Stray Needs “Forever” Home: A Vintage Giveaway

IMG_2531This sweet towel is one of the first items I listed when I opened my Etsy shop almost three years ago. You may recall that I see my shop as a sort of SPCA for unwanted linens.

Many other items have sold in the meantime but this little towel just sits and waits. I’ve begun to feel very sorry for it—it deserves a loving home. I could lower the price so it might sell but, honestly, I’d rather give it to someone who would really appreciate it than to sell it to someone who isn’t willing to spend ten dollars for it.

So, if you think this pretty towel would make a nice addition to your kitchen and would promise to love it forever, leave a comment assuring me of that. I’ll choose a random winner (assuming more than one person wants the towel!) next Sunday.

** Edited to add: If the winner lives in a country that will not allow balsam to be shipped in, as seems to be the case with New Zealand, just let me know and I’ll send the towel only!
