Enter to win a $40 gift certificate from Fairyfiligree

As I sit here in the wee morning hours of the last Sunday in July, it strikes me that it's been a good long while since Chronically Vintage last hosted a giveaway. There's no particular reason for that, though no doubt last year's Vintage 365 project and the whirlwind of activity surrounding our move earlier this year certainly factored in.

As there is no time like the present though - or for a present, come to think of it! – today I'm thrilled to be able to offer all of you the chance to win a $40.00 gift certificate to a wonderful etsy shop called Fairyfilgree that's based out of the beautiful country of Malta. 

Featuring a handpicked selection of mid-century clothing, accessories, and jewelry, Fairyfiligree was founded in 2009 a lovely lady named Marika who has a lifelong passion for vintage clothing and jewelry (as evident by her eponymously named blog, Fairyfigree).

Culling items from the sunny, gorgeous island of Malta, as well as her travels to Italy and elsewhere throughout Europe, Marika presents shoppers with a fun, fashionable mix of reasonably priced pieces that primarily hail from the 1950s through to the 80s. Many of her pieces radiate an chic, appealing Mediterranean vibe that help them standout from the etsy crowd, such as the terrific items pictured below.
