The French Basketeer Giveaway !


The French Basketeer is offering a fabulous giveaway of your choice of a woven tote that will be filled with a special gift of Wine from the Bordeux Region of France! This gift has a value of approx $100!

Andrea has a beautiful home in Beune, France and the regional wine is truly smooth and yet complex. Go to her blog site to read more about this region in France and the giveaway. This will be so much fun!

Their mission is to provide authentic French baskets, carts and totes which are practical yet stylish and to help get the word out that plastic bags are indeed, “so passé.” Our products are made from renewable resources and produced under conditions of Fair Trade and Fair Wage in France, the former French colonies of Madagascar and Morocco, and India. Basket making is almost exclusively a female industry in Madagascar, our largest supplier, which is the world’s 13th poorest country.
The Aix Classic Tote

Everyone owns several baskets of various sizes in France. It becomes a habit to have several in the car, and to not leave home for errands without one, knowing that you need a way to carry your goods home.The Marseille
Their products are made of natural fibers and can be cleaned lightly with a damp cloth, as can corners or handles made of simulated leather. Leather handles can be cleaned or softened with standard leather care products.


Dijon Rose Basket


To enter


1) be a follower of my site or become one.


2) Go to The French Basketeer and decide on which basket you would choose! The choices are amazing....then


3) Come back and leave your comment


The Winner will be announced on September 30th. Everyone is eligable. Out of US entrants pay postage for giveaway shipping.


Thank you Andrea of French Basketeer and thank you to my wonderful friends and followers!

Thank you!

Karena

Confessions of a Closet Hoarder but you can call me Judy said...

All the baskets are lovely! There's something I like about the Eze with the blue handles. I'm not sure what sets it apart from the other enough to catch my eye, but there's something about it. :) Seriously, though, they're all beautiful.

Hi Karena! I am already a follower, and have just returned from the French Basketeer. I think the Marseilles is my favorite. Here in s the San Francisco Bay Area we love to shop with reusable bags. Usually, of course, the ubiquitous Whole Foods green. I think I'd be far more apt to remember if I had this thing of beauty, to say nothing of far more chic. Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

Ms. Karena, I am now a follower of your site and I can't believe I haven't been until now! Please enter me in the French Basket drawing - I LOVE her work. It's hard to decide which one to pick. I adore the yellow one featured on the main photo of the site - so chic! The Dijon basket in the natural houndstooth design is lovely, as is the Eze basket with blue handles (perfect to take to a Kentucky Wildcats football tailgate!). Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

La Petite Gallery said...

I have bought those grocery bags to not use the Groc stores.
These are lovely bags for shopping, If I were to chose
one of the French baskets.It would be the Marseille. It is beautiful. Looks well made. I wish them luck on the lovely baskets.
They should sell them at the Grocery store.

I am a follower! I have been reading for a bit, but this gave me an extra reason to jump on board.

I fell in love with the Bandol basket immediately. I was thinking the Cannes Fuchsia might be more useful, but I just keep going back, heart a-flutter over the Bandol basket.

I love the marseile one or the dijon one (The houndstooth design).

It would be perfect for carrying my uni books :)

I was just looking at her blog today as I have been looking for the classic french market bag. The Aix Classic is my fave. I went to Paris last month, we were only there for a day and I never came across one to buy - that is the only souvenir I wanted!! They are gorgeous! Have a beautiful day. I am a follower now! :) xxoo

Fabulous giveaway! I've just added you to my google reader.

I've just spent tens of minutes looking at the French Basketeer site. The X-Large Antibes Blue with brown leather handles is luscious, and would be a gorgeous weekend bag. I can't choose between it and the Arles though. They're both perfect!

Hi Katrina!

First, this was an easy one for me. I was already feeding your blog into my reader, but now I'm following :)

But, I already knew which one I wanted. I have tried to win one of these several times, the most recent on a Cote De Texas blog :)

St. Remy all the way. Thought, coming up close second is the cannes yellow.

Thanks for visiting my blog! xo
