In keeping with the holiday gift theme this month (did you catch my kind-of-a-gift-guide last week?), I’m thrilled to share not one but TWO lovely giveaways with you all. Though be warned: if you win you “may” just want to keep these for yourself (no judging).
Mermade is the creation of Meredith Siegel – who is as warm and funny as she is creative and super-talented. She’s whipped up a fun collection of handbags and clutches that are handmade, well-priced and simply adorable.
Meredith works mostly in burlap (black or natural) and denim, with trim options ranging from lace to suede fringe to velvet and more. And the insides are given just as much love – all bags are fully lined with a same-yet-different material.
Mermade bags come in various sizes too – from “bag-in-a-bag” (remember these?) type pouches, to clutches, to cross-bodies. They are the perfect “one size fits all” gift for teachers, babysitters, co-workers – you name it.
Or maybe you’ll win this cutie, which Mermade is giving away to one of my lucky readers!
It’s Mermade’s classic burlap body, trimmed with deep purple pom-poms and lined with a fun medallion-print fabric. Size is 9 1/4″ x 6 3/4″.
To enter, leave a comment here telling me your favorite “perfect for anyone” holiday gift (be sure to include your e-mail address if it’s not already linked to your comment).
The giveaway is open through Friday, December 12th at 5 p.m. EST. The winner will be chosen at random, and announced on Saturday, December 13th. Update: Stephanie is the lucky winner! Thanks for participating!
As no two bags are alike, I encourage you to take a look at Mermade’s Instagram account, where you can see all of the possibilities – and you can contact Meredith directly about a special request too (Mermadebrooklyn at gmail dot com)!
Good luck and happy shopping!
Note: I was not compensated for this post. Mermade Brooklyn kindly sent me a bag to give away; all comments and opinions expressed here are – as always – completely my own.
