Online Shop Launch and Giveaway Celebration or O' S.L.A.G.

Well folks - the day has finally come - I've got on the launch pad, done the count down and now hit the button! I have an online shop! It needs filling up ... but that will come over the next few days. To celebrate I thought I would have my first giveaway. It has been so encouraging and plain old awesome to be part of such a supportive and rather amusing online community - that I thought I would share the love.

I am giving away this wee green apron AND also one of my little sun bonnets. The apron is reversable with a lovely mushroom brown on the back - unisex! It will fit size 1-3 and can also be worn as a tunic over jeans. The sun bonnet never really photographs that well - but I tell you they are cool. Keeps the sun off and looks very funky. 100% cotton with vintage covered button detail. Fits from size 1 up - depending on noggin size. It has ribbon ties - but Edie wears hers without - the elastic at the back keeps it on! The winner will get both! Open to anyone in Australia or on the globe.
'What do I have to do?' I hear you shout ... check out my shop on the side bar and then come back here and leave a comment - go on. I don't care if you are one of my mates. I don't care if this is your first time here. I don't care if you don't have children - give them to a friend - I don't care if you are feeling shy ...it is time to reveal yourself! Plus ... It will make my day if you leave a comment and then Edie and I will have lots of names to cut out and put in a hat. Think of the children!
Late edit: will draw aforementioned prize this Sunday at 7.00pm (ish)

BIG congrats on the online store launch (otherwise known as B.C.O.T.O.S.L.). Can't wait to see the orders come flooding in. Am available for cutting out (don't ask me to sew!) and will happily volunteer hubby for tag sewing duties!
Yay!

Ok I felt sorry for you and put my name in so you could add it to the hat. Truly if those hats look better in real life than they do in the photos they must be especially cute. I know a brand new bubba who would love that in about a years time so i think the bonnets are my favourite along with everything else.

Well, there's a contest I never thought I would enter: The O'Slag Giveaway!!! Your new shop looks lovely and all the clickiness works!! Good luck, hope it 'takes off'!!!

CurlyPops said...

The bonnets are definitely my fave because they remind me of watching Little House on a Prairie back in the 70's. All I ever wanted to be was Laura Ingalls.
I know a little girl who turns 3 in May who would love these!

Just how gorgeous is Edie? My oh my, she's set to be a real heartbreaker, she is beautiful.

Great giveaway! How exciting!

Bek said...

Great giveaway! And congrats on your new online shop! I like the winter dress. I love the name Edie too. Suits such a cute little face.

Hoppo Bumpo said...

Congratulations on getting your shop up and running - your stuff is really beautiful. I wish I could dress my boys in dresses and bonnets :)

Lulu said...

Good luck with your shop venture, and you have a perfect model.

Oh, me too! Well done Gemma. The shop looks great all the photos come up really well against that background. Makes me want to get a BIg Cartel Shop - once again my desires are too big for my capabilities! Will call you asap.

JasperBoy said...

I love your Blythe dresses.

Best of luck with your new endevour, may you enjoy many happy sales.

If I am the "winner" I'd like to gift your goodies to Black Eyed Susie's, Chloe. Thanks!

Hi Jen
Thanks for entering my giveaway - I will definately pass on the goods to Chloe if your name comes out of the hat! Gemma:)

kelly said...

It all looks great, adorable clothes- well done. As an old Taswegian myself, I always LOVE finding Tassie girls blogging and crafting! I'm home sick once again...:)

Loz and Dinny said...

Thanks Kelly :) Can see why you are homesick - as a fairly recent arrival to Tassie I am sold! Good luck in the draw.

Tania said...

How did I possibly miss an opportunity like this? I think the tomatoes distracted me. I know a little kid who would be mighty chuffed. Congratulations on the launch of your shop!

Kylie said...

Congrats on your online shop!! Don't laugh, but I don't really know much about how big cartel works. I assume it's sort of like Etsy and Madeit?? Even so, I think you'll do brilliantly. Those Blythe dresses are just divine. I particularly like the navy one. Well done!!
