Passion and Paisley's 1st Birthday {FREE Giveaway & Anniversary Sale!}

Sweet Birdie Gift Tags by pearliebird on Etsy

One year ago tomorrow, Passion and Paisley was born! A magazine article on vintage fashion led me to Etsy, where I browsed handmade gloves for hours and instantly fell in love with the site. I quickly discovered that I could easily open my own shop, and after days of brainstorming, Passion and Paisley was opened on October 11th 2009!

In order to celebrate Passion and Paisley's 1st birthday, I will be having an "anniversary sale" where everything in the shop will be 15% off! The sale will last from October 11-17th. I will also be celebrating with Passion and Paisley's first FREE GIVEAWAY!! Read below for more details...

*Prize: The winner will receive a $25 credit to Passion and Paisley! This credit can be spent on anything in the shop and never expires. You can even pass the prize on to a friend if you're feeling extra nice. The credit will be emailed to the winner immediately!

*How to enter: Entering the giveaway is easy! Here's the two simple steps for you to take:

1. After "liking" Passion and Paisley's Facebook page, simply suggest the page to friends. {There is a blue "suggest to friends" link under the profile picture on the Facebook page.}For every friend that "likes" Passion and Paisley, you will receive an entry into the giveaway! Each contestant will be limited to 15 entries.

2. Email me at with a list of the names of the people that you sent suggestions to, so I can count up your entries and notify you if you are the winner. Once your friends have "liked" the page, they are welcome to enter the giveaway as well!

Just to clarify...this is a raffle and the winner will be randomly drawn. Having 15 entries will give you a better chance of winning, but you could win with only one entry!

*Dates: The winner will be announced on Sunday, October 17th! I will count up how many friends "liked" Passion and Paisley on Facebook early Sunday morning, so be sure to send your suggestions to friends and send your list to me by Saturday, October 16th at 11:59pm.
