Birthday Giveaway 1---Polka Dot Market

{Oops, this is a little late! I'll be better about posting at FIVE o'clock the rest of the week. For today, it's Five Fabulous Giveaways at 5:55. To see today's Miscellany Monday post, click here or scroll down.}


I've received so many sweet comments about the adorable pink polka dot party hat that Gillian Grace wore for her first birthday, I immediately contacted Sally, the owner of Polka Dot Market, to see if she would be interested in teaming up for a giveaway!

Being the fabulously generous entrepreneur that she is, she kindly obliged this slightly persistent Southerner, making my day!

Now before I go on and share all the ins and outs of the giveaway, first allow me to share a bit about this fantastic company.

And no skipping ahead to the details---There may be a quiz later!

{After a search for polka dot themed birthday accessories, Google directed me towards Polka Dot Market. Kudos, Google! Polka Dot Market is the best {and only} place you'll need to find everything for your polka dot party! However, it was not their wide selection of polka dot merchandise that impressed me the most, but rather their attention to detail and customer service.

After placing my order online, I immediately thought of a few questions. I completed an online form and in less than an hour I had my reply. Not only were my questions answered, but it was Sally, the owner, that actually sent the message response. Several days later, my order arrived. Each product was individually tissue-wrapped and it was apparent that each item had been packed one at a time. Even though I knew what was inside, it was still fun unwrapping all the products from their tissue paper gift wrap!

Polka Dot Market, a small, Christian home-based business, is located in Birmingham, Alabama. Before becoming the owner of Polka Dot Market, Sally was a teacher and March of Dimes coordinator. But it was being a stay-at-home mom that she considers among her favorite careers. She is the mother of two girls and a preacher's daughter with four sisters! Sally has lived many places including Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas, and attended college in North Carolina.

Now on to the nitty gritty---The Giveaway Scoop!

Sally is kindly offering one lucky Webbisodes reader, a first birthday party hat {for boy OR girl} and 10 polka dot balloons in your choice of colors. Is this great or what?!

Wow, that is a cool site! It is hard to pick just one item that catches my eye. The birthday hat is just precious and would be perfect for our daughter's upcoming 1st birthday! The lunch box is so cute and will definitely be a good item for when she is older. We also liked the monogrammed bloomers and the 1st birthday napkins....very cute and colorful! It sounds like the owner of the site really gives back and is very talented! :-)

No.more.muda@gmail.com said...

We are going to add that site to our daughter's website. :-)
