Fab Freebie: The Good Ol’ Days

***This giveaway is now closed – see who won below!***

Lots of fun responses this week guys, so thanks for that entertainment! Our lucky, random winner is… Cissyrene (a child of the 80’s who believes things have been best in her lifetime fashion and style-wise). Congrats!

Our friend (and House Crashing alum) Diana recently opened up a new online shop to celebrate her favorite era of vintage furniture and accessories. She aptly named it Era Vintage and cruising through it is like a walk back in time (or a channel-surf through an episode of Mad Men). It has everything from vintage modern furniture and lighting to retro-cool dishware and knick-knacks. And one lucky lady or laddie will be getting a $200 gift card to snatch up some goodies for themselves. Plus, if you’re in the Richmond area you can catch even more flashback furnishings at a seasonal Era Vintage pop-up shop during the months of November and December at Modern Artifacts in Carytown.

  • PRIZE: $200 gift card to Era Vintage
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “ERA ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … one aspect of a previous era that you’d love to see more of these days. Would you enjoy the resurgence of certain fashions from an earlier decade? Or would you appreciate a simpler existence (before wi-fi and iPhones)? Maybe you’d just like to buy a milkshake and a newspaper for five cents?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, October 31st at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: The United States (although we try to wrangle as many international giveaways as possible)
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

Note: We aren’t paid or perked for hosting these giveaways, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQ page for more info. Pics courtesy of Era Vintage.

    ERA ME!

    Honestly, I quite like the present! I can’t wait to see what new technologies/mind-blowing inventions come out in the future.

    ERA ME! I love the simple clean lines of vintage furniture – so much furniture now days is so bulky! I’m desperately seeking a clean-lined sectional for our new house (and love yours, btw), and these accessories would compliment it perfectly!

  3. Marisa says

    ERA ME! I love the fashions and furniture design of the 50s – clean lines, pops of color, organic shapes with modern materials. I write this as I’m curled up in my started-to-save-for-when-I-first-laid-eyes-on-it Womb Chair. :)

    ERA ME!
    I’d like to see penny candies! And I’m currently obsessed with egg creams at the moment so it would be awesome to see soda fountain shops or counters in drug stores!

  5. Kelly Lynn says

    era me! I love how put together women looked in the 50’s. I don’t even know how to begin to make my hair look so polished every day!
