Some Like It Vintage $50 Gift Card GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

March 19, 2010

I love love love vintage clothing. I've always wanted to start a little vintage clothing etsy shop. Having a financial obligation to look through thrift store racks sounds like the life for me:)


Veronica of Some Like It Vintage is living that life. Her online store is PACKED with hundreds of vintage items from the past few decades. All deliciously vintage.


She is offering a $50 Gift Card to her store to one lucky Grosgrain winner.


One of my favorites from her site was this retro bronze satin gown.


Unlike other Vintage Shops, their garments are re-designed and re-constructed to extend them a second life. Reconstruction involves the re-working of a vintage garment (that was otherwise not wearable) to make it once again wearable. Putting an urban and modern feel to a vintage garment while maintaining its history is another way to reduce waste.

Vintage clothing by default, is eco-friendly. Vintage is not new, but it is used clothing. Some Like it Vintage, is committed to our environment by stressing the importance of recycling and using little or no energy resources. Bio-degradable products are also used in their cleaning processes.


Their items are carefully chosen to incorporate function, practicality, wearability -- and of course high style. Says Veronica, "The quality of vintage clothing often surpasses anything made today and not only is it environmentally friendly, it is a fun and unique way to shop!"


Many of you said that you would like to enter more giveaways, but have various issues with linking. Of course, I want anyone that is interested in entering a giveaway to be able to do so.


Therefore, from now on, giveaways can be entered in three ways:


1) By linking (to your blog, facebook, myspace, or any other site)


2) By leaving a comment without a link or


3) By linking and leaving a comment (this will be worth 2 entries which will better your chances of winning). Find more info under the FAQ page.



If you are leaving a link just use the 'create a link' at the bottom of this post or simply creating a post on your blog and including this link.If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.
