Dime Store Thrift Thrifting Giveaway--Let Me Thrift For You!

JUST A REMINDER THAT SEPTEMBER FIRST IS ALMOST UPON US...ENTER NOW!

I've been wanting to do another giveaway but have been uncertain on what I wanted to give away! Until I remembered what my blogging buddy Missa from Thrift Candy did awhile back and I am so going to borrow her idea.

I am offering up my Thrifting Services. For FREE!

You tell me what you are into and I shall thrift for you! Actually the more you tell me about things you like, the better the prize will be! Do you like Owls? Oil Lamps? Christmas Kitsch? (oh wait, these are my likes!) Tupperware? Books? Clothing? Purses? Shoes? Vintage linens? Ephemera? What do you drool over? What makes you squeal? Tell me about yourself and I should be able to find you something awesome, I buy it, I wrap it and I send it on its way...Just For You! Again, Free!

Sound like fun?

Leave A Comment for one entry...

One winner will be randomly drawn on September 1st...

OH FUN!!! - Count me in!! I'm sure you know my loves by now, but some of the 'easy ships' are... sweater clips, enamel flower pins, VERA linens and scarves, and..., and..., and! (I'm already a 'follower' - does that count??)

Wow, this is the coolest idea. I just hope nobody collects vintage bowling balls!
Count me in. I collect too much of everything, but my choice would either be vintage scientific equipment (beakers, etc.), or anything Mexican. I'm obsessed with Day of the Dead objects, but would be thrilled to own a Mexican tablecloth.
I adore your blog. Sorry it took this contest to remind me to become a follower. I was dating this blog before and now I'm officially married to it.
Amen,
Erin

Hi... I've just found your blog and I'm so happy that I did. I've searched for thrifting blogs and finally found a few. Your giveaway sounds like great fun...my interest are everything from Pyrex to a new love..hat pins. I simply love those beautiful hat pins. I've also become a follower, I love thrifting and like to see what great finds others are lucky enough to come across.

Great idea, I'm in! I'd love anything on my thrifting list:
Xiying teapots, tiny houses, a dollhouse to mount on the wall for storage, really good cake pans (steel, need three!), and vintage umbrellas.

Recently found your blog...love it! Can we Canadians enter your contest too?? Please! Cause if we can...then I personally love those little oil lamps too, as well as gaudy old brooches and coin purses, absolutely anything with a cameo, childrens books, postage stamps, and native art. Happy Thrifting!
