Autumn Crisp Giveaway from ClairesFaire

 This months giveaway is coming from Arlena, CEO of ClairesFaire on Etsy.
 Arlena is currently running 3 shops on Etsy and that is no easy task. I have come to know that Arlena is a women of great integrity and strength. She is upbeat and delightful to talk to with great spirit and intuition.
Arlena and I are Vintage Market teamates on Etsy (vmteam) and she has always been a big supporter of mine, so I was so happy when she agreed to host this months give away.

I've gotta say that in the past 4 weeks I have realized that a friend is anyone who can touch you from a distance and leave a mark that will never be forgotten. And Arlena is one of those friends.


Below are the links to all her shops and they all hold different and unique treasure's for you to enjoy.











And to finish up with


Here are some words from Arlena:

For me, vintage is all about the love, the history and honoring the past.

My mother came to this country from Germany in the early 1950’s as a new bride. She brought nearly nothing with her, so the vintage I own is what she collected as a young wife and new mother in the late 50’s and 60’s. These are the things I use, the things I love. This is what brings vintage meaning to me. She passed away four years ago…what she touched, what she cooked with, are my treasures.

What I sell in ClairesFaire and ZinniasOldfangles are pieces from the more recent past, the 60s through the 80’s. These are the things I decorated with as a young wife. I love sparkle and shine and color!

I left my career in resort management 6 years ago to care for my mom full time. I decided to take a different direction in my life after she passed away. While pondering what I wanted to do, I spent time at estate sales and flea markets, adding to already extensive collections. I was so happy to find Etsy and open a shop that allowed me to share some things that make me smile, things with meaning and with a little extra sparkle and twinkle.

Thank You
Arlena
