My favorite gift is probably the painting my sister made for me of my pet bird growing up.
and my favorite item is the 1970s disco striped dancing dress. I'd never take that thing off!

Thanks for the chance.

1. The best holiday gift received (as cheesy as it sounds) was having my entire family together because it's such a rare and difficult thing to do considering all of our schedules and locations.
2.That 1960s BERRY wool is a dandy little number

so many cute things but Im loving the DOONEY & BOURKE vintage purse most. Lets see the best holiday gift I've ever received was my first two wheel bike. It was pink with streamers and had radio that clipped onto the handle bars. It was so cool.

Stephanie said...

My favorite gift is my ipod. The portability of my music has been invaluable and keeps my going day by day. My fave item from Secret Lake is the Vintage Norwegian cardigan.

My favourite christmas present ever was from my mum! She got me a leather necklace with a Beatrix Potter style kitten clinging onto it - it really is as cute as it sounds! <3 and my coveted item is definitely the unicorn hair comb! I truly couldn't ask for anything better!

I really couldn't tell you what my best present ever was, but I think if I managed to win the gift card, I'd try to snap up the floral tapestry weekend bag. :)

1. The best holiday gift I received was when I was 13. I told my mom that I really wanted a karaoke machine, since at the time I though I could sing. As my mom started putting wrapped gifts under the tee, I saw a big one and I thought it could be the karaoke machine...unfortunately the tag had my Step Dad's name on it. When Christmas finally arrived, we were all opening gifts and it was time to open the big one. My mom told me to help my Step Dad open the gift, and as the paper started to disappear...inside was a new karaoke machine. My mom had tricked me and it turned out to be a wonderful surprise that I'll never forget.

2. I'm totally in love with the Vintage leather italian made backpack from Secret Lake Vintage. It's gorgeous!

Miss 1949 said...

The best holiday gift I have ever received is my grandfathers health improving and his heart surgery being postponed this December. As material items goes, I recieved a gorgeous reversible leopard swing(ish) coat from the owner of the bar I work at. I love that we have similar style & things in common like the fact that she bought the coat at an estate sale. Plus its just a lovely coat!

The item I covet the most would be the 1950s golden suede fur trimmed coat.


Shannon said...

1. My favorite gift was a little initial ring from another shop on etsy.

2. I love that tulip sweater!


Faye Cartmen said...

1. my favorite Christmas gift is a handmade sweater given by my mom when i was 12. it is a wonderful seafoam red acrylic sweater that is so soft and warm. my mom has spend over a month on it to make that sweater looks perfect on me. so that this sweater means a lot to me! it is so unique and you can not buy a similar one in store. favorite item from Secret Lake is "Hunter Green vintage duffle coat". i actually saw a very similar coat from other store. however, when i saw that coat, it was reserved for someone else. so when i see this amazing coat in secret lake i was so happy that finally i could have it.

My favorite gift of all time was when my best friend gave me a box full of jadeite dishes to start my collection for my first kitchen. She has impeccable taste and owned an antique store so it was perfect!
I love that red 60's coat, the collar is so great! And the grey and brown rothschild coats are also fab.

It's so hard to pick a favorite gift EVER, but most recently I loved my flipcam the most.
I am dying over the brown trotters oxfords and the 70s floral mini so perfect! I would never take them have I never seen this shop before?!


Anonymous said...

The best gift I've ever received was a set of homemade day of the week pillowcases (since I'm slightly neurotic about changing my pillowcase).

And the 1970s Hippie polka dot dress is perfect!


Michelle said...

1) I received a stuffed moose plushie when I was eight. It was definitely not the most expensive or the most thoughtful gift I've ever gotten, but I loved that moose.

2) The tulip sweater!!

Caroline said...

I love earrings and was having difficulty storing them properly, so one year my dad and my brother made a frame with some metal screening. They put a wire across the back so I could hang it - so not only is it functional it's decorative! And the fact that it was made specifically for me makes it even more special :)
From Secret Lake Vintage, I love the bohemian light brown strappy sandals! I had a similar pair from Spain that fell apart in August after a few years of love, so these would be a great replacement!
Thanks for the giveaway

MARGARET said...

1. My boyfriend took me to Disneyland... and that pretty much took the cake in terms of Christmas presents. :-)

2. I'm sort of frothing at the mouth over the woven brown oxfords. (They're my size too). !

3. Would love to receive an email from you: margeincharge(at)gmail(dot)com.

Thanks a mil for hosting this giveaway!

1. I have to pick two things for best holiday gift. One is a vegetable garden in the backyard. The other was a vintage Schwinn bicycle.

1. My favorite Christmas gift is a silver ballerina necklace my grandmother gave me when I was 9, the torso and the legs are two different pieces joined together like a chain so she can move as if she's dancing.
