Vintage Giveaway


I'm so excited to be doing this post!
You get the chance to meet one of my lovely sponsors...
Rebecca from Meadowview Vintage
And she has offered to do...not 1 but 2 lovely giveaways!!

Before you find out what wonderful goodies Rebecca is offering from her fab vintage shop,
let's find out a little about her and her wonderful etsy shop!



Tell us a little about yourself...

I have lived in or near the Sierra Nevada Mountain range all of my life.
Right now my husband and I live about 30 minutes from Lake Tahoe which is
perfect because I absolutely love the outdoors!

I have been an artist for many years and when I am not busy caring for my
shop I volunteer my time to two non-profit art organizations that provide
scholarships and art education to children.

I truly dig all things vintage! My parents loved to collect antiques so I
suppose that I come by my love of old things naturally. I have been re-using
and re-purposing vintage and antique items all of my life. Personally, I
like to collect pottery plus old etchings, prints and paintings and my
husband collects vintage radios. 
Our home is filled with an eclectic mix of treasures.




Why did you start your Etsy shop?


Due to the changes in the economy I was laid off from my  job in 2009 and
was having a hard time finding other work. It was then that I decided that
it was a good time to start clearing out items from my childhood home, my
grandparents estate (which has been stored away for 20 years!), and even
some of my own collections. When I discovered Etsy - everything just
clicked! I opened up my shop a year ago and have been loving selling vintage 
ever since.




How did you come up with your shop name?

The name Meadowview pays homage to my childhood home. The property sits on a
bluff overlooking a beautiful meadow.


What is your favorite item in your shop?

I love vintage fabric designs and have a real affinity for vintage scarves.
 My absolute favorites are my vintage Vera Neumann scarves.  She
was so iconic and her designs so diverse, I think that anyone who loves to
wear vintage clothing 
simply must have a vintage Vera in their collection!




Any other sites where you can be found?

facebook

twitter
Plus I have started a brand new lifestyle blog
that will be featuring vintage
housewares, home décor, fashion, and art.

Anything else you would like the readers to know?

Right now everything in my shop has been marked down 20%! I am making room
for new items. During the Holidays I will be listing rustic and primitive
goods that came from my family's Tahoe cabin along with clothing and jewelry
from the 50s, 60s, and 70s!


Thank you Rebecca for sharing your wonderful behind the scenes story!


Rebecca is offering 2 lovely giveaways from her shop...
First is this beautiful vintage relish tray valued at $30!
How gorgeous would this be on your Thanksgiving table!!



and secondly this stunning, Autumn colored vintage Vera Neumann scarf!
Beautiful!!
A $30 value.


How incredibly generous of her!
2 prizes means 2 winners!

Hi Meeling, hope you get a ton of entries in this giveaway as MountainView's vintage shop is just wonderful. I also enjoyed her blog as she has a nice sense of humor and I'm happy to report that I am now a follower of her blog.
I'm not concerned about posting each action into a separate entry as I've won a recent giveaway of yours for JAQS Studio and I love, love, love the table napkins that I won ... matter of fact I even ordered another set of them so I could have service for 8. :)

Stephanie said...

I love her shop! So many lovely retro things which I adore! I love all of serving pieces but I ADORE the one she has chosen to giveaway. I wish it was for sale so I could make sure it could become mine! :)
