Giveaway and Review: Surprise Gift from Tyger Calloway!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS, DONNA W.!


Today's giveaway is sponsored by Tyger from the Etsy shop Tyger Calloway and will be a little different today: The prize will be a little bit of a surprise, and there will be only ONE entry allowed per person. The contest is open internationally!


All of the items in Tyger Calloway's shop are one-offs or limited editions, and everything is 100% handmade. For review purposes, Tyger sent me this buttery leather clutch from her shop, very similar to this one, which is listed for $90. It's awesome! It is roomy and has lots of detail, including pockets on the front, back and inside. I'm a many-pockets girl, so I love it!

The back features a large pocket. The bag is entirely well-made. The only change I would make to it would be to add a strap, but that's just "me," since I don't really do clutches. As a busy mom of three, my hands are always full, and everything goes over my shoulder!

As you can see, there is plenty of room in the clutch for all your essentials. I love the little "Tyger Calloway" label sewn in next to the smaller pocket on one side. Great branding, Tyger!


Tyger even sewed a fabric cover for the clutch, which it arrived in when it was sent to me! It is perfectly sized to fit the bag and is a nice little touch.

For right now, I have my daughters' Swirleys (remember Swirleys?) stored in the clutch, because it's the perfect size pouch to store them, and I needed something special to keep them in - but I imagine when I need a nice bag for a night out, the Swirleys will need to find a new home for the evening! ;)

So thank you for my bag, Tyger - it's wonderful!

On to the giveaway!


Here's your hint. It's an adorable shirt, and I love it! BUT, the actual prize will be different colors and completely original!

WIN IT!!

For your ONE entry, I want you to go on over to Tyger Calloway and look around at all the cool items she has listed for sale. Then come back here and comment with your favorite item in her shop. (I tell you what, it's going to be hard to decide!)

That's it!

This contest will end at 11:59 PM EST on August 5th, 2010, when a winner will be chosen at random. Please make sure I have some way to contact you: leave your email or Twitter/Ravelry/Etsy ID in your first comment, if your Blogger profile doesn't let me view your email addy. Winner must respond within 36 hours of being notified.

Open to everyone in the whole wide world, w00t!

Thank you to Tyger Calloway for sponsoring this giveaway. I was given the leather clutch for review purposes. I have not been compensated in any other way for this post. All opinions are, and will always be, my own.
Good luck.
