Grand Opening and our "SPARKLE AND PINK GIVEAWAY"

Hi Everyone !
I hope you like our Magazine Cover Ad...not a real magazine of course, but we thought it would be a fun way to advertise Razmataz.  Each month it will change with a new photo and features to let people know whats going on and whats new. 

 Today is our big day - the grand opening of our Online shop RAZMATAZ.  Lorraine and I have been filling our shop with all kinds of vintage treasures including Silver, Linens, Furnishings, Collectables and Salvage and New Gift items, such as our handmade soaps.  We also have custom drapery and upholstery as part of our design services.  If you live near Oakville or Burlington Ontario please come by and have tea with us at the shop. (call first or email as we are appointment only)  The plan is to have several Market days a year, when we open our doors for local buyers and the rest of the time we will be by appointment only and of course Online Shopping.  

And so...to celebrate we are holding a giveaway.  We call it our "Sparkle and Pink" giveaway because the winner will get this...
  
This gorgeous tray is the SPARKLE

AND your choice of
This set of 4 beautiful J & G Meakin Hotelware coffee cups and saucers in the best pink ever.
These are a rare find, I have never seen a set of 4 complete with saucers in this color.
OR
This set of two J & G Meakin jugs.  The big guy is a whopping 11" tall and makes a gorgeous jug for the flowers.  The little one is perfect for cream.  This is also an unusual find as these big pink pieces are just not out there.
That's the PINK
How pretty is this?

  2. Ooooh,how exciting! I have been looking forward to your first giveaway! I have been over and checked out the shop and the first option I chose was the 'Salvage' items. I guess that means I am most interested in those, however I love it all. If I could buy anything it would be the Vintage Printers Tray! If I won I would choose the jugs. Thank you for the great giveaway and congratulations on the opening of the online store! xx

  3. Just found your blog via my friend Tamarah. LOVE the salvage section on your website, wish there were other numbers to choose from!! Website looks lovely by the way and easy to navigate too. If I win I would choose the coffee cups, they are gorgeous.

  4. Chania!! This is such an exciting day for you & Lorraine! Congratulations on your store's opening my friend! The 'Magazine Cover' looks fantastic. I wish you both every success as I know how hard you have both worked to get this up and running (maybe with a little treasure hunting fun thrown in!). Your giveaway is GORGEOUS and I would love to win, but as I have already been the very lucky winner of a giveaway from you, I would ask not to be included this time round (I will still post about the giveaway though!!). Wishing everyone the very best for the giveaway draw!! I hope that both you and Lorraine have a wonderful 'Opening Day'. Sending a huge congrats hug to you both ~ Tina XX

  5. Congrats Chania...I, of course, LOVE the ironstone and would definitely love some more platters. If I won, I would definitely love that pink pitcher sitting on the table full of white tulips....gorgeous.
    Good Luck!

  7. Congratulations! I'd go for the jugs if I won, and my favourite part of the shop is the vintage farmhouse section - I'd transport everything from there straight to my dressers.

  8. Hi! Congratulations on the big day! I'm sure it will go fabulously - with your taste and wonderful items, I'm sure you will be a busy bee! I love the bedroom on the magazine - what a clever idea. Best of luck - can't wait to hear how it all went. :)

  9. Yippee!!! How exciting to have a beautiful store like yours in Ontario. Shipping from the U.S. is a killer! I love the oil painting. I'm a follower and I'd definitely pick the jugs.

  10. I love your blog and shop. We seem to share the same likes. If I was lucky enough to win, I would love to have the pink jugs. I really liked your vintage collectables section, especially the bottle collections. I love old wood frames, vintage prints, art deco anything, vintage dishes of any kind, textiles; there is not really any rhyme or reason to what catches my eye!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Everything in the shop looks lovely, but the thing I love best is the vintage printers tray and all the bottle collections and the wooden dough bowls. Old wooden and glass items basically. Gorgeous. I think I would take the jug/creamer combo over the coffee cups, although really I'd love either, but the pink wouldn't go well in my kitchen and I can use the jugs anywhere more easily! Good luck, everything looks wonderful!

  12. I love your vintage kitchen items.
    I love baking and cooking and having such beautiful items in the kitchen would entice me even more.

    I love the cups and the jugs but the cups win out.

  13. Hi Chania, First CONGRATULATIONS!!! For the "Grand Opening" and also for the FABULOUS store! I just love everything!!! I'm so happy for you and I wish I was closer to stop by for a tea and meet you and Loraine in person.
    But next time I'll go visit my family and I'll book a visit with you two!
    Well, now you really tricked us...that's so much to choose.
    I love the ironstone, the kitchen collectibles.
    Good luck with your store! It's gorgeous!
    I'll post a giveaway!
    Have a lovely day, all the success for you and Loraine, and Happy Easter!
    You guys chose the best time to start!
    Love, Li :-)

  14. Okay, as you already know it is the JUG the whole JUG and nothing but the JUG, for me.

    You guys nearly gave me a heart attack, when I saw your magazine cover. I was like hey when did they make a magazine. Am I that daft to not realize this is what they were up to. AND THEN I WAS LIKE I WANT THAT MAGAZINE. It is so beautiful....I wanted to be in that bed with all the prettiness around me. I am really computer challenged but will try to put a link to your site.
    Good luck girlies.

  25. Hi Chania...the beautiful and incredibly generous Tina from Rubies Place sent me over...so glad she did! Crumbs how to choose from all your lovely things. I'm very drawn to the croquet balls for some reason and the printer's tray and the blue bottles...but everything you have is very desirable (sorry, probably not very good for your targeted market research!). I have become a follower and if I won...would love the jugs. All the best, Kerry...another Australian!

  39. Hello Chania,

    This is such an exciting day for you & Lorraine! Congratulations on the opening of your store! Your shop is beautiful! I love the vintage kitchen items and the linens. Actually, I love it all but those are my top favorites. I am a follower and I posted about your giveaway on my blog with a link back to you.
