Holiday Giveaway! Updated instructions

*I was informed this morning that it was not clear on how to enter the giveaway, so I am updating to clarify that, and to extend the deadline to Wednesday morning, Osan Standard Time. To enter, simply leave a comment in the comments section telling me if you are a thrift store lover or not. I will choose a winner by generating a random number, and finding the comment number that matches it. If you are unable to leave a comment, you can also enter by emailing me at storiesfromkorea@gmail.com.



Being unafraid to blatantly rip off a good idea, I am having a holiday giveaway here at Stories From Korea. A couple of blogs I read regularly, Crunchy Chicken and A Little Pregnant, are giving away great gifts right now. Crunchy has a $75 Amazon card and Julie has Joe's Jeans.

Now, my gift isn't going to be quite THAT fabulous. I'm on a budget, my friends; paintings of battling ships on stormy seas don't grown on Korean trees, you know. But, fear not: I've become quite thrifty of late, what with my laundry ball and my duffel bags of booty from the 1.39/lb store, and I have a fantastic idea for a super but not-quite-so-extravagant gift. On Monday, I will be back at the thrift store and there will be WEEKS worth of goodies I haven't seen! The gift will be a collection of the best trinkets the thrift store has to offer. And, if you're not someone who has grown to appreciate thrift store goodies, I think you are, well, sadly misguided, but this is a discrimination free zone, and there will be an alternate gift.

To enter, just leave a comment telling me if you're a thrift store lover, or not so much. Don't worry, I won't hold it against you. The winner will be chosen at random whenever I get around to it on Wednesday morning, Osan Standard Time.
