Giveaway: Piccolo

Piccolo giveaway

My good friend Sara (who runs the awesome blog Brown Paper Bag) recently started a new, fun project called Piccolo, along with her friend Lisa. Originally funded on Kickstarter in January 2013, Piccolo’s purpose is to bring creative and well-made illustrated products to people in a way that is accessible, affordable, and fun. While their first collection of prints have already made their debut on a successful Kickstarter campaign, the ladies have just launched their second collection called “To Market” and it’s made up of a series of tote bags inspired by outdoor farmer’s markets, beach trips, and summer time, featuring rad illustrations from some of my favorite artists.

To celebrate the launch, we’re giving away one tote bag + one print of your choice to one lucky commenter. And the best part? It’s open for entry to everyone around the world – how cool is that?

To enter, just comment on this post letting us know which print + tote bag is your favorite combination and you might just win a set! Closing date for entries is 22nd August 2013.

**UPDATE: Thanks so much to everyone who commented – this giveaway has now officially ended, and the lucky winner is Venla Rossi!**

  5. I like Karolin Schnoor´s tote bag design (red pear) and Yelena Bryksenkova´s print design (the patterns and textures are lovely!) Greetngs from Guatemala! 🙂

  6. If I had to choose, which is pretty difficult, I’d choose the Lesley Barnes Unicorn bag and the Yelena Bryksenkova Petite Print. May have to purchase a few of the other prints too though… 😀 gorgeous stuff!

  7. This is really difficult but my favourites are Yelena Bryksenkova’s print and the tote bag designed by Jessica H.J. Lee. Thanks for this giveaway, every product here is amazing!

    I love to see what artists are up to and todays selection is so inspiring! My favs are the Pear Tote by Karolin Schnoor and the Print by Yelena Bryksenkova.

    WOW! What a scope of work these artists have!! I have bookmarked their pages to review in detail tonight. Thanks for introducing them to me. And thanks for the intro to Piccolo – small.good.things is a tag which seriously resonates with me, and I giggled at their ‘small but mighty’. Go you good things.

  12. Oh dear. I have gone from Pikaland mail, to Piccolo, to Karolin Schnoor, to Royal Doulton, to online shopping.. this could end badly.

  13. My favorite combo is ‘To Market’ tote bag and PETITE PRINT -BY- Yelena Bryksenkova.

    I love going to farmers’ market and reading alone in my room 🙂 so both artworks capture my favorite activities.

  14. I love the graphic pear tote by Karolin Schnoor and the print by Yeh Teh. They are both bold, very defined, and with a “clean” style, which I happen to like. 🙂

  15. Hi Amy
    Great competition so couldn’t resist giving it a go!
    My favourite bag is the fresh market finds one i think (although this is closely followed by the pear one) and then definitely the Yelena Bryksenkova print which is beautiful!

    Thanks for running it 🙂

  16. I love the ‘to the market’ tote by Karolin Schnoor, so simply and pretty. And the ‘petite print’ by Yelena Bryksenkova. I can’t decide whether she looks thoughtful or sad.

    My favorite tote is Jessica H. J. Lee, and the print: Yelena Bryksenkova.
    Many thanks to you and Piccolo 🙂

  28. Wow, they are all so amazing it’s difficult to choose, but if I HAD to I would pick the To Market tote bag because fishies are beautiful and yummy and I would have to choose the Yelena Bryksenkova print because it’s sweet, whimsical and I have a weakness for patterns. Fingers crossed!

  29. Cool and simple products, just the way I like them! Loved the “Petite Print” from Yelena Bryksenkova (I’m a fan of her work for quite some time!) and the “Fresh Market Finds/To Market” tote bag. *__* Hope I’m lucky enough to win them!

  30. This is such a brilliant giveaway! I really think that all of the bags and all of the prints are lovely, but I’ve been admiring Yelena Bryksenkova’s paintings for a long time, so I would have to choose that and the pear bag.

  31. My favourite tote bag is the ‘TO MARKET’ TOTE BAG -BY- JESSICA H.J. LEE and the illustration is the PETITE PRINT – BY – PAIGE VICKERS! Congrats on the idea, it’s a really good theme for totes 🙂

  32. I would love to have a TO MARKET’ TOTE BAG -BY- JESSICA H.J. LEE and the illustration PETITE PRINT -BY- YELENA BRYKSENKOVA.
