Kanorado Shop Giveaway

The kind folks (Asumi and Kuni) at Kanorado Shop, a Brooklyn-based online store that carries items they love – from their own products all made in New York and one-of-a-kind vintage items – are offering two of my readers this beautiful leather card case. I absolutely love this color of leather and it is incredibly soft to the touch. They generously gifted me one too and I love that I now don't have to burden my normal wallet with all my coffee shop loyalty cards (hah) which I would never remember to bring before. Glad to have easy access to my Metrocard as well!



To enter, please leave a comment and a way to contact you (email preferably). Apologies to my international readers that this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. I will choose two winners randomly next Monday (8/26) at 11AM.

I hope you'll check out the other goodies on their shop as well. Happy browsing!

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed. Congrats to commenters #52 and #162, Sharon and Kamile. I have emailed you for mailing address details. Thank you to everyone who entered!

  6. I've never carried a card case before, but I've recently been considering doing so, as I have a couple of smaller purses that don't fit my (rather large) wallet. I will definitely be checking out their shop, too!

  159. Trade forex, while this point is often neglected by beginners, it is impossible to overemphasize the importance of the choice of broker. That a fake or unreliable broker invalidates all the gains acquired through hard work and study is obvious. But it is equally important that your expertise level, and trading goals match the details of the offer made by the broker. What kind of client profile does the forex broker aim at reaching? Does the trading software suit your expectations? How efficient is customer service? All these must be carefully scrutinized before even beginning to consider the intricacies of trading itself. Capital One Forex through its various account levels cater to all types of traders and can give you a custom made trading deal to suite your trading needs.
