12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping 2009 – Yorktown Road


I am such a fan of Yorktown Road, the next 12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping shop. It’s hard to believe that I haven’t treated myself  to one or several of their items.  Anyway, before I make this all about me….Yorktown Road, they make the most to die for accessories & housewares from hand-dyed linens & repurposed leathers.  The colors of their linens are really superb, you must see for yourself what I’m talking about.

I don’t know who you are shopping for this holiday season (maybe yourself), but I’m pretty sure that you cannot go wrong gifting a Yorktown Road design.  The only trouble you may run into will be topping yourself next year. I’m also sure that you wouldn’t mind winning some Yorktown Road goodies.

To win: Leave a comment below with your favorite Yorktown Road designs. Multiple entries will be accepted, but you must leave a comment for each entry, i.e. if you find 3 favorites, then leave 3 separate comments. This will increase your chances for winning!

I will choose one random commenter to win a choice of 2 items up to $100. This contest ends December 2nd at 11:59 pm EST.

The entry period for this contest has ended, please stay tuned for the announcement of the winner.  




  1. pillow slip in green is begging me to sit on my couch. i like that it’s kinda curvey and not a rigid square.

  2. love the mum clutch handyed in dark pink. The color drew me to it and the pleats. Makes me wanna run my hans over the pleats. so awesome!

  3. I really want a small linen zip clutch that’s textured on both sides with numerous wavy pleats. I need it to be the perfect size to slip in my bag, after I’ve filled it with daily necessities, but it also needs to be sturdy enough to use as a small clutch. It would be a plus if it was made of hand-dyed golden yellow linen with a black zipper and lined with linen. I wouldn’t want it to be much bigger than about 3. 5/8″ x 10.5″ It would be a major plus if it was a freeform design and no patterns were used.

    OH WAIT!



  4. I really love the mum tote–it’s gorgeous and I love the re purposed leather straps as a contrast <3

  5. I also LOVE the x pleat clutch v.2. The design is so intricate but not too busy. I’d love to bring this purse along on a date or out to the bars!

  6. The caramel seam tote is another favorite of mine. I love the color and the seams make it very unique. I’d love to use this for school & every day errands!

  7. I absolutely LOVE the golden weave clutch with the zipper. The detail makes it super cute but the zipper keeps it from being overly girly!

  8. the raised line zip with strap – repurposed leather is also a great going out purse! and the strap makes it so useful and i love the long stream line shape!

  9. I love the starburst zip in repurposed leather. I love anything stylish in repurposed leather! (Really, I think it’s upcycling because most leather clothes in their original incarnations are pretty horrific.)

  10. also the clutch – starburst pleat – golden is perfect for a night out! it goes with black, brown, green, blue, etc. i love the color and it fits everything thats needed for a night out with the girls.

  11. i love the mum tote – natural (grey) it is the perfect size for every day use with an added twist of style.

  12. My second favorite is the Mum Tote- would love it in Chartreuse! Perfect with Spring just around the corner!

  13. Oh my gosh, be still my heart, I adore Yorktown Road! My favorite item of their’s (today) is … the mum clutch in dark pink. Gorgeous!

  14. This is the first time I’ve seen this shop. Their products are fabulous! My favorite item is the Starburst Clutch, Small in Repurposed Leather!

  15. I was really taken by the Pleat Pillow Slip as soon as I saw the photo in your email, and I love the color choices available. Think I’d pick the teal or chartreuse!

  16. Oh my goodness… the mum totes are incredible. Perfect for bringing my correspondence to my favorite coffee shop for a morning writing session.

  17. I think the pattern on the starburst clutch is so innovative! I’ve been lusting over this shop for a while. 🙂

  18. i love the lines and textures created from a single piece of fabric! true talent, dedication and of course patience!

  19. I also lie the little Patched Zip. I see me using it most in the summertime to put change and a couple of small items to take on the beach or to put things like keys, earrings etc. inside another larger purse.

  20. These wavy pleats just get to me. The burnt orange is so unusual that it would go with most anything. Thanks

  21. The colors are so vibrant! I love the Eggplant Zip-wavy-Pleats, I have a new sweater that will go with this! Thanks

  22. wait, i ALSO love that same mum clutch in deep eggplant purple! oh it’s so hard to choose, so i’m grateful we can submit multiple comments!

  23. oh wow, i’m glad i went back and read the rules for this giveaway, since there are so many other things that i’d LOVE LOVE LOVE… so in addition to my previous comment, i also love the mum clutch in charcoal grey.

  24. i LOVE LOVE LOVE the pleat pillow slip in that gorgeous red… it is so fantastically christmas, yet so versatile for the rest of the year! i’m also planning my wedding for 2010, so it would also be a great addition for the “lounge” area!

  25. The tote bag – the gray especially is gorgeous! I also really really like the pleated pouches – the pleating and saturated colors is beautiful.

  26. Me again… I just love these too much. All the clutches, but especially the x-pleat clutch. Oh, I’m going to have to buy one of these sometime soon!

  27. I love the twisted pleat zipper pouches! Chartreuse or Turquoise or Burnt Orange…can’t decide.
    Yorktown Road was one of my first etsy favorites.

  28. I’m a guy, and I can appreciate the clutches (ha ha), but I really do love the rich colors and intricate designs of the pleat pillow slips.

  29. Oh, I adore Yorktown Road…I’ve been eyeing the wavy clutches for a long time, and I love the golden one you’ve featured here!

  30. And the coaster squares would solve my problem of procrastinating about knitting & felting some of my own!
    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful store.

  31. Of course, the mum tote in natural would carry my knitting in style anywhere I took it. I am loving this store!

  32. And a mum tote in any color would be a nice addition to my morning commute. How much more elegant for the knitting project and book that I always travel with.

  33. I’m also really loving the x-pleat clutch. It reminds me of a harlequin pattern which I’ve always loved.

  34. Yorktown Road is a great feature! Thanks for introducing me. There’s no way I can pick just one favorite 🙂 First I’d pick the wavy pleat zipper bag in teal green. These colors really are great.

  35. Finally… wrinkles are in fashion. I’m getting rid of my iron!

    The mum tote is my fav in purple or teal. -squeals-

  36. ohhh!! im totally digging the ‘wavy pleat zip’ just cant decide which color i like the best….hmmmmmm

  37. I’m in love with those pleat pillow slips! they look like sunbursts. I’ve never heard of Yorktown Road, but it’s definitely an Etsy favorite now!

  38. I have been seeing their stuff everywhere these days and have been smitten from the begining.

    I love the pillows. Bright texture awesomeness!

  39. Oh the zip with wavy pleats is pretty too. In black or eggplant, since I am getting the Golden Mum clutch, of course.

  40. Ohhh, I love Yorktown Road!!!! I was talking to my mom about it just yesterday, and showing her the pleat pillow slip, which would look really beautiful in gray on my new sofa. 😀

    So that’s my favourite: the pleat pillow sleep in hand-dyed gray colour

    Hugs from an (always silent) reader 🙂

  41. The x pleat clutch #2 is my very favorite. I happened upon this etsy shop once before and loved all the colors! it would be great to win!
