THE LOADED TRUNK GIVE-AWAY

I would like to introduce you to a new website, The Loaded Trunk. Owner Roni Jaco describes their offerings as "textiles and objects with a global point of view". You will find all kinds of beautiful and unusual imports, from unique art and pieces for the home, to jewelry, scarves and textiles.

I thought this clutch was especially chic and it's made from a vintage recycled Obi sash that is worn over a kimono.


This Balinese umbrella in pink and gold was my favorite piece and at a terrific bargain price! These umbrellas come in many different color combinations and lend a refined and whimsical touch to an interior or table setting.

 You could win a gift certificate valued at $50 from the Loaded Trunk! All you have to do is browse their site, then leave a comment here on Annechovie listing your top 3 favorites, along with your email address (for contact info if you are chosen). Entries will be accepted through September 23rd and the winner will be chosen via random.org and announced by Sept. 25th.

Thanks for the giveaway, Anne, I've been over to The Loaded Trunk and I have more than 3 favourites but here are my 3....I like the Copper serving dish, the silk Ikat wrap but my absolute favourite piece is the Bali wooden cuff bracelet. XXXX

Anne this is a tremendous site for unique pieces. What a great giveaway. I was terribly fond of the soup tureen, the chedi bowls and the Mexican Ex-Votos poster-St. Jude Illumination for Obama. Difficult to pick just three!

Happy Wednesday to you ~
