You pick what you get, GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello, hello...hope everyone is having a stellar Saturday,
mine has been W O N D E R F U L.
Even though I went out to Cool Shoes dance party last night and drank enough to feel like complete crap during the night, I decided to get up and go estate sale shopping this morning anyway.

Oh boy, oh boy... so thankful that I did.
Despite the fact that I may have missed some amazing finds earlier in the week, I love Saturday sales because the crowds are smaller and the discounts are larger! Of the two sales that I went to, one had discounts of 90% (everything HAD to go) and the other was doing 50% off! Needless to say, I walked away with a bundle!
I bought 28 items at a grand total of $35.30.

AND...
because I'm in such a great mood from all this luck, I've decided to do my very first
GIVEAWAY!!!

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which item shown below is your favorite. I will draw a winner next Saturday and if you win you will receive the item that you picked! The ONLY thing that I just can't give away is that sweet, sweet 40's velvet hat with veil...I've been looking for one of those for waaaay too long to let it go!
(Don't forget to leave your email address!)

My look for the sales:

Tee & Boots: Forever 21
Skirt: Salvation Army

Hello

I just came across your blog today, and I'm glad to say that I did. Estate sales remind me of when I was a little girl. My dad would always take us to them on Sundays. You managed to pick up some amazing goodies, but out of all of them I really like the vintage love poster.

Note to self: find estate sale to go to today.

Have a lovely day

Christine said...

i know a girl named garrett who would kill for that overall dress, but rather than face charges of homicide i'd probz just give it to my sweet heather.

Scott Strickland said...

I have just had the pleasure of stumbling upon your lovely blog. Your finds are absolutely amazing and your luck is quite astounding.
The victorian mansion print is very quaint, the vintage playboy poster is, as you said, quite dandy and the movie posters are charming. I would be fortunate to possess any of them...

Have a delightful evening.

Hana said...

You've got some great finds here lady! The tortoise shell vintage frames are especially gorgeous! Pretty please?

What an amazing giveaway! First of all, I can't believe you were able to muster enough energy to go estate sale shopping after a night of drinking...wine is always my demise for productivity! :)

Claradevi said...

Ah! Let me join :)

It's so hard to pick any favorite one. Everything about vintage items is always look beautiful for me... But If I really have to choose one, I will pick the little cameo brooch! I never have any cameo gems and never really see any vintage cameo with my own eyes. There's no such thing you can find around here, or in any thrift stores ans antiques shops i've ever visited. So I will die for any cameo I find, moreover when its offered for free! LOL :P

But if i'm not winning anything, then I hope it will goes to someone who will take a good care of it! And you've been always nice and kind to me so I won't ask anything more :)

_nina_malvada_ said...
