Giveaway: nostalgia package

UPDATE: Congratulations to Mary Has Sound! She won this giveaway.

Nostalgia package giveaway

My beloved just cleaned out some old drawers, and was about to throw away this "Nostalgia package" that someone had given him as a gift, years and years ago. We're both trying to glean our possessions a bit, and I don't know exactly what I'd do with it, either... except that it's full of cool and vintage things! So, another blog giveaway is born. Not part of the package, but I'm throwing it in anyway, is a Peppermint Smencil, a "gourmet scented pencil" made from 100% recycled newspapers.

The nostalgia package (Contents: Great Old Stuff!) contains a domino, an empty brown glass bottle, two watches, some ribbons, a silver plastic catcher figurine, a pack of cards with a McCarthy button, old hair curlers, more pens and pencils, old labels and paper ephemera, and more!

I thought the old paper ephemera might be of most interest to my readers, so I arrayed that all out in the above photo. The greeting cards are unused, but the postcards have both been sent.


1. HOW: To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post. One comment/entry per person, please.

2. WHO: No anonymous comments will be approved. You need a blogger profile to enter this giveaway (simply because I need to know who you are - I'm not going to count through "anonymous #7"), and if you don't have a blogger profile yet, just make one. It's fast, easy and free, doesn't require a blog, and I think only requires a valid email address. Also, your profile/email address MUST be viewable, or you must provide a valid email address in your comment. If your name is drawn as the winner, and I don't have or can't access an email address for you, I'll choose another winner. (Don't be an Indigo.)

3. WHERE: I'm going to be a little loose with the location restriction, in an unorthodox way. Anyone from the USA may enter. If you are in a foreign country, you may enter IF we already correspond (Sirpa, Bianca, Zoë, etc...). If you live outside the USA and we have not corresponded, you are not eligible to win this one.

4. WHEN: The deadline for comments/entries is 11:59pm (Eastern Standard/NYC time) on Sunday, June 13. I will choose and announce the random winner on Monday, June 14.

Good luck!
