ummm by any chance does it have purple hairs and when you move it a certain way it changes to a dark purple cause if so that is a purple passion plant and just so happens that i have one :)

If the velvet plant is not what you were looking for perhaps 'Purple Heart Queen' sometimes called 'Moses in the Cradle' is... http://www.killerplants.com/plant-of-the-week/20021216.asp It is a form of wandering jew, but not your typical variety. It can be grown indoors and out in zone 7.... if so... I can look into sending you cuttings the next time my 'mamma' needs to be trimmed. (It's leaves are more fuzzy than velvety.)

Perhaps you are speaking of the 'Velvet Plant'. It is a houseplant. http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/interiorscape/Gynura_aurantiaca.html You can find them in most plant department of major chains, such as Lowes and Home Depot... in the house plant section if you can't find a cutting otherwise.
