Countdown to International Fluevog Day 2013. Reason #2 to celebrate:

FREE Fluevogs!


The Facebook post where my win was announced:)

That’s right. Throughout the day, lucky Voggers like you will have the chance to win FREE Fluevogs! How do I know this? Last year, for IFD 2012, I was one of the lucky people who won two pairs of Fluevogs (the Mini | Elif  in black and ivory and the Mini | QTee in black, cherry, and beige). All I had to do was be at the right place at the right time. (Note: You can read more about last year’s IFD win here. You can probably see signs of this blog’s humble beginnings.)

It’s still surreal to me and I still feel blessed by the Fluevog gods! To think I was considering skipping out on visiting the dealers on IFD… silly, silly me. How did this happen? When I made my purchase, John Fluevog happened to call the Haight Street store. Since I was at the counter while he called, I was lucky enough to FaceTime with him. Yup. I met Mr. Fluevog himself over the internet while he was at another store. As we were chit-chatting, he told me that my purchase was on him. Wa-hoo! Proof that fantastic things happen at Haight Street and all the Fluevog stores across North America on IFD!

If you aren’t one of the lucky winners, you get still 15% off regular priced merchandise when you purchase from your favorite Fluevog Store. A friendly tip to those of you contemplating ordering online: Online orders get free shipping, which is a great deal. However, if you call your favorite Fluevog Store, they’ll honor the standard 15% off discount or free shipping, depending on what works in your favor. As I’ve said before, 15% off is mighty, might nice!

You know you want this…
