GIVEAWAY: Enter to win a $75.00 store credit from Wise Apple Vintage


There are many important factors when it comes to being a successful online vintage seller. To my mind, undoubtedly, one of the biggest and most powerful of such is the imagery that one uses to promote and showcase their offerings with.

Clear, well lit, beautifully shot photos can not only help a shop to succeed, they can instantly create an identity for a seller or brand as well.

Over the years, I've encountered tons of different vintage sellers and their shops online and I can honestly say that few have nailed product photography as well - or as appealing - as Nikki McIntosh from USA based Wise Apple Vintage does.

Whether in her standalone shop or over on Etsy, where she also sells, Nikki crafts inviting, cleanly shot and very attractive imagescapes to highlight her mid-century offerings, which primarily include housewares, barware, collectibles, and planters.



(Just a small sampling of the more than 100 different, super fun mid-century items that Wise Apple Vintage currently has in stock. From top left to bottom right: Vintage Ceramic Dog Wall Planter | Mid-Century Modern Dansk Red Pinwheel Dish | Vintage Ceramic Mushroom Cookie Jar | Vintage Stoneware Owl Mug)


If memory serves me right, I first discovered Nikki's thriving vintage shop on Etsy several years ago (she's been there since 2008) and was instantly hooked, just as I am on her seriously terrific main e-shop.

Her prices are refreshingly reasonable, her inventory is updated frequently, she has impeccable customer care, and, indeed, her product photography is so gosh darn lovely that I feel like I'm flipping through the catalog of a major housewares chain when viewing her listings.

I've had the great pleasure of working with Nikki as a blog sponsor for quite a while now, during the course of which we've formed a wonderful online friendship as well.

Nikki (who blogs about various vintage and decor related topics here) is as sweet as her vintage offerings are appealing, and as we embrace the very last days of summer, she has generously offered one lucky Chronically Vintage reader the chance to win a $75.00 store credit to her main (not-Etsy) shop).

Read on to learn how to enter this exciting giveaway and add some of Wise Apple Vintage's stellar mid-century charm to your own home.


Giveaway Details:


This giveaway is for one $75.00 USD store credit from Wise Apple Vintage standalone website.
 
It is open to participants worldwide and will run from today's date (Monday September 19th) until 11:59 PM on Monday September 26, 2016.

The winner will be drawn using Raffle copter's tool to do with after the giveaway has wrapped up and will be contacted via email shortly thereafter.

There are thirteen different ways to enter this giveaway via Rafflecopter, the only one that is mandatory so as to gain entry is to leave a comment below on this post letting me know what one of your favourite items in Wise Apple Vintage's shop is (please note, if you win this giveaway, you are not obligated to put your prize towards that item in the slightest and are free to apply your prize to anything that you'd like in Nikki's standalone online shop).

The more ways in which you enter this giveaway, the greater your odds of winning become.

The giveaway winner may apply their $75.00 USD store credit to the cost of any item, or combined items, in Wise Apple Vintage's standalone shop. Any amount above $75.00, including shipping costs, are the responsibility of the winner and will not be covered by Wise Apple Vintage.

Thus, for the sake of example, if you opted to selected two items that, along with their shipping costs, had a grand purchase total of $78.50 USD, Wise Apple Vintage would refund $75.00 USD to you after you had made your purchase and you would pay the remaining difference of $3.50 USD out of pocket.

If you have any questions about this Wise Apple Vintage $75.00 store credit giveaway, please don't hesitate to email me.

Nikki's passion for vintage shines through in each of the beautifully curated mid-century items that she lists and in the care that she puts into photographing the products that she sells.

As a vintage consumer, blogger, and fellow seller, I really appreciate this and know that it speaks volumes to the success that Wise Apple Vintage has experienced over the years.

I'm tickled pink to be teaming up with Nikki and her fabulous shop for this giveaway and really want to thank her for the opportunity to do so, as well as to say a big thanks as well to each of you who take part in it.

Best of luck to everyone who does so!

  2. Well, Jessica -- as you might know I have a thing for coffee mugs and that owl one in Wise Apple Vintage's photo is adorable, especially as a tiny planter. Unfortunately, my green thumb skills are lacking so I would not be able to use it in that manner but I could sure enjoy a cup of tea in it! Great post, interesting contest. Thank you for the opportunity.

  6. Oh my gosh HOW TO CHOOSE?!!? Her shop is so well-curated and everything goes together so well that I'd want all of it to just completely redecorate my house!!!! I think if I was forced to choose a single item, though, I'd go with the floral espresso cups:

  45. What a fun store! I love when you introduce your readers to fun sites I have never visited before. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to save some of my outdoor balcony plants for the winter in my already super small apartment. Soooo the Vintage Copper hanging planter will do the trick nicely. :)
