“The Explorer” Handbag Giveaway

The post that many of you are waiting for is here! A while ago we mentioned (see previous post) that we would be giving away a beautiful leather handbag (named as a clue) to promote our “Next Step” secret project. Though work on the project has not yet been carried out to completion, we decided to proceed with the giveaway. The custom made “Explorer” handbag from The Kristy Bag by CG is complete and it’s time to give it away to one lucky person 🙂

“The Explorer” handbag has a retail value of $450.00.The Explorer Handbag by The Kristy Bag by CG Next Step Secret Project Giveaway Handbag Giveaway Trend setting handbag

It also has “Stitch-In-Nine” stitching on an adjustable, belted shoulder strap with beveled edges which gives the appearance of age.

The Explorer is made from American leathers and is completely made by hand (cut, punched and stitched) without the use of machines.  Do you LOVE it?

How can you win it? Folks, this giveaway is going to require a little bit of effort on your part. In order to enter our handbag giveaway, you will need to send us a postcard.

The other day, we were pleasantly surprised to receive a post card from a dear friend who is traveling through Arizona and that gave us the idea to step back in time with our entry rules.DSCN7290

Update on the “Next Step” Secret Project:

Our bulbs survived the winter planting and seem to be thriving with a little leaf-tip browning from frost . Crabtree Gardens Next Step Secret Project Sailboat Narcissus King Alfred Narcissus Allium Globemaster

The parking lot expansion gave us much topsoil which is currently being utilized near the project.  We are waiting for an important piece to be delivered and some additional construction to begin. We will post a revealing photo which will let everyone know the theme.  In the interim, we are continuing with plans to have it available for its intended purpose by the end of June. Thanks for following our journey and for your patience while we continue to grow.
