Giveaway #4 - The Collectible Barbie Doll Book


I'm doing an entire week of giveaways here on the blog! If you follow the Couture Allure Facebook page, you know I've been downsizing my personal research library over the past couple of months.  Most of the vintage books are being offered for sale in my SewHallie Etsy shop, and more will be added this week.  However, there are several that I want to give away as gifts to my devoted followers here on the blog.  I know I neglected you last month, and I hope these gifts will make up for it!

The winner of yesterday's giveaway of "Radical Fashion" is an anonymous poster.

Congratulations Anonymous!  I'll be in touch by email shortly to make arrangements for shipping your book.  And thank you to everyone who entered!

Today's giveaway is the book, "The Collectible Barbie Doll, Second Edition" by Janine Fennick.  If you played with Barbie when you were younger, you'll love this nostalgic look at vintage and collectible Barbies, her friends and her clothes.

 Did you have any of these Barbies or outfits?  My sister had the red headed bubblecut Barbie.

 I had one of the original ponytail Barbies, the one in the center I think.  I wonder whatever happened to her? 

Look at these Bob Mackie Limited Editions!  This book is hardcover with the original dust jacket, published in 1999.  Near Mint condition too!

This giveaway will run for 24 hours only and the winner will be chosen at 7am Eastern Friday, February 15, 2013.  I'm not going to make you jump through hoops either.  Simply leave a comment here on the blog.  If you don't have a blogger profile, please leave your email address in your comment.  I'll choose the winner via the random number generator tomorrow morning and will contact the winner via email for shipping information.  And stay tuned for another giveaway every day this week!

Important!  If you live in the US, I will ship this book to you via Media Mail at no cost.  Unfortunately, due to the recent postal rate increases, if you live outside of the US, I must ask that you pay for the shipping, which could run anywhere from $20.00 - $29.00 depending upon where you live.  If you live outside the US and are not willing to pay the shipping, please do not enter this giveaway!
