500 Followers GiveAway...

Wowza! 500 followers,thanks ever so much to all my readers!Alright,technically at 507 but for those who have been with my blog since the start you're well aware that I'm not exactly prompt with these things.I try but fail miserably.Buuuuut hey I had the excuse of moving into a new home this time around,that's a good excuse,right?No?Ok,tough crowd,geeze! ;)

I'm back in the Midwest and it feels good!After being in southern California for a year and 1/2 I almost forgot about 4 seasons.I'm in the great white north with lots of snow,I thought I'd do a snow inspired giveaway.Thus all my goodies for this giveaway are white!For one lucky reader you get a Robinson's pillbox hat,a hankie,2 pairs of earrings and a darling Avon poodle decanter.All of it vintage naturally as this IS a vintage themed blog..mostly.sometimes I ramble on about other things.Its what I do best(SEE,I'm doing it RIGHT NOW!).

Here are the rules:Obviously be a follower of my blog.I want to to go over to my Etsy shop and tell me what your favorite item is.I'm using you,my fellow vintage lovers, as market research as to what I should keep my eyes out for when vintage hunting.Leave your favorite item in a comment and you got yourself one entry for the drawing.If you like me on facebook that will count as a second entry.If you've already liked me let me know and I'll make a note of it to put you into the bowl twice.I'll do a drawing and announce the winner on Friday.This is open for all my readers so international readers please don't feel left out.

The internet is a big freaking place and I appreciate the friends I've made through it,sharing a little slice of my world with you all and getting to see some of yours.Good luck to everyone and once again thanks for reading!

    Such great stuff in this giveaway.
    That poodle is adorable!

    Now choosing a favorite out of your store is not very easy. I pretty much like everything in it. *lol*
    I guess I would say your dresses and those barkcloth drapes. *LOVE EM*

  10. Congrats on over 500 followers!!! I had a hard time choosing a favourite item, but if I had to pick just one it would be the 1920s Art Deco Sterling Silver Rhinestone and Jet Brooch :)

  11. Without a doubt, my favourite has to be the 1920s Mandalian Purse (http://www.etsy.com/listing/51237513/1920s-mandalian-purse-vintage-art-deco), just because it is so wonderfully, fabulously ornate! Even right down to the clasp. Sadly, it's out of my budget, or I would have bought it by now.

    I've only been following your blog/facebook page for a month or so, but it's definitely become one of my favourites to read!

    I really want of these. I had a mini one age 5 (only 10 years ago, haha) and these gorgeous bags make me so happy!!
    it's a shame I'm in australia, and by the looks of it you don't ship here.

  16. Frankly My Dear I do ship internationally!I normally wait for a buyer to contact me on the heavier items so I can weigh it and give a quote.

  17. Gosh I guess I haven't been here since I started blogging & I didn't put together that you're the Art Deco Dame from Etsy! I adore your store & I think you don't need to do marketing research - you're spot on for finding beautiful things! I guess if I have to choose one thing as a favorite it would be that gorgeous Mandalian bag (champagne taste on a beer budget you know ;-) Wow, what a beauty! I've favorited your store & "liked" your FB page quite a while back. Anyway, I'm so happy you got to escape SoCal & go home! I couldn't live there if my life depended on it. Hope you're getting happily settled back in. I'll be by more often & by all means, do drop by & say hi at my blog too - the welcome mat's always out :- )
