    Beautiful Miniature Decanters, Plus EXTRA 10% off EVERYTHING!

    Filed under Giveaways, Miniatures, Sale, Streets of Paris

    I thought of subtitling this newsletter “Sympathy for the Post Office.” I do sympathize; they have a lot more boxes to contend with, under a lack of funding and less worker bees than normal. On the other hand, I have many packages with new goodies delayed en route…

    So even though there are some lovely new items shown below, I’m giving you all an EXTRA 10% off what (zillion) items are already here! That’s 10% above current sale prices on the ENTIRE SITE!! Even if the item is already marked down as a clearance item or is one of the new items below!

    Use Promo Code: USPS when checking out.

    No minimum purchase required (excludes gift certificates/cards, shipping, taxes). May not be combined with another discount code.

    The coupon discount ends at midnight (PST) TUESDAY NIGHT, January 12, 2021!

     
    New Items

    Wow! The 3 new decanters are even nicer than I imagined. Those 3 and the new Mini Glass Cake Plate with Dome (also below) remind me of Laura Carson’s Black Cat Cafe from her Streets of Paris project. (Hint: see below for a Giveaway based on that project.)

     
    Revisiting the Black Cat Cafe Giveaway!

    Do you remember that amazing Streets of Paris project Laura made? Her Black Cat Cafe scene included display cases outside the cafe (like the close-ups at left), a patio with outdoor seating, and more seating and a bar inside (see far below for a photo of the bar, plus a close-up of some of the bottles below).

    I’m starting out this prize package with 1 each of the TWELVE bottles Laura used in that bar (not bad… 2-1/2 years later and we still have 12 out of the original 15 in stock)! Plus the Cafe Bottle Labels Collage Sheet Laura designed for labelling the bottles.

    AND I’m adding all 3 of the new decanters shown above! That’s 16 items in the prize!

    (Psst: If you want to see all of the supplies Laura used in that cafe, here’s the full list.)

    To enter the Revisiting the Black Cat Cafe Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment BELOW on this blog post TODAY or TOMORROW (the deadline is 11:59 pm PST, MONDAY Night, January 11, 2021).

    And tell me: what will you make from these items?

    Don’t forget to leave your (hello!) correct email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    Now don’t forget: use Promo Code: USPS when checking out for 10% off everything! Ends Tuesday night!
