Downtown Susie Brown

Retro Dad... {Giveaway Wednesday!}


He lived it - you love it.  You just can't get enough of Mad Men, mod graphics, or Kate Spade.  Well, this is your lucky day!  Bring your Father's Day gift into Paper Dolls of Saratoga, pick some very cool wrapping paper and the girls from PD will give your dad's gift a very retro look.  They will wrap it up to resemble what he wore in the 60's or 70's {as seen above}.  They might be able to do the 80's but that Gordon Gekko look is not very popular today given the state of the economy... 

Today's giveaway?  A kate spade {no one says retro better than kate} all occasion gift card set {above}.  Need a birthday card?  Your covered.  An interesting thank-you for that fab dinner party you attended last week end?  It's there.  Auntie Jane is under the weather?  You have a kitchy card that will lift her spirits.

Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered to win a gift for yourself this week!!!  You deserve it.  You've been a good daughter and/or wife - right???  Winner announced on Friday!
