Enter to win a $50.00 store credit from St. Augustine Vintage

Last month I had the great pleasure of receiving a beautiful vintage floral needlework handbag to review from etsy seller St. Augustine Vintage, which was featured in this outfit post. Today I'm thoroughly delighted to give one lucky winner the chance to bring home something of their own from this wonderful etsy shop.

One of the things that I love about working with a diverse range of sponsors from around the world is that I nearly always learn at least one new thing from each of them, and in this case, it just happens to be the fact that St. Augustine Florida, the town for which this vintage shop is named, is the oldest in America to have been settled (and continually inhabited by) Europeans, with roots stretching all the way back to 1565. If that isn't worth naming a vintage shop after, I don't know what is!

In this hand curated, charming fun etsy shop, one encounters a broad range of inviting items from various decades past. How broad a selection you may be asking? Well, at the time of writing, a very respectable 481, to be exact. In that wide mix one finds everything from delightful home decor pieces (many of which instantly gave me flashbacks, in the best kind of way, to my grandparents' house when I was growing up) to yesteryear craft supplies, classic jewelry (and watches) to oodles of vintage clothing, accessories (including sunglasses), and shoes.

From top left to bottom right: Coats & Clark's vintage 1950s bulky knits pattern book, Beaded vintage cherry coin purse, 1950s Decca record album with 15, 45 rmp records; Set of four vintage tiki napkins}

Spend a few minutes browsing St. Augustine's listings and you'll quickly find yourself feeling like you've popped into one of your favourite, well stocked, reasonably priced thrift stores (with the added convenience of being able to do so in your comfy flannel pajamas at 11pm on a chilly winter's eve, if your heart desires).

The very lovely Kara, a professional writer by trade with a passion for selling vintage as well, who runs St. Augustine Vintage is generously giving one Chronically Vintage reader the chance to win a $50.00 US store credit to her shop, which you are welcome use towards the cost of anything there that your heart desires.
