Winter's Moon Tinplate Toy Giveaway

Win This Vintage Tinplate Toy Racing Car (late 60's)


It all started with this vintage book, My Father and I by Kjell Ringi and Adelaide Holl:


I bought it from Winter's Moon for Miles's 4th birthday, two years ago. Since then, Becky & Julia's online shop Winter's Moon, selling vintage & handmade treasures, has gone from strength to strength.

They've worked hard, I know that for a fact, and have recently launched a brand new website (and blog) to showcase their ever-growing selection of finds. More importantly for me, Becky and Julia have become my friends, always there with tech tips and moral support when I need it, so a big thank you for that!

 Winter's Moon is chock-full of wonderful things -  textiles, furniture, lights & shades, decorative pieces for your walls, and many a tabletop gem. 


There's something for everyone at Winter's Moon, and new things are added all the time (you would be wise to join their mailing list so as not to miss anything!).
Your kids are in for a treat, in particular:


Maybe you could win one of Becky & Julia's latest finds, this fun, vintage friction  toy racing car, shown here and above?

  
Genuine unused toyshop stock dating back to the late 60's,  this tinplate toy  is in lovely  condition, and I'm sure it will put a smile on every collector's and little boy's face.

If you'd like a chance to win this vintage racing car generously offered by Winter's Moon
1) Leave me a comment below (making sure to leave me an email address)
2) Spread the news via twitter, facebook or any other means and you will get two names in the hat (make sure you let me know).

This giveaway runs until Sunday 10th of April at 6 pm, CET
I will announce the winner the same evening.

Good Luck!

 Si vous voulez une chance de gagner ce jouet vintage, une voiture de course à friction offerte par Winter's Moon, laissez-moi une commentaire. Vous avez deux chances si vous relayez l'info par twitter, facebook, ou tout autre réseau. N'oubliez pas de me laisser un email. 

Merci, et bonne chance !

  4. That car is amazing and very unusual, I don't think I have seen another one just like that at all and I have seen quite a few at USA flea markets.

  8. That's identical to my own car, right down to the little green helmet I wear when crusing the mean streets of Glasgow's Southside. I think that means I should def win.

  11. First of all- I love the store & appreciate the introduction. Thank you! I also think it's wonderful that they are so supportive & kind too. Oh yes, throw my name into the hat! That's a great car! Do I even need to say who I would give it too if I were to be so lucky? I gave the giveaway a tweet & mentioned it on FB. Great giveaway Deb! :)

  12. I get very confused about how to find enough time to devote to your amazing blog, and then you go and introduce me to other lovely places to spend time and money. This seems to be meaning that I am just sleeping less. I wonder who would be most excited about this car me, my husband or it's rightful owner my little boy.
    Ps I am a novice at all this so please forgive me for any mistakes I've made

  31. Who doesn't love a sweet 60's tin race car?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lovely car, if we won I think it would be a battle of wills between my partner (he would want to display lovely car on shelf) and youngest son (who would jump up and down saying 'car' 'car' until he could get his little fingers on it). Think the adult should win until some little fingers get bigger though.
    Fingers crossed
