Giveaway Central!

Hi Everyone!
Just a reminder that my fabulous
Anthropologie / The Find Giveaway
is still going strong, and you really, really 
don't want to miss this one!
In appreciation of all my wonderful bloggy friends and followers,
I'm offering an oh-so-spendable

$25 Gift Card to Anthropologie!


A Personalized Copy of the awesome book:

The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details
by the Elegant Thrifter himself, Stan Williams.

About "The Find", Barnes and Nobles says....
"Elegantly photographed, filled with practical sidebars about 
refurbishing, styling, and treasure-hunting, 
and replete with the quirky sensibility that has made Housing Works 
one of the most popular destinations for great things, 
The Find is at once a handbook and inspiration for vintage decorating. 
Secondhand does not mean second rate 
when there’s always something special to be found. "

Just sign up as a follower here, or if you're already a follower, you're in!
If you give my giveaway a shout-out on your blog, that's good for three extra chances!
I'll announce the winner October 31.

And I'm hardly the only kid on the block having a fab giveaway this week!
You really owe it to yourself to pop on over to my pal Angélique's great blog
for her 100th follower giveaway!

Angélique is offering one lucky blogger a
$50 Visa Gift Card!
Head on over to Six-n-One to grab the details
on how to win this great prize and to congratulate Ms. M on this blogging milestone.

And don't forget that Theresa of Garden Antqs Vintage
is generously offering a
$50 Gift Certificate to either her online blog shop 
or one of her booths at Winnie and Tululas or Heritage Antiques.

Find out how you can be the lucky winner

A reminder...

I've noticed that a good number of you who have entered my giveaway 
don't have public profiles or any contact info...
when I click on your name, I get this message:

"The Blogger Profile you requested cannot be displayed.
Many Blogger users have not yet elected to publicly share their Profile. 
If you're a Blogger user, we encourage you to enable access to your Profile."

If I draw your name as the lucky winner, I need to be able to contact you,
so while you might be able to find out the good news by checking here regularly,
you also might want to consider enabling public access to your profile.

Just a thought!

Good luck to all and best wishes!

The Elegant Thrifter said... are still going strong. I have been tweeting it. Do you tweet?? Stan

Anne Lorys said...

Hi Stan! I don't tweet! Well, that's not entirely true, I've used Twitter in the past, but not for months now. In case ya can't tell, I'm a wee bit verbose (ya think?), and Twitter feels like Cliff Notes when I need the unabridged Anna Karenina to get my point across. My fatal flaw, know of a good editor? ;-)

Ticking and Toile said...
