Shop News...Hand Recovery Sale AND Give-Away!!

Since my accident and necessary hand surgery last November I have obviously been unable to sew or create any new items for my Etsy shop, The Sparkling Cocktail. Well, four months later and I am STILL in recovery! I had no idea my recovery would take this long! Wow, the hand and is very complicated which is what makes it so useful.
So I don't just sit around feeling sorry for myself, I want to turn my mis-fortune into a gift for you! I have marked down all of the items in my shop 60%!! This is a HUGE sale and will hopefully benefit any of you craving a little more glamour in your life at affordable prices! This sale will last until I can restock my shop with new designs. But don't wait around, many of the items are the last ones available!

I also want to to reward my lovely blog readers and followers by hosting a give-away! Here are the details:
*The Prize- An item from The Sparkling Cocktail of YOUR CHOICE!
(pay attention to sizes available and have a backup choice in case your first choice sells within the time of this contest)
* Contest ends Midnight NY time this Saturday 3/13/10.
*Winner will be announced Sunday 3/14/10!
*I will ship worldwide!
Here's how to enter:
*Leave a comment in this post stating your favorite The Sparkling Cocktail item. Be sure to visit the shop to see all of the styles. There are more than what is pictured here!
*For a second entry- follow me on http://twitter.com/BobbinBombshell. Leave an additional comment with your twitter handle so I can follow you back if I'm not already following you. If you already follow me just leave a comment saying so.

Fabulous Finds Gal said...

Wow!! Your items, models, backgrounds and photography are mind blowing. I love them all, but the pale lace top is really a show stopper!

My favorite Sparkling Cocktail piece is the "Black Silk Charmeuse Keyhole top with gold metallic stripe chiffon flutter sleeves". Thanks for this opportunity:))

Treacle said...

Ooh! Great giveaway!

My favorite item is the Pale Peach Lace Tie Front blouse, but since that's not in my size, I'll choose the Black Silk Charmeuse Keyhole Top w/ Fulutter Sleeves.

I just wanted to wish you luck recovering from your surgery. I'm dealing with a temporary hand injury (ulnar neuropathy--they are serious when they say you need to move around an airplane!) for the past two weeks. Its slowly recovering, but not nearly as bad as yours and I know how difficult and frustrating its been for me, so my warm fuzzies go out to you!

NoirGirl said...

Wow thank you so much for this giveaway! Your designs are beautiful. Your photography really is amazing, too!

It's a tough choice, but my favorite piece is the Silver and Chocolate Silk Charmeuse Raglan Dress in XS. It reminds me of Jennifer Jones' dresses in Love is a Many Splendored Thing.

My second choice would be the Black Silk Charmeuse Keyhole Top in XS. It's so 1930's!

Thank you so much and I hope your recovery is going well for you! :D
