Fab Freebie: A Literal Fab Freebie

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

You guys hit the 10,000 entry cap to giveaway within 24 hours, so you must love some Fab as much as I do (or perhaps you just like $500). Either way, we’ve crowned a random winner and it is… Whitney (who says “Most of my apartment is muted gray, yellow, and blue, but my kitchen has bright red baking dishes on display.”) Congrats Whitney!

I’m a recent addict to Fab (I own more t-shirts from there than I probably should admit). So imagine my reaction when I got an email from them offering to do a – wait for it – $500 Fab gift card giveaway for you guys. Their site includes items marked down between 10-60% from retail prices across just about every category – home, accessories, art, kitchen, pets, kids, clothing, jewelry, etc. And everything is selected with a discriminating-but-not-too-serious design eye. There’s an emphasis on quirky, weird, and colorful items within their sales… which means there’s a lot of fun to be had while spending the five hundred beans that are up for grabs.

  • PRIZE: A $500 gift card toward Fab
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “FAB ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …what’s something weird, quirky, or colorful in your home that you love? Is it a bold art print in your entryway? An armchair with a happy pattern in your living room? Or several dozen ceramic animals placed throughout your house… not that we’d know anything about that.
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, January 30th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: We always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not legally able to vend things beyond specific areas (more on that here). This giveaway is open to the United States, Canada, and much of Europe (click here for a specific list of countries)
  • 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…

    FAB ME! The first quirky thing that comes to mind is my Easter Islandy tissue box cover. I got it during one of those gift exchange games. When I opened it, I said the heck with the rules & told everyone that I wouldn’t let anyone steal it from me. I LOOOOVE it.

  2. Anne says

    FAB ME! I have this holographic dancer wall thingy, in which the dancer pirouettes as you walk by. I need to find a place to put it now.

    fab me!

    i have always wanted a deer head (not real obviously) and finally found the right one when i went to nc this summer. it’s small and mounted on a oval wood plaque. thanks to you guys i was going to paint it black or white (and to match my silhouettes) but ended up loving it natural. one of my favorite things in my house.

      The “not real” qualification is not necessarily obvious! We never had taxidermied animal heads in my house, but I definitely know people who do! (grew up in WI) Glad you like you non-real version, though. :)

    • heather says

      lol t! i guess you’re right and it’s not that obvious. as a native manhattanite I don’t think i’ve ever been to someone’s house with a real taxidermied anything. but after reading the blogess i sure would like to! lol.

    FAB ME!

    I have a charcoal drawing of a donkey which used to hang in my grandparents pool house in England. When my grandmother moved to the US three years ago, she gave me the picture. The donkey is a little sad looking (like a more realistic Eeyore), and the print itself isn’t in fantastic condition, so my husband gave me a weird look when I got so excited about it, but I smile every time I see it :)

  5. Steph says

    FAB ME! The weirdest thing in my home right now is the gingerbread house my boyfriend gave me for christmas. I can’t face to throw it away :D

  6. Lena says

    FAB ME! I have a bright green pillow with a chicken on it (from Ikea) that I’m currently obsessed with. I also may have a few ceramic animals…

  7. Haleigh says

    FAB ME! I have a deer head from Cardboard Safari that always generates the strangest looks from guests, although it seems totally normal to me!

  8. Claudia says

    Fab me!
    My favorite quirky item is a mustache clock in my sons bedroom. Nothing says “manly” like facial hair….

  9. Katie says

    FAB ME! I have this fantastic chartreuse-colored ceramic sailboat lamp that I found at a thrift store. It’s definitely weird, quirky, AND colorful!

  10. Alexandra I says

    FAB ME! My favorite thing in my house is a collection of prints and photos that hang over my bed. I got the inspiration from your hallway of frames, though mine is on a much smaller scale :)
