Christmas Catalog: Shan's Shinies



This giveaway has now ENDED.
Thank you to all those who participated, and congratulations to our winner toohotforturtle Jinxy and Me!

As part of the CHRISTMAS CATALOG series, I am highlight unique but useful products to make your Christmas shopping easy! This week, I bring to you Shan's Shinies. Shan creates unique items that are both eye-catching and functional. Never sacrifice style for utility again!

I am personally a HUGE fan of her card wallets. Her card wallets are designed to be a cute and compact way to carry around essentials. And best of all, it can be attached to a keychain for easy access. Each card wallet has three slots, with the front two slanted so you can see the corner of your cards. The third slot is perfect for business cards - it can hold up to 25 cards!



As the mother of a young infant, I never have enough hands. Checking out with a baby in your arms in just impossible with the traditional wallet-purse combo. It takes way too long for me to one-handedly fish my wallet out of my purse and then get my card out of my wallet, and all the while the line is getting longer and the baby's getting grumpier. Shan's card wallets are the perfect solution to the chaos. She also makes some beautiful origami coin purses and checkbook wallets in coordinating fabrics, so you can get a whole set of beautifully handmade wallets to put under the Christmas tree. There are only a limited amount of each style, and often the adorning button is one of a kind - the fashion-forward ladies in your life will appreciate the uniqueness of this gift. You sure won't have to worry about running into someone with the same thing.

And here is your chance to win a beautiful card wallet for yourself (or for someone on your Christmas list). Shan has graciously offered a card wallet designed especially for My Precious Pennies' CHRISTMAS CATALOG series. To be enter this giveaway, simply go to Shan's Shinies and take a look around.

I just think the card wallets are great. I had my wallet stolen a few years ago and it was awful. Now I always keep my money separate from my cards. My card wallet is falling apart and I've been looking for a replacement.
This would be great!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I like the Checkbook wallet / pocketbook - Blue and black flowers print and black canvas. Very pretty design. Also like the coin purses - my wallet's coin compartment is hard to close when full.
