1930s accessories giveaway!


Thank you everyone for all your support, interest, and comments, I wish I could give each and every one of you a little gift to show my appreciation, but I think the closest I can get to is a few giveaways, so you have a better chance of winning something!


The first is a set of 1930s accessories, with a little black straw topper, tiny purse, and rhinestone brooch (I don't think the brooch is from the 30s, but it completed the look). The 1930s suit is for sale here, but all you have to do to win the accessories is leave a comment on this post! The giveaway will last for 24 hours, then there will be a 1940s set giveaway, and then a 1950s giveaway. So if these things don't strike your fancy stay tuned! This giveaway will be open until about 6:30 pacific time on Wednesday the 17th. Good Luck!

xoxo
