Junk Revolution Kickoff Contest

Let the Revolution Begin
Contest Closes at 7:45 on Nov 10th.
Junk Revolution will launch it's on-line store November 10th. To celebrate, Ki is having a great give-away! Since she is so busy getting the web site up, she's asked me if I'd manage it.

One of the products that Ki will be offering in her on-line store, are wonderful hand embellished vintage Messenger Bags.

I just fell in love when I saw Ki carrying one of these bags at the Junk Bonanza.

They are made from military messenger bags, and embellished with fabric from vintage aprons, and other misc vintage trinkets. And made exclusively for Junk Revolution. (by Ki's sister)

And guess what the prize will be? You guessed it. One of these wonderful bags.
Actually you will win the bag pictured below.

What do you have to do? It's really easy.
Simply respond to this post. The winner of the messenger bag will be chosen at random on November 10th. But wait there's more. If you post on your blog about the contest, and/or add the button below, you will be entered twice and double your chance of winning. So spread the word, and best of luck to all of you.

To add the button, simply copy and paste the text below to your side bar.






If you are going to be talking about this give-away on your blog, be sure to let me know so I can check it out and add your name again, to the drawing.

Stay tuned for more info about Junk Revolution's message boards. Coming Soon!

Official rules: To be entered to win the bag pictured, simply respond to this blog post with a comment. To be entered again, you will need to notify me, with a comment to this blog post, that you will be talking about this contest, or adding the promotional button to your side bar.
Only 1 winner will be chosen at random on November 10th at 8:00pm. The winner will be announced and notified at that time.

dwdwiltondesign said...

I must confess that I entered to win the lovely bag!

BUT, I love this junk revolution! I have been picking through the garbage since I was a kid, rebuilding things, redecorating and refinishing stuff, which lead me to carpentry school to learn how to rebuild things properly.

To this day a go absolutely crazy when I walk by people’s trash and see all the potential going into a landfill. I can't bring it all back home, but I can try!

Thanks for the opportunity to share!
