The Vermont Country Store Giveaway



Something about this time of year makes me want to wear a flannel nightgown and drink percolated coffee. It may sound strange, but fall makes me nostalgic and coffee made on the stove and the feeling of soft flannel remind me of the autumn mornings of my childhood (not that I drank the coffee – it is more the memory of my mom making it; the sounds, the smells). These feelings led me on an online search for a percolator when I came across The Vermont Country Store. It was as if I fell into a time warp – this family owned and operated shop in Vermont carries very specific products for the home and family that I thought no one made anymore. It is where I found this and this — all I needed now was some freshly made coffee cake and I would be successfully transplanted back to the fall of 1976. Some further browsing led me to another memory trigger — colored aluminum drinking cups. We had the exact set when I was a kid – I knew they would make a wonderful giveaway for my readers. Thanks to The Vermont Country Store, I am able to do just that today.

Enter for a chance to win a set of 8 oz. old-fashioned aluminum tumblers from The Vermont Country Store. There are four cups in a set and you can choose bright or primary colors. One entry per person. Open to US residents only. Deadline for entry is October 21, 2013. To enter, leave your contact info in the “comments” section of this post or email me directly at camilla@family-chic.com. Be sure to check out The Vermont Country Store on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest too. Good Luck! -Camilla

These old-fashioned aluminum tumblers come in 8 & 16 oz. sizes, I chose the smaller size for this giveaway – perfect for little hands.

These are a smart alternative to plastic cups – wonderful for outdoor entertaining.

You can choose from bright or primary colors.

    This is so great! I have what’s left of our family’s set of these and still use them. They were permanently in the camping cupboard, and we always used them on vacation when I was growing up.
