Sponsor Giveaway: Win a 50$ Gift Certificate to jessjamesjake!

I'm thrilled today to post about another of my March sponsors, jessjamesjake! It's kind of hilarious that after secretly eyeballing lots of the things in her shop, Jess and I finally realized that we live not far from each other at all! Since then she has been a wonderful lunch date, taking my outfit pictures when needed (stay tuned this week for another post with pictures taken by Jess), a thrifting partner, and a really wonderful supporter of my funny little blog here!

So this month, Jess and I have partnered to offer you lovely readers a 50$ gift certificate to her shop!


And then, this little guy will also find a home with the lucky winner:

Oh my goodness, look at him! I can't deal with it.

"I picked him especially for your lovely readers, assuming they also love cats and pins!! He's in overalls. Overalls! He's a copper-toned metal cat pin, circa 1960s - 70s, with a simple pin back and teeny-tiny shape. He's just over a 1/2 inch long and probably one of the cutest little kittens in town (aside from Minnow, of course). He'll ship with the winner's order, whenever she redeems her gift certificate."

To enter, visit jessjamesjake on etsy and leave a comment linking the item(s) you would choose if you won the gift certificate!

For additional entries follow Jess on...


Please leave separate comments letting us know if you do, for a total of four entries!

The giveaway will be open until Saturday night (March 31st) at midnight.
Winner will be chosen via random number generator and will be announced on April 1st.
Open to international readers as well!

Good luck everyone!

  10. Ah such wonderful things to choose from!

    Firstly I choose the 1940s locket. To think that a picture of someone's sweetheart off at war could have been in that locket is just beautiful to me.
