012 at 10:39 am

I love these!

Kathleen Cousins July 3, 2012 at 10:39 am

I love the Ravinia Ivory pattern, but I selected Belize Brown for my purse, courier bag, totes, etc. thinking the darker background might be the best for me. I’ve had so many compliments …my hobo bag is a conversation piece. After a recent trip, I felt so organized gathering all of the Belize pieces …didn’t have to do the second time around search for my belongings! I bought a bag for my niece a few years ago, more pieces for a graduation gift in June 2o12 beginning a collection of fun items for me. Love all of the products, background stories, blog, and MADE IN THE USA!

Lindsey July 3, 2012 at 10:51 am

I love my Ravinia Ivory Hobo & Weekender. I feel stylish & sophisticated when I am on business trips with my cindaB bags. What I love most is that cindaB is AMERICAN MADE – right here in my area. Makes me very proud!

Cinda Steckbeck July 3, 2012 at 10:56 am

SUPER cute stuff!! :)

jigisha gor July 3, 2012 at 11:13 am

I recently discovered cindab at a tennis pro shoppe and have fallen in love! I plan to slowly shift all my totes to cindab whether its carrying my yoga mat, tennis racquet or packing for a weekend getaway. The American quality and stylish designs mean that cindab is my gift of choice for baby showers, teachers, collge grads (stylish for the trek to interviews and first jobs) and of course, friends! Also, congrats on the birth of baby B!

Melissa July 3, 2012 at 11:29 am

I’ve been to Ravinia a couple of times. Hope I win! Thanks.

My husband and I love hiking in the North Georgia mountains in the fall with friends. The brown, green, orange, blue, etc in this pattern reminds me of my favorite place to be of all place GOD created. The serene and peacefulness seems to echo out from this pattern. I would love to win the pieces! Diane P. from Bainbridge, GA

Melissa S July 3, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Ravinia Ivory is my favorite pattern in your collection! It is the perfect choice for summer and matches almost everything I own, so it is great to take with when traveling – no need to pack multiple purses.

Kelly July 3, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Just got my first Cinda B piece. Love it, Love it, Love it!!!!!!!!!!!

Holly Hast July 3, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I am so hooked on Cinda B bags! I love the colors and the variations of the quilting patterns for the different styles/colors. When people compliment me on my bag, I can’t wait to tell them that it was made in Indiana! Go USA!
