Giveaway - Downtown Chic by designer couple Robert and Cortney Novogratz

A super surprise for you guys today! Just by commenting on this post - you'll be put in the drawing to win the book Downtown Chic by Robert and Cortney Novogratz of Sixx Design

I've been flipping through this book on and off all day - they give some really good advice for making your home yours, and flea market shopping tips!


This is just a little nibble of the content:

How to Flea by Robert and Cortney Novogratz
• The great stuff sells before 6 AM; get there early, before the dealers snatch up the best things
• Get a large cup of coffee - it's too early to be up on a weekend
• Negotiate. You can always walk away and go back later
• Be sure to bring the measurements of the spaces you are furnishing and a tape measure when shopping.







Contest closes Wednesday the 22nd at 5pm. Good luck!

Jessica said...

Any book that openly admits that it's too early to be up on a weekend at a flea market and advises a large cup of coffee should be a bestseller.
