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!**
