Trinket Giveaway 2016 Flops

Trinket Giveaway from Estate Trinkets & Treasures Ends

Trinket Giveaway sounded good at the time. Why not give away little thingamabobs collected through the years that I no longer treasure to fellow collectors who visit our website?

So, in 2016, I held a monthly drawing. It was fun for the first nine months mailing away little treasures, but the idea fizzled in October.

After not receiving one entry for the giveaway vintage, mushroom-and-mouse napkin holder after running a drawing I extended three months, I ended the drawings in Dec. 2016.

Read all about the successful, premier eight months of giveaways at our companion website that celebrates antiques and collectors, Estate Trinkets & Treasures.
