Giveaway - Sweater Clips from It's A Swindle

I am so excited to host this giveaway from one of my favorite Etsy shops, It's A Swindle!



I first featured Meg's fantastic shop on WWEPW in a post about sweater clips and since then I've collected some of her clips from her for my own collection as well as given some away to WWEPW readers as a gift. I am a huge fan of Meg's creations!

Meg has generously offered one of her beautiful and most popular sweater clips for this giveaway!

The Marilyn Sweater Clip



Description: This handmade sweater clip has gorgeous silver rhinestone buttons held together by a stand of glass pearls. Approximately 5" from clip to clip with 1" buttons. Popularized in the 1950's, sweater clips are the perfect accessory for that retro look. Clip them on each side of your sweater, or wear them as decoration on your blouse and go out in style. This sweater clip is part of my new Noir series. Inspired by classic movies.

All of Meg's items are handmade, and she will also custom design an item for you if you have a special request or idea in mind! It's A Swindle has a wide array of affordable sweater clips and other vintage and retro-inspired accessories.

How To Enter:

1. Please visit Meg's shop, It's A Swindle. Buy something, if you can!

2. Leave a comment here, telling us which of the pieces from It's A Swindle is your favorite. (I'm completely in love with her Bat Sweater Clips at the moment.)

Entries will be accepted until 6PM on Thursday, July 1

Meg is also offering a 20% discount to WWEPW readers for the duration of this giveaway! All you have to do to take advantage of this discount is enter WWEPW in the notes to seller and she will refund the difference!


You can also find Meg's vintage shop here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/hillyscloset.

Thanks, Meg, for this wonderful giveaway! Someone's cardigan will be extra Emma-fied thanks to you!

I adore the Red Flappers, and might just have to buy them whether I win (fingers crossed!!!) or not.
