Mega Blog Giveaway

To celebrate six months on Folksy I am having a mega giveaway and it comprises of the following:

·        Silk patchwork cosmetics purse - measures 20.5cm (8ins) wide x 18cm (7ins) deep with base = 15cm  (6ins) long x 5cm (2ins) wide

·        Red Coin purse - measures 12cm (4.75ins) x 10.5cm (4.25ins)

·        Six green vintage buttons (approx. 20mm diameter at widest point)

·        1 metre cream vintage lace with width 10cm (4ins)

·        A6 notebook

·        Pack of 4 A6 patchwork cards (or note lets) comprising of three green and one black. (Each card has six circles of different fabrics stitched on the front. (They are blank inside.)

Six items – one for each month I have been on Folksy! I am looking for THREE lucky winners and each winner will receive TWO items from the above selection.

Why am I celebrating?  There are a couple of reasons.  I opened my shop back in October 2011 and quite soon after I had a few sales and this was very encouraging.  My bags, purses and journals seem to attract people looking for Christmas gifts, so I joined Folksy at the right time.
In December I became a member of the daily listing club and very quickly began to enjoy getting to know other sellers on Folksy.  The support and encouragement I received trying to sell my handmade items really made it worthwhile.  I learnt lots too.  I was able to make improvements to my shop by providing better photographs.
Compared to other sellers on Folksy I feel that I have been very lucky in achieving nearly sixty sales in six months!  I love what I do.  I want to share what I love with other people.  All good reasons to celebrate and this giveaway is my way of saying “thank you for your support”. It’s very exciting!  I am looking forward to finding out who the winners are!

How to enter my mega giveaway:
1.   Become a member of my blog if you aren’t one already.
2.   Leave a comment on this post.
3.   Say in the comment which one item (of the six items) you would most like to receive and why.

All the names that have entered will then be collected together. Then three names will be randomly selected to receive two each of the above items.  The mega giveaway closes at 9pm on Sunday 22nd April 2012.

I will update this post to announce the winners on Monday.  Good luck everyone!


P.S.  Don’t forget I am also offering 25% discount off ALL purses listed in my shop until Sunday too!

  3. I love all your products especially the journal. And you're doing so well on Folksy, unlike many. Congratulations1

  4. Congratulations on your successful 6 months on Folksy Edwina!
    I love the purse (any of them) the most!

  5. Well done on such a great 6 months! I hope that it continues! I love the cosmetic purse. Mine is on it's last legs and could really do with retiring! I am already a follower of your blog. Sue x

  6. Hi,
    Congratulations on your six months on Folksy! You also have a lovely blog! If I was so luck to win one of your prizes, I would choose the vintage lace! I go crazy for vintage haberdashery and trims and this lace would make any boring item adorable in an instant! Monica xx

  7. Congratulations on doing so well in your first six months. That's pretty impressive, given the climate at the moment. So hard to choose a favourite from your amazing giveaway - but I think it has to be the cosmetics purse, such lovely colours.

  8. Well done on reaching the six month mark and congrats on all those sales. It is difficult to choose just one favourite, but the notebook is stunning and you can't have too many!

  9. Fabby giveaway, Edwina, well done on getting all those sales within 6 months! I particularly like the red coin purse, I can't get enough of cute purses!

  10. Congratulations! That's an impressive tally! Here's to the next 60 :o) They are all lovely and a fab giveaway but if I had to choose one it would be the notebook - it's stunning!

  11. As a proud owner of some of your gorgeous items already, I can vouch for the wonderful crafstmanship, exceptional beauty and quality of your items, and those that I have managed to part with as gifts for my loved ones, have been gratefully received too!

    I already follow your blog, so meet that criteria, I adore all the items you have chosen for your give-away and would be happy to receive any of them, if I was lucky enough to be one of the winners. the cosmetic bag is beautiful, but would not get to use it myself, however, as my budding teenager would covert it, I love the little red purse, so cute, and the vintage lace is to die for. The cards are gorgeous too and I am a recognised and fully paid up member of button-aholics, they would be very happy here in my button collection too. I don't keep a journal, maybe I should, but so much of my life is on line now, I see that as a bit of a journal now, however it would make a fantastic gift!

    So basically I am saying I would be happy to receive any of your items, any would be gratefully and happily made a home.

    Congratulations on a very successful first six months, long may it continue!
