28 Days of Giveaways!

We’ll be the first to admit that no matter how much we love this city, the dead of winter in Ottawa can feel rather bleak and uninspiring.

This winter, Christina and I are determined to keep up our creative spirit, snow or no snow – minus 10 or minus 40.  Are you with us? Cause we have a plan!

How about an entire month of great giveaways from your favourite Canadian designers? That’s sure to put a bit of a bounce in your step en route to the office right? Sure to make your lunch hour a bit more fun?

We think it might. (-;

So, we asked our designers if any of them might be interested in giving something away and we got bombarded with emails back!  Our fab designers are all over it!

Here’s a sneak peek: We’ll be giving away a felted merino wool hat by Julie Sinden, a drape dress by Nude and pair of lovely sterling silver earrings by shop fave Jessie Turner…and that only covers 3 days of our big contest! (-:

The giveaway begins on February 1st, but now would be a good time to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to make sure you don’t miss a thing!

ENTER TO WIN these great Earrings, handmade by local designer Jasmine Virani!

Many of you ladies likely know the work of Ottawa designer Jasmine Virani (you can also find her on facebook).  Her collection is subtle and lovely, handcrafted in sterling silver, with just the right amount of accents.  If you have ever had the opportunity to meet her, you would also know that she is a about as nice and happy as you can get!  But did you know about why Jasmine is so special to us, here at Workshop and Flock?

Years and years ago (circa 2004), Christina, Jasmine and I met while selling our handcrafted goodies outdoors under those sketchy looking tents at the Byward Market.  Every morning, coffees in hand, we’d unload our stuff, set up our tables and tents and settle in for a long, hot day on the asphalt…

Needless to say, chit chat was the name of game and the three of us spent an uncountable number of hours hanging out on plastic lawn chairs and getting to know each other.

So, anyway, 8 years have gone by and Jasmine is now a celebrated local jeweller with a collection that is so unique I want every piece. And best of all, we’re giving away one of her fabulous pairs of earrings!

1. LIKE our facebook pages (if you like both Workshop and Flock you will receive 2 entries)!

2. If you already LIKE both of our pages (thanks!), then COMMENT on this post (on the blog or on facebook) and you will be entered!

Our fun contest closes Friday, March 2nd at 5pm!
