The first annual gift card draw

The winner of the $50 gift card is Regina Yung, who entered the draw with her purchase of the Rhonwyn earrings back in May. Read more about the sale here...

There is going to be another $50 gift card draw in one year and the only way to enter is to make a purchase at the online shop at aileen.etsy.com. Each item purchased earns one draw ticket and the gift card can be transferred to another individual of the winner's choosing. How sweet is that?
