On my recent trip home, my mom was kind enough to donate a couple of vintage items from her shop, Hourglass Consignment, for a giveaway. Today’s giveaway is for a lovely, vintage evening bag. It has intricate beading, scalloped edges and a snap closure. Leave a comment below, for a chance to win! The winner will be chosen at random on Wednesday, at 9 pm EST. Make sure you leave your email address or contact info, if you are not a registered user…I need a way to contact you, if you win.

Thank you to my mom, for the amazing giveaways. If you are in or around South Florida, please check out her store: Hourglass Consignment, in Margate, on 441 and Atlantic Blvd.

I have several wonderful giveaways lined up, so keep checking back!

    Ay, what a gorgeous clutch!
    Beautiful details. I wish I can go to your mom’s shop. It’s too bad there’s hardly any vintage store around here in my country..
    Anyways, I’d love to win that clutch!
