Giveaway! Win Our One-Of-A-Kind American Flag

On our website this week we’re getting a head start on the 4th of July festivities with a trend story all about the Americana style!  To help celebrate the upcoming holiday we asked our display team to create a Free People version of the American flag. They came back to us with this incredible piece of artwork — and we want to give it away! The detail on this flag is gorgeous — lace, fabric trimmings, fringe, and metallic accents. One lucky winner will receive this one-of-a-kind beauty — all you have to do to enter is tweet this blog post! We’ll select a winner in one week.

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winner, Shanel of Vancouver, BC!

I have a new serger (just arrived in the mail today) and an awesome sewing machine. This would be a wonderful project for my new gadgets. Also, maybe you can post some contest like this for us to make? That would be fun!!!! There was a rug you guys gave away a year or two ago that you gave away. I can’t find the picture in your blog of it but would love to make my own. I think it was made with old blue jeans?

Verna -June 18, 2013, 1:45AM

Flawless! It is a true representation of what America stands for: independence, creativity, and free people! It’s almost as if each piece sewn symbolizes a part of history, our present, and what is to come. The flowers serve as nature’s gift to beauty, for when wind blows across them, they sway freely, proudly, and graciously much like our flag. This flag.

If I am given the honor to win this inimitable art piece, you will award a person who has America in her heart… And Free People to dress her soul.
