Vonny Carriers & Totes (a giveaway!)

Farmers’ Market Tote $76 – Vonny.com

A while back I discovered the fabulous Vonny Bags and have spent some time on their site lusting over a couple of their products- first, the Full-of-Pockets Farmers’ Market Tote. I own a plethora of canvas bags, many of which I use when shopping at the market on the weekends, but they aren’t exactly what I’d call the perfect shopping bag. But this tote? This is perfect.

With large exterior pockets that can hold delicate fruits and vegetables, and interior features like a cell phone pocket, colorful keychain holder, zip pockets to stash my cash and 4 metal feet on bottom to prevent the bag from getting dirty, it’s PERFECT I tell ya! Practical and downright cute too, what more could you ask for?

Then there are the Vonny Casserole Carriers. These things are hot, hot, hot! (or cold, cold, cold- depending on how you look at it).  Completely insulated, they keep food hot or cold, and even have a snazzy exterior pocket to hold serving utensils. Over the past couple of months, I’ve attended a friend’s party, a tailgate, and a work potluck, and the casserole carrier would have come in really handy in transporting my food to and from all of them. For that reason I need one.

But then there is the other, less practical part of me that just wants one. I mean, c’mon, they are super chic! The very cool, hip design is what grabbed my attention in the first place. I have a bit of  a “thing” for retro design, so from the moment I saw the funky circles and stripes, I’ve been infatuated. Apparently I’m not the only one that has had this same reaction. Over the past few days, so many media outlets (including Regis & Kelly) have featured this little gem as a holiday gift idea that they have flown off the shelves!! Most are on backorder until March, but don’t let that deter you from buying one to give to your special someone (hint, hint to my family). The website is still taking orders and even has a printable gift tag that features a photo of your casserole carrier of choice that you can give to the receiver to let them know they have a gift on the way. Hey, who cares if it’s a couple of months in coming? It’ll be worth the wait!

Calliope Casserole Carrier $45 – Vonny.com

Lucky for you, I was aware of this hot little item before the masses, so one of you will have one in time for Christmas! A while back I contacted Vonny and asked her if she’d be kind enough to allow me to do a giveaway for my readers, and she happily obliged. This was before she knew this wave of orders was about to hit her, but she set one aside, and I’ve confirmed, it’s still there waiting for you! Thank you Vonny!!

A Calliope Carrier is up for grabs, and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment below telling me what’s at the top of your Christmas list this year. That is the one step you are required to make to enter, and you can only do it once. If you want a bonus entry, then you can tweet the following: “Win a super hip Vonny Casserole Carrier from @betheats http://bit.ly/fLvicD” and then come back here and tell me you tweeted.

Easy as that! Contest is open to U.S. residents only, and you must provide a valid email address to win. Contest ends this Sunday, December 12th at noon Central, and I’ll use random.org at that time to pick the winner. Good luck!


The winner is Kristen (#28)! Congrats!
