It’s a giveaway

October 28, 2008 at 8:40 pm (giveaways) (, )

I love giving stuff away … wether it’s cleaning out my house to the Salvation Army, wrapping something up in a nice little package for a friend or family’s gift, or to complete strangers in a Bloggy Giveaway because I love to “feel the love” … I pretend each of you comment because you actually like & enjoy my blog – not my giveaway!  Stupid, I know!

So, on to the Giveaway – this year, I’m stealing an idea of my sister’s.  I went to the Atlanta Vera Bradley Outlet Sale with her last year & racked up on a lot of good things.  I had never owned VB before then.  And actually ended up only keeping a couple items.  But the deals were incredible so I stocked up!  Lucky for you!!  So here’s what I’m giving away – a Vera Bradley Black Microfiber wallet.  It has a coin pocket & opens up to hold cash (if anyone has any these days), cards, ID, etc.:

So are you a VB fanatic or do you just happen to have a couple pieces here & there like me??  Leave me a comment & let me know how many pieces you have (approximation will work just fine … I’m not coming to your house to check)!!

I’ll draw a winner on November 1st … oh & if you are a VB fanatic – go to Staci’s giveaway too!
