Vintage Valentine's GIVEAWAY from Orange & Blossom!

Feb 14, 2010

You all know I am a complete sucker for anything vintage and that's why I am sooo thrilled and excited to share this fabulously heartfelt vintage contest with you today!

The incredibly sweet Lisa Marie Rovito of Orange & Blossom has generously offered up some beautifully loved items that didn't quite make the cut for her adorable vintage shop but would still be lovely for a bride's big day. As Lisa Marie said, “The right woman would really appreciate these. Especially if she is on a budget or enjoys the innate charm of something that has been loved or is crafty enough to help it along and give it new life.”

Is that not the sweetest thing? I thought it was the perfect sentiment to pass along to my dear readers on Valentine's Day!

So here's the scoop:
Check out the items below and then leave a comment on this post telling us which item you love the most and how you would include it in your big day - Also make sure to include a valid e-mail address so we will have a way of contacting you in case you win the item you mention. Entries that do not include an e-mail will not be considered. Contest ends next Sunday, Feb. 21 at midnight CST and the six lucky winners will be announced on Monday, Feb. 22. Good luck!

ONE: 1950s pearl-tipped chiffon hat in champagne/ivory-beige. Very delicate and missing some pearls. This couture flapper style would be the perfect "veil" for a modern and stylish bride looking to add a vintage flair to her day. Front to back measures 7” and side to side measures 10”.

TWO: Adorable “half hat” of off-white feathers, 1950s: Glue shows on back of clear headband but would look incredibly chic wrapped around a bridal chignon ... I'm imagining sugar plum fairies dancing already! Small plastic band measures about 11”.


THREE: Amazing daisy-beaded gloves with flare/bell beaded cuff. One thumb just needs to be stitched up where it has split along a seam. Tag says they are “double woven cotton hand woven and hand beaded in the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong.” Fits a small hand, size 7; from the middle finger to cuff is 12 ½” and the cuff measures 5” across.
 
FOUR: Whiting & Davis silver mesh clutch. Made in USA: Some wear to interior and missing a rhinestone on clasp. Lisa Marie actually has a stone that is a very close match, just a tiny bit larger than the others, but barely noticeable. She would be happy to include it in the winner's package. Measures 5 ¾ high; 7" across.

FIVE: Small white clutch with heart-shaped design: Very small, doesn’t hold much, but has a great design. Bead loss along the front edge and wear to the interior. No tag. Still sooo cute! Measures 4 ¼” high and 7 ¼" across.

SIX: White beaded clutch with tulip design: Bead loss on back and could use a cleaning to fabric, especially on back. Tag reads "Exclusively made for La Regale, Japan." Likely 1950s. Love the look! Measures 4 ¾” high and 8 ½” wide.
