800th Post, Anniversary Give Away


The only thing wrong with this purse is...
 ...it should say No. 52!



But I guess that's a matter of opinion!
:)
Anyway I love the look of this bag.
I bought it at Pretty Funny Vintage over a year ago.

The only problem is...
I don't use it!

I 've been using the same little, leather, cross body strap bag
 that I bought on sale at Anthro 4 years ago.

I use this same little purse every single day!
(so boring)
  I no longer switch out with my other purses.
I guess it's because I am not going to the office any longer
 and my little Anthro purse is a hands free wonder with a nifty
  pocket for my point and shoot camera and cell phone.
And, I'm lazy.
It goes well with my jeans and sweater uniform.
It's small and light and the perfect bag to take to flea markets.
And, I'm lazy.


So this very cool bag sits in my closet unused.

What does this have to do with you?
What does this have to do with my 800th post?
...or the fact that tomorrow is the happy anniversary
 of the wedding of Mr. Flea and me?

Well, 
Here is my idea.

To celebrate 800 posts
and Mr. Flea and me...


I will fill this awesome Vagabond purse with vintage treasures
 and send it to one random and very lucky winner!

You may ask, "what will she put inside?"

The answer is ... it depends on who the winner is.
If she likes vintage sewing things or art supplies
 or ephemera or...well, you get the idea!

I will search through my vintage treasures
 and tailor the contents to the winner's interests.

What do you think?

If you would like a chance to win this purse, filled to the brim
 with, well...stuff from my stash of vintage goodness...
just leave a quick comment on this post.
Let me know what your vintage loves are!

As always...you don't have to be a follower to enter ...


But, if you are...you get two chances.
For three chances...spread the word.

This Give Back is open to everyone...
no matter where in the world you live!

The winner will be picked at 10 pm (New York time)
on Friday, January 13th.

Yes, that's Friday the 13th!
Will that be your lucky day?

Thank you to everyone who stops by...
Thank you to all those who follow along...
 and to all those who take the time to leave
 comments and kind words.
 I truly appreciate you letting me know
 you are out there!

  Hope you are having as much fun
 here at 52 FLEA as I am!
:)  
THIS GIVE-BACK HAS ENDED!
BUT DON'T DESPAIR
THE 3RD BLOGVERSARY OF 52 FLEA
IS COMING UP SOON !!
February 15th !!

I absolutely LOVE that bag and would be thrilled to own it (it really is to die for) and as if that bag weren't enough, you want to tuck some more goodies inside? Well if I were the lucky one who wins, I would be so happy to find some vintage ephemera, lace, buttons or a bit of old jewels to create with inside.

Okay now...I pretty much NEVER enter giveaways... AND, I used to sell that purse myself in my shop...BUT just like the cobbler's shoes are always in need of repair, this shop owner didn't snag one of those purses before they were gone. :)

So, YOURS is a giveaway I want to enter!! :)

Hugs to you, Laura -- whomever the winner may be. :)

Hi Laura,
Happy Anniversary Friend! 800? Wow! That's something
else. Congrats to you for your devotion and creativity.
I have never told you. When I was looking to pick a name
for my Blog it was going to be 52 Flea. The Flea by my
home was named: 52 Flea many years ago, when they first
opened. I started my Blog in 2009. When researching
a name through Google it was taken. Small world.. 52
Flea. Small world. I think it was meant to be that
we have met on here :) Here's to 800 more sweet posts!
Yes, I likey the bag.
Have a great week,
xxx Liz

Carol said...

Thank you so very much for sharing your adventures with me through your lovely blog. We've made plans to visit Ivoryton this May when we come to Brimfield. I purchased a handbag from a lady in the May's field in Brimfield for my daughter for Christmas, when she opened it, she was so surprised, and wanted to send a note to the vendor, she pulled out her business card, the company is Willow Tree in Chester, I pulled up your post and there was Willow Tree's shop. We are adding it to our list as well. We hope the weather cooperates so that we can go to the Elphant's Trunk Flea that you've written about. The weather rained it out on our last trip. One of my favorite photos was in your post about the young moose swimming near your home. Simply beautiful. I wish you and Mr. Flea a happy anniversary. It's been a joy to follow.

Smiles,

Carol

Happy Anniversary AND Happy 800th post! I'm new to blogging and 800 posts is a long way off for me. The purse is amazing! If I win it, I would carry it everywhere! 56 has been a common number my entire life, in account numbers, exits I need to take, etc. I've always noticed it. When I saw your purse, my eyes widened in recognition. If I were lucky enough to win it, I would love for it to be filled with old keys, sea shells, tiny birds, and well anything really. You have great taste and the surprise would be fun. Thank you for the opportunity! Eva

Ooooh all things vintage, if its old, even kinda crusty, I'm bound to love it. Especially ephemera, linens, jewelry (I collect the cream boxes) & anything Frenchy. I LOVE the pale aqua and pinks, but have more recently gone gaga over neutral creams and whites. I'm sure anything you stuff that tote with would be adored by lil ol' me.

Your blog is wonderful, you my dear, are far from boring. I am off to follow and spread the word.

Congratulations to you on your 800th post AND your anniversary - both lovely milestones! It's hard to choose a favorite "genre" of vintage goodness, but if you were going to fill such a uniquely gorgeous bag as this for me I would LOVE for it to be filled with vintage ephemera, sewing notions, and anything with a floral motif. :) Here's to 800 more posts, and many more wonderful years with Mr. Flea!

I am so proud of you Laura for all those 800 posts you managed to create on your blog.
Thank you for the times when you felt uninspired, the times when you were sad, the times when you were so excited to take us on your journeys and the times when you shared you lake house and showed us the special treasures you found.
I must say when I first heard about blogs you were one of the first I visited and figured out how to add to my blog roll! We have shared emails and I have visited you almost daily since! Thank you for Laura for 52 Flea*

Happiness always,
xo,
Gail

Mugwump Woolies said...

This is a favorite place of mine. I visit here often and always leave happy. The wonderful adventures and finds are one reason to visit this fun blog...but Laura herself...her sense of fun and talent is the reason I come by. Laura sent me a little something "special" not too long ago...out of the goodness of her heart...and it gave me a boost when I needed one.
The bag is wonderful...and very "special"...just like this blog...and Laura.

Leslie said...

Oh my....it was love at first sight even before I saw the striped lining! Thanks for a chance to win!

Angie said...

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Dear Laura,
What I love about giveaways is that, whenever I have won one, it is always placed somewhere in my home where I can see it everyday, and reminds me of the person who so kindly sent it to me. It is a lovely way of always being in touch with my wonderful and special blogging friends. I have sea glass and shells ( among other things) from Gigi @ The Magpie's Fancy, paper tags from Koralee @ Bluebird Notes, Postcards from Vicki @ French Essence and from Jeanne @ Collage of Life, a wooden heart with calligraphy from Ange @ Signed By Ange and other lovely things from pother bloggers ..... I love all of these treasures that have been so kindly sent to me so, for fear of sounding greedy !! a gift from you would be so precious to have in my home. That beautiful bag would hang in my lounge and used by me on my various jaunts. It looks such a good size for all of my needs and little treats for our grandson !!. Anything that you were to put in it would be an added bonus.
Thank you for such a thoughtful and gorgeous giveaway ..... I shall put it on my sidebar immediately.
Wishing you and Rob a very Happy Anniversary ..... have a special and magical day and, congratulations on 800 posts .... what an achievement. I haven't even reached 200 yet !!
Have a wonderful weekend. XXXX

Friday the 13th was always a lucky day; a favorite with my mother-in-law so maybe it will be a winner pour moi, n'est-ce pas?

I added your site to my favorites and if I should win I think I would give it to my daughter who is 52...and busy with her children...so it would be a handy, dandy size for all those days in the car taking her family to their various activities.

Favorite vintage: would love a large scrabble pieces, pillow cases, lace, napkins, tiny books, fleur de lis, eiffle tower designs on things, vintage kitchen towels, sweet children vintage pictures, etc.

Thank you for having this giveaway and blessing to whoever should be the winner.

Joyfully,
~Sylvia Faye
