giveaway: DB Clay wallet

The people at DB Clay gave me a Version 3 wallet to give away! I hope you don’t mind if I had a little look at it, it’s excellently manufactured. DB Clay makes limited edition wallets out of a material they call Tope: “Tope is strong. Tope is durable. Tope is heat and cold resistant. Tope is smooth textured. Tope is water resistant. Tope is robust. Tope is eco friendly.” The material feels great, and I bet if they sold it by the yard Etsy makers all over the world would buy it like crazy.

DB Clay’s designs are awesome, I’m going through a pattern phase, and I’m enamoured of their Ms. Frey patterns, which come in a few different colors. And the Lights of Spain is cool.

The wallet I have to give away is the Faith on Juniper. “We found a stained & polished wood box at a thrift store in SE Portland years ago. We transferred the old box’s rich & textured image onto this new piece of pocket art.” I think it also looks like a vintage tie, a cool vintage tie. It has a pocket for bills, four card pockets, and two spaces for you to tuck cards into behind the card pockets (you know, the places where small receipts and the fortunes from cookies end up). The wallet is excellent, and you want it. Leave a comment here and the trusty Random Number Generator will pick a winner.

Fine print:
I’ll choose the winner on Thursday night, Feb. 28th at 8:00 p.m. PST. The Random Number Generator has chosen a winner, thanks to everybody for entering! I’ll ship the wallet as soon as I can, this might depend on working off-hours postal machines.
– You don’t need to leave your real name, but do leave a valid email address. I’ll be the only one who can see your email address (just don’t put it in the actual comment box as well). I’ll write to get a shipping address when you’ve won.
– If you have never left a comment here before I’ll need to approve it before it publishes so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t show up right away. That said, you might not end up being the comment number you see so know that if you want to say “lucky number 351!” you might not be comment number 351. I don’t know why it works that way, and I’m sorry, there is very little certainty left in this world and this isn’t helping any.
– If I have not heard from an initial winner by March 6th I will choose another winner.
– The winner will be picked by the cold, unfeeling random number generator.

    I love DB Clay and I’ve followed them for a couple of years when they made only a handfull of wallet designs from gaffers tape. I still think they’re brilliant, and the wood grain on this particular wallet is Excellent! I also LOVE their line of wallets where each one is unique and handmade. DB Clay is where I am going to go the next time I need a new wallet.

    Arg, I thought I commented this afternoon, but my internet has been a mean, spiteful creature lately. I should double check everything.

    Well anyway, I love this site, and appreciate your witty, fun to read posts!
