Blogtoberfest Day 1, I’m starting it off with a giveaway!

Well hasn’t October rolled around quickly this year. I think I’m still getting over last October, blogging every day for a month! Anyhoo, I thought I’d kick start the festival with a giveaway. Some of you may know that I own a vintage button business,  The Button Bower,

I’ll be selling vintage buttons at the upcoming Sydney Vintage Clothing, Jewellery and Textiles show happening from 16-18th October at Canterbury Racecourse in Sydney. If you love vintage, this is THE place to go. There’s around 60 stalls of fab vintage stuff for sale. Check out the show’s website for more info:

I have a couple of  free tickets to give away, so if you live in Sydney, or you’ll be up this way please leave a comment on this post.  I’m going to draw the winners next Monday, 5th October, after 6pm, so please be sure to leave a comment by then.  There will be two winners, each will receive one free ticket.

Here’s a glimpse of the kind of things we’ll be selling:

  2. I would love a chance to win a ticket to the vintage show. I live in Bondi, and plan to visit! I spied some amazing buttons at your stall at the last vintage show and I’m kicking myself for not getting them on they day. They were shaped like bottle tops in cream, red and vintage green. I drool thinking about them. Can’t wait to see what you bring this time!

  3. Oh wow! I just stumbled along your lovely blog on a blogotoberfest treasure hunt. Sadly I’m not from Sydney, but I wanted to say ‘good luck’ everyone else, I’m green with jealousy ( I love buttons!)
