GIVEAWAY John Met Betty HAITI RELIEF Coin Purse CLOSED

AND THE WINNER IS EMBER! Chosen by random.org!

A couple weeks ago when I saw that Jillian of John Met Betty was offering 50% of her proceeds from this little goodie to the Red Cross for Haiti Relief- I gobbled it up because I knew someone out there would just love to win it!

Jillian makes totally unique and adorable purses, accessories and apparel from a mix of new & vintage materials.

Even her shop name has an wonderful little story. Jillian named her company John Met Betty shortly after her grandmother Betty passed from Alzheimer's disease. She really wanted to honor her in some way. Her grandparents both had an impeccable sense for fashion and her grandfather John still does, at 86 years old!

Jillian has closed up shop for a bit, but you can still get one of her amazing little purses here!

WHAT YOU GET:

One lucky winner will receive John Met Betty's adorable coin purse.





HOW TO WIN:

This one is easy peasy- just leave a comment below with your contact info!

It's adorable!! Recently I sewed myself a purse (for the first time ever!!!) and if I don't win, I have found my next project: a coin purse!
I love the combination of the colors and the patterns in both the fabric and the buttons! :P
