It's a busy time of year. School and sports are in full swing. Before we know it we'll be into the fall and winter holidays. Maybe I'm speaking for myself, or maybe this is for everyone I know, but it seems like a good time for a little self pampering. Maybe some indulgent treats… even better if they are American-made.
You could check out any of our fashion or beauty articles for ideas on ways to treat yourself. Did you see our recent post on updating your home decor for fall with some of our Made in USA finds? What's that? You need MORE indulgence than that? You got it.
How about some chocolate? Yes CHOCOLATE! Our friends at RosieMADE came through for us with a fantastic package for this week's giveaway. The winner will receive a RosieMADE gift bag full of tea and chocolate. What a treat!
Do you know about RosieMADE?
We introduced our readers to RosieMADE last spring and we were honored to have founder Alicia Vanderschuere guest post for us on 10 Things She Loves, Made in Idaho. If you haven't visited RoseMADE, now, as we are heading into the gifting season, is a great time to do so. RosieMADE is an online gift shop, featuring USA made products created from remarkable ingredients and exceptional production methods. It is also a network for American businesses owned or run by women. It is also a newsletter and blog covering business, manufacturing, and American-made products. And it is also a real-life boutique in downtown Boise. All in all, it is a fantastic resource for the Made in USA community and I hope you'll get to know them.
Oh you want to hear more about the chocolate?
The prize winner for this week's giveaway will receive four premium organic chocolate bars, each handmade in Boise, Idaho, in the following flavors:
- Hot Habanero
- Dark Chocolate with sea salt & almonds
- Caramel Creme Latte
- Coconut Almond
The bag will also contain a full-size tin of organic Earl Grey tea from The Octavia Tea Company . The tea leaves come from overseas (due to climate constraints), but the processing happens in Octavia, Illinois.
And finally, the bag itself. The winner will get a RosieMADE tote bag made in Bedford, New Hampshire. The bags are made using recycled cotton and techniques that eliminate any waste by Enviro-Tote, a family-owned, woman-owned and operated company.
We are so excited for our readers to get to know RosieMADE. We've added some fun new entry options for this giveaway. Some of the options include opportunities for multiple daily entries. Good luck!
