Jubilee Bag Giveaway!

The Sun has finally come out here in the UK, just in time for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations. Bunting is appearing in unusual places, and I have already purchased my union flag paper plates in preparation.

It is the perfect time for another giveaway, Red White and Blue themed of course!

No, it isn't one of our Red, White and Blue Fleur dresses, since we did that kind of recently, but we do have 15% off them until the end of May (we only have about 15 left so do be quick)

It is, instead, a 50s/60s wicker handbag with an adjustable strap (two domes hold it securely)
Here it is with the shorter adjustment...
and here with the strap in the longest position


I suspect it is American, since the buyer I got it from gets a lot from the states. I paid a whopping £65 for it because it is so very unusual. I love adjustable straps, and I also like bags with only one strap, since my shoulders seem too narrow to hold a second strap on!

It isn't perfect, but it is very very good for it's age. It has a couple of scuff marks and some stitching is coming undone at the bottom of the lining.

Overseas entries are welcome, though we realise that the prize might not get to you in time for the celebrations. But hey, there are the Olympics, Thanksgiving and Nautical parties that this bag would love to accompany you to.

The competition rules are straight forward and offer three chances to get involved...
  • For one entry, leave me a comment below. 
  • For another entry, you can retweet our quick competition.
  • For a third entry, post about the giveaway on your own blog! 
Please take careful note that each time you enter you must leave a separate comment. Don't leave me one comment saying you've done all three things, as it will only be counted once! 

If you commenting to say you've retweeted or blogged, please post the link.
The competition will close Monday 28th May at Midnight BST.
That should give us time to get the winner's address and get the bag in the post to you on Wednesday.

 Happy Celebrating!!
