Seat Belt Tote
Message from à la mode: I started my business, à la mode, in 2005 shortly after we moved to RI for my husband's residency. I found it very difficult to work an office job and manage our home and two boys with a neurosurgery resident. So, we decided I'd stay home full time. Once we were settled, I began my business so that I could dictate my own schedule.

à la mode features features unique stuff with urban appeal: modern handbags, home decor, jewelry, and more. All items are handmade, with an urban aesthetic, utilizing innovative materials and eco-friendly resources.

My website: www.alamodestuff.com
My blog: www.alamodestuffBLOG.com

industrial + upcycled + innovative + fashion + function

Winner will get the following:
A mini version of the popular seat belt tote, this handbag is industrial chic. Winner gets choice of red, black, or gunmetal grey.

Seatbelts are woven to provide beautiful texture to this sophisticated yet durable handbag. The seatbelts are new, post production quality (somehow deemed unusable for the auto industry). Saved from the landfill, they've found new life and usefulness in this great bag. This bag is the perfect size for a night out or errands around town.

details: woven seatbelt webbing, magnetic closure, fully lined with interior slip pocket, nickel purse feet

dimensions: 10"w x 6 1/4"h x 4"
value: $58.00

Taking on Twitter Book
We have a hot-off-the-press book from our very own Kathi Browne at www.wingspouse.com

Winner will get the following:
Autographed copy of Kathi's book. This quick reference handbook provides a small business owner or entrepreneur with a menu of social media strategies to market a business. It is the first handbook to address Twitter's brand new screens and features, and a chapter is devoted to comparing old and new versions of Twitter. This guide is specifically designed to quickly get a person on their way to effectively and affordably using Twitter.

To make this book easy to skim and refer to, key points are bolded, strategies are clearly explained, and key words are indexed for quick look-up. This guide also explains the strengths and weaknesses of some of the most popular third party applications, focusing on the most affordable options to get the most out of Twitter.


To enter, leave a comment on this post, only one per person. In your comment, let me know your first three choices (in order) if you were to win. Please also make sure to leave an email or some way for me to contact you. Ends at midnight Eastern Time on November 19, 2010. Thanks!
