Name My Shop and Win!

I've been busy, busy sewing up some new skirts and market bags! I am preparing to sell them at our local crafts and antique market and also on etsy. Problem is, I need a catchy name for both! Here's a sampling of the goods:

Small Market Bag

Apron Ruffle Skirt Front

Apron Ruffle Skirt Back

Apron Ruffle Skirt Detail

Yellow Apron & Bow Skirt Front

Apron & Bow Skirt Back

I need to get some more items photographed when it's not raining!

All of the items I will be selling will be made from vintage fabrics, mostly sheets and hankies. Therefore, I was thinking something along the lines of The Vintage Linen Closet... but "meh"... some thing better than that. Cute, Whimsical, Vintage, Handmade are all ideas I want to express in the name.

Here's where you come in! Would you like to win a skirt like one of these, but custom made for your child, grandchild, little friend, or heck, I can even make one for YOU to wear! You pick the style (ruffle apron or bow apron) and post your clever name for my shop here! I will make one of these skirts for you in your choice of colors and size if your name is chosen! (Allow two weeks.)

It get's better!!! I will also take ALL of the comments and randomly choose one winner to receive a vintage sheet market bag! You may post one comment for each of the following:

1. submit a name idea
2. become a follower
3. post a link to this contest on your blog
4. tweet about it
5. Face Book about it

Just provide a link to the mention in your comment!

Thanks for playing and good luck!

I LOVE your aprons as much as your scrappables. . . and that is saying something! :)

The only name that came to me was "Vintage Style". Love the ruffles :-)

I already follow ;-)

Okay, so I noticed you have a lot of things with ruffles so how about something like "Retro Ruffle" or "Frill Seeker?" Maybe "Sense of Repurpose" or "Yesterdaisy?" Just what popped into my head. Good luck! I love what you've got so far!

I also love your blog design. ;)
