I found a nice little spot that sells all the cool Japanese vintage fashion magazines and thought I'd pick one up for a lucky follower of my blog.

If you are familiar with this magazine, then you know it's not too easy to come by and it's a great source for vintage clothing...and just fun to look through.

Also with this giveaway, is a leather key lanyard I hand crafted some time last year.  It is made to resemble the instep strap of Engineer Boots and is constructed of 3-4 ounce veg-tanned natural leather.   Mor info can be found here.

This is the actual lanyard for the giveaway

Here's How to Enter:

    I rarely buy Lightning. I tend to buy Free&Easy for some reason. But a new Lightning would look great on my book shelf.
