We have a winner…

So, the lines have closed and the stars have been counted. Down at the Howies store in Carnaby Street, our helpers have been busy packing away the wonderful items from our Howies competition. I wish I could say that I had an envelope in front of me with the winner’s name in it, but truth be told, the name was actually just whispered down the phone to me a moment ago.

So without further ado, the winner is…

…the She’s Got Bottle! Apron from iris+lily handmade.

Congratulations from everyone here at Folksy – we think it’s a deserved winner. We especially like the fact that the material has been inventively recycled from a cotton twill curtain!

We’ll be in contact with the winner and everyone who had a shortlisted item shortly to give you your prizes, and the items will be returned to you just as soon as we’ve negotiated the Post Office obstacle course queues.

And don’t forget, once the items are returned, they’ll be available for sale from early next week (provided the makers don’t decide to keep them for themselves!). So if any of the items take your fancy, get ready to snap it up before someone else does!
