ainslie wood co. giveaway



Today I am happy to host a giveaway courtesy of Ainslie Wood Co., a vintage shop on Etsy. I wrote about them here when they first opened the shop. Lately I have been turning down proposals to host giveaways, because I prefer to host giveaways of something I have purchased myself as a treat for one of you, as a thank you. I have never hosted a thrifted clothing one, though, and so I made an exception. Besides, their shop is filled with beautiful, spring-appropriate clothing! Also, I love Jane and Hollie's blog, Love It A Lot. I hope to meet them at the next Hamilton art crawl.

I picked three items from their shop; the winner will be able to choose one of the following: floral cotton shorts, floral wallet/clutch, or a floral sun dress.

To enter, please visit the shop, and leave a comment here with your favourite item from Ainslie Wood Co. I will choose a winner at random on Sunday evening. Good luck!









REPLIES

sweetie pie press: Ha! Such a brilliant idea. Your ideas bring all the crazy cat ladies to the yard.

modish: Thanks! I will work hard for you!

Kate: Yes! Unite! And haha, thanks. No shame in the cat-obsession game!

Beth: Awesome! Yeah, I don't try too hard with my regular Tumblr. There are so many amazing images on the ol' internet that I get really overwhelmed! But it's still nice to have.

Chaucee: I hope you do.

kater: Dude, I raided your Flickr favourites! There are so many cats in there! I have to go back. I wonder if streetcats will be nicer to us when we show them our cat club rings (although it does break my heart when they start galloping after me, because I can't bring them home).

Hannah: Oh, I'm so glad you like it! I hope you are reunited with your kitties soon. That's a great feeling.

Melanie: Thank you! Oh, that's your Luna! She is a beauty!

Ali: Oh! Added!

CARLY WAITO: Aahhhh! Added!

Every Little Counts: Oh yes, I do believe it's time! I bet there are so many baby NYC cats who could use some love!

Amanda: Purrfect.

katrina: Tuxedos are my favourite too! Especially because I have one. Best cats.

Gabriella: You're so right -- that's a great way to look at it.

becka: "Teeth gritting-ly cute and fluffy!" I love that description. I'm glad you like it so far!

alice: I saw it! Too cute.

Rebekka: Thank you!

Jane: Oh man, Fig Newton has the funniest face! Have you seen the watercolour of him that Melinda Josie did?

Tess: Eek! I hope you got it!

Megan: Thanks, pal! I'm glad you like it! I don't think I want any more tattoos but I think I would be happy to have a cat tattoo. Nice.

    All the things in the shop are pretty, I guess the simple white frame of the photos brings a sweeter shade to all them!
    But my favourites would be the Floral wallet/clutch and the Minty green tennis dress!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. man! I love their store!

    ReplyDelete
  27. maybe the navy antoinette sweater, for wearing with shorts and messy french braids?

    ps. sometimes I wish I spelt my name ainslie instead of ainsley (but I mostly just wish for a hyphen: ains-lee!)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think the Minnie dress is so darn cute!
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/35708837/1960s-minnie-dress-ml

    What a fun giveaway! Those floral shorts are all kinds of awesome! Always nice to find another great Etsy shop from Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love the floral clutch!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's entirely not the right season anymore, but I love the dark olive wool coat. I could see it as being so simple but flattering on.

    ReplyDelete
  31. the vintage reggie wilshire fur hat is a perfect representation of the style encouraged by hollie & jane at ainslie wood co. its elegant, rustic and has a charming history.

    anabela, if you're going to be around for the may art crawl, be sure to stop by my house as i turn it into a home gallery for most of the events. i live across from the cathedral! and make sure to bring caitlyn & erin from robber. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the sun dress! (I also love that they're all in sweet petite florals!)

  37. I think my favourite is the 1970s maxi dress!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh man, this was a hard call, there's a lot of good stuff in their shop! But I really like these:

    http://www.etsy.com/listing/44371114/eatons-high-waist-dark-khaki-shorts-lxl

    because I've been looking for a pair of simple, dark khaki shorts like that for ages! Too bad they're not my size...

    ReplyDelete
  39. My favourite is the floral cotton romper!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, I love those shorts!
    I can't decide my favorite. I like the Lace Up Brown Leather Ankle Boots, because I'm a sucker for vintage leather (not only do I feel better than buying new leather, but it's also already worn in and roughed up a little bit).
    And of course, the Cream Colored Cable Knit Sweater. While summer is quickly approaching here, I still love sweaters! Always

    ReplyDelete
  41. I LOVE vintage! I do believe the pretty 70's yellow faux wrap, with that darling little sequin applique on the side was made for me! Yellow is my favorite color after all!

    Ooh. La. La.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love this dress 'Floral Print Romper - s/m'

  44. So nice of you to host a giveaway! What a wonderful vintage store! The Meadow Woods Argyle Sweater really catches my eye.

    Oh, by the way, I was at a 50th wedding anniversary party recently, and they had tablecloths that looked peach in the dimmed light, gold confetti, and pretty decorations, and it made me think of your blog. Just thought I'd share! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh, I love the turquoise tennis dress (http://www.etsy.com/listing/41242496/minty-green-tennis-dress-sm). I used to have a dress just like it that I lost in the move to new york. Sad! so nice to see it's twin!

    just about to head home to australia and my shorts collection is woeful!
