Day 7 Giveaway: Thrift Shop

Filed under Cat's Away... 2010, Giveaways, Sale

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

Today’s Giveaway kinda veered into a ’50s vintage sewing theme. Although a few things are only tethered via an aqua color connection, I think it’s a great package of goodies.

Note: all the indented items are included in the Giveaway. There are some additional (related) things just put on sale that are not in the Giveaway (down at the bottom of this page).

Also note: there will be 1 runner-up for today’s Giveaway. The 3 items in the runner-up’s package have red asterisks (*) below.

New & On Sale
(and included in the Giveaway)

Aqua Ribbon with Gold Borders
New & on Sale! Beautiful aqua ribbon with sheer gold/orange borders. Very lightweight… feels like silk, although it isn’t. 1-1/2″ wide. 1 yard is included in the Giveaway.

*Somerset Digital Studio – 3 Issue Set
New & on Sale! What fun eye candy! Most of the beautiful pieces use a mix of digital and traditional techniques, so don’t feel inhibited if you don’t make “digital” artwork.

Note: only(!) 2 issues are included in the Giveaway (same for the runner’s up package, too).

Thrift Shop Word Stickers
New & on Sale! 45 cardstock stickers. 5-1/2″ x 12″ sheet.

Thrift Shop Scrapbook Paper – Needs Paint

Sew Nice Scrap Sheet
New & on Sale! Double-sided cardstock, printed with lots of fun, retro images of women, sewing instructions, thread ads, etc. Perfect for gift tags or collage. 8″ x 19″ sheet (folded in half for shipping). Note: These are not die cut or perfed; you’ll need to cut out the images (but most of the images are laid out so when you cut out the pic on one side, a full image automatically gets cut out of the reverse side; perfect for tags where both sides will show).

6 More Sewing-Themed Collage Sheets:
– Sweetly Sewing
– Sewing with Kitty
– Sewing in Black & White
– Sewing Ads
– Buy Our Thread
– What’s Sew Funny?

Note: Most of the sale links from this page go to a page showing short-term sale items in conjunction with this Giveaway.

Here’s the recap of the Giveaway Rules. And check yesterday’s post for some Tags & Type items that are still on sale.

So leave me a comment and tell your friends.

    I LOVE the Thrift Shop Wild Cards! If only I had kept,,,,,I think we all have that thought. If I had kept everything I would have needed a 30,000 square foot warehouse to store it all. 16 moves in 14 years kept my collecting habit in check. Thank goodness we have Leslie to scout around and find such neat items to use in our art.
    Happy New Year and thank you for the chance to win!

  46. debsea says:
