12 Days of Indie Holiday Shopping 2009 – Drika.B



The time has come for the last day of the 12 days of Indie Holiday Shopping. I hope you have had fun learning about some new indie shops as well as entering all the giveaways.  About those giveaways, I’ve chosen about half the winners already and will notify the others over this weekend. Once I hear back from all the winners,  I will share them on Indie Fixx. Make sure to check your email this weekend though, folks.  Now let’s find out about the last 12 Days shop.

You all may remember me featuring drika.b a couple of times before. I’ve long been enamored with their colorful, hip and practical handbags and pouches. The designs are totally unique and I just love the striking fabric choices & combinations. I’m pretty sure that you would have some happy giftees if you gifted some drika.b goodies.  I’m trying to work out how I can get Mr. Indie Fixx to put one under our tree for me!

Learn how you can win a drika.b $71 gift certificate below, which you can use to purchase gifts or selfishly keep for yourself—that would be my choice. 😉

To win: To win, leave a comment below with your drika.b favorites for yourself and your giftees. 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. This contest ends December 13th at 11:59 pm EST.
