Thursday Giveaway...

This week, one lucky winner will score this huge pile of Vintage Reproduction Glass Beads! They come courtesy of the fine folks at Eclectica! The beads are made out of two-tone glass in original vintage molds. They're newly crafted in Germany and have a retail value of $200! What I love about these beads is their timeless designs; although they've got a vintage vibe, they'd be perfect for contemporary jewelry – especially in some really cool Steampunk pieces. Want to see the full selection of Vintage Reproduction Glass beads from Eclectica, CLICK HERE. They've got a wide array to choose from!

To win these awesome glass beads is so EASY! All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post. It's that simple! One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the comment section of this post on Monday (June 27th) at midnight EST. Anonymous comments won't fly with this prize; make sure to leave your name and email address if it doesn't already appear next to your comment. This giveaway is open to all participants, including international readers!

Bonus Points: Do you really want these lovely glass beads? If you're seriously lusting after them, you can earn additional entries to win by blogging, updating your Facebook status, and/or Twittering about this Thursday Giveaway. Don't forget to add your act of social media kindness as a SEPARATE comment to this blog post for your extra shot at winning these luscious pieces from Eclectica! (Also, if you spread the word about this giveaway, you'll qualify for the Virtual Yard Sale Giveaway too! To find out more about winning that prize, CLICK HERE.)

EXTRA Bonus Points: Wait, that's not all! You can earn yet ANOTHER chance to win these beads by "Liking" Eclectica on Facebook. Take a trip over to their page, make sure you're signed in, and click "LIKE". (If you already LIKE them that's cool too – keep up the good work!) Once you've successfully liked them, report back here and comment again saying that you've accomplished the task! CLICK HERE to visit their Facebook page.

darbyscloset said...

So I scrolled down to this post and guess what the cat does.....?! She sits on the desk (she NEVER sits on the lap top..well not that I know of), tail in my face and hardly would allow me to leave this comment...I think the cat ("Charlie") has a serious desire/fas-in-a-tion to win this loot..so do I enter her name or mine.....
