Catching Fireflies $50 Giveaway

Catching Fireflies & Rochester Elevator

When I need a gift for someone I usually go to Catching Fireflies.  It is a local store in Rochester, Michigan; but they also have a location in Ferndale and an online store.

I shop there because they have unique items at a variety of prices for their respective age groups.  And even better, they offer free gift wrapping.  There is nothing I like more, than driving away with my present already wrapped and ready to go on the seat next to me:

I thought it might be fun to give away a $50 Gift Card to Catching Fireflies to one lucky reader.  You can use the card at their online store or at one of their Rochester or Ferndale stores.  As you can see from the pictures below, it is a very fun shopping experience.  My personal favorite sections are the kitchen section and the purse/jewelry sections.

To enter to win, all you have to do is comment on this post.  On Monday, November 9th I'll use random.org to generate a random winner and the $50 Gift Card will be sent to you, just in time to buy a Christmas gift for yourself!


UPDATE 11/9/09 Contest is now closed.  We have a winner, Shannon from http://flytomywindow.blogspot.com/ was comment number 20!

Grace and I also love this store! There's nothing better than a little originality and creativity in a gift and the free gift wrap is such a bonus. I used to shop the store in Berkley (when we lived in Royal Oak) and I was thrilled when they opened a store downtown Rochester. I especially LOVE their handmade Christmas ornaments for Christmas. I'm a big fan!

This is my most fab store to shop at for gifts. I bought my niece the cutest bracelet with charms at Catching Fireflies. They just have some really unique items. Plus, I love the blog and the recipes they post periodically. I made the smores bar recipe and omgosh it is YUMMO!!! If you haven’t already printed that recipe off, let me know and I will send it to you.

Sincerely, Kristy Jo

I stumbled up on the store online and love it. So much cute stuff and I love the Christmas ornaments they just put up for the HOliday Season. I'm in PA so the online store is what I use.

This is one of my absolute favorite stores! I only get to shop there when I visit my friends in Michigan as I now live in Chicago (soon to be Phoenix, AZ). Not sure if I'll make it again before we move but I couldn't recommend this place enough for its uniqueness enough!!!!
