Goody Goody Gumdrops! It's A Rainy Day Giveaway

You might have noticed that it has been raining a lot in Vancouver a lot over the last couple of weeks. There are large deep puddles all around and a constant spritzing of wet whenever I go outside.

Instead of being all gloomy about the current weather I decided to embrace the rain and host a fabulous giveaway from Gumdrops, a hip rain gear shop in Vancouver. Click HERE to go check out their website.

Gumdrops is gifting one of my readers with a $25.00 gift card to their shop. All my blog readers are invited to enter to win. To enter just leave a comment on this blog post. One comment per person. Contest starts tonight, Monday November 23rd. The winner will be drawn on Friday evening November 27th by a random number generator.

I'm so excited to hear what the winner chooses from their shop. I have my eye on these cute cherry boots and umbrella for a sweet girl.

This little blue duck umbrella would be perfect for my 2 year old nephew. I can already see him having a fun time hiding beneath the duck and walking along in the rain.

On the wet coast one of these umbrellas would be a wonderful day brightner!

I'm in! I must also note that my daughter's lady bug umbrella is a good alternative for those days when I forget my grown up umbrella en route to an important meeting at work. Ice breaker. Really.

andrea, living in the sunshine state we don't have much need for too much raingear, but those pictures you posted are so tempting, i also love the one of my beautiful grandson,he looks so pensive in that picture in the tub, he's saying "i wish mum were here",(notice the long eyelashes he inherited from his dad). LOve, Fla. MOM

I just love raingear. It is a must in beautiful B.C.! I know many times I have come in to the city and have bought an umbrella just to enjoy the day downtown. My daughter had the cutest raincoat with apples on it as a toddler and I'm sad she's outgrown it! Time for some new stuff. Andrea, I'm very impressed by your ability to sip a cappucino while pushing a stroller, that's something I was never able to do!

Allison would love the rainboots for sure. We do get rain here sometimes in Kamloops - enough to warrant her mommy getting some loot for her. Hopefully you guys get some nice sun soon. I know the rain can get a bit much at times.
Love Lesley

Oh man, I would LOVE a new pair of boots! Since moving from Vancouver, I haven't yet bought myself a good pair of rainboots, and my runners just don't cut it!

Now the very blustery night turned into a very rainy night. And Pooh kept his lonely vigil, hour after hour, after hour - until at last, Pooh fell fast asleep - and began to dream. ...Dream of pretty umbrellas and boots to keep him dry. Splish Splosh My Mary Poppins umbrella was stolen from outside my door so I'm in desperate need:)Contest couldn't be better timed.

Those are so cute! I've been on the hunt for the perfect umbrella for my little girl. One of her favorite books right now is about a little girl who wants only umbrellas for her birthday...Bethany thinks it's amazing!

Thanks for the link, and the contest!

Definitely would love to trade in my black umbrella for one of these West Coast brighteners, or outfit any of 4 little grandsons with fun umbrellas for when they come to visit Grampa and Gramma!
