Sponsor Profile & Giveaway - Fawn & Fox

Emma has a pair of Gumboots that she is totally in love with. They are red and easy to put on all by herself, and on rainy days, she wears them out into the front courtyard where she splashes about in our one small puddle. When she opened the box of Bergstein Gumboots from Fawn & Fox, her eyes lit up, and for days she insisted on wearing them to bed (of course I didn't let her). I'm sure when she grows up she will remember her beautiful red boots. They are pretty special...
After encountering these classic Dutch boots in Europe, Sally from Fawn & Fox loved them so much that she became the exclusive Australian distributor for them. Now Fawn & Fox has expanded to include a homewares range from San Fransisco and a beautiful children's' knitwear range from Denmark.

I must say that Sally has immaculate taste and an eye for quality, everything stocked by Fawn & Fox has such a timeless feel.

I recently popped in to visit Sally at one of her market events so I could have a look and feel of the newly launched knitwear ranges. Wow, I can't begin to describe how soft the yarn is. Both the Mormor and Esensia labels are made from Alpaca or alpaca blends and really feel like silk, warm and light at the same time. I fell in love with the beautiful ribbed Mormor leggings which are actually knit by grandmothers in Denmark (Mormor means grandmother in Danish). I imagine these pieces will not only be passed onto siblings, but onto the next generation as well. (Just make sure the hubby doesn't throw them in the dryer!)

Now for the super exciting bit. Sally has been so generous and offered me this gorgeous Esencia Ribbed Jumper to Giveaway to one lucky reader. (pictured below available in sz 1-6)This prize is valued at $140 and is really stunning.

All you have to do to be in the running is pop over to the Fawn & Fox website and then leave a comment here telling me what you like the best from their shop, as well as a few words about what reminds you of a happy time in your childhood. It can be as simple as a pair of red gumboots.

Just one entry per person please, we want every one to have an equal chance. Sally and I will pick our favorite answer from all the comments.

Thank you Fawn & Fox for being such a great sponsor, as a way to say thanks, be sure to tell your friends about this great Melbourne based company, and pop over and like their facebook page too.

The fine print: competition closes Tuesday 2nd August 7pm EST. Winner will be chosen by a judging panel (Sally and I - not randomly) and announced on the blog on August 3rd. Winner will also be notified via email so please make sure you have e-mail enabled on your comments or leave an e-mail address in your comment (entries with no e-mail contact will be void). Giveaway is open to Australian residents only. Even though we'd love you to become a 'Liker' of our facebook page, entry is NOT conditional on becoming a 'liker' of the My Poppet or Fawn & Fox Facebook business pages. This giveaway is not affiliated with facebook in any way.
