Enter Blogoversary Giveaway Now for Nest “Blue Garden” Candle: a Fabulous Find from Thistles

     You have only 2 days left to enter Avad Fan’s 1st Blogoversary giveaway.  The Nest “Blue Garden” candle not only provides a fabulous scent for your home, it also supports an important cause.  Net profits from its sales go to Autism Speaks,the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism.

     To enter the contest, all that you have to do is

  1. Leave a comment below;
  2. Subscribe to Avad Fan using the box in the upper right hand corner; or
  3. If you are already a subscriber, tell me that when you leave your comment.

These rules give each entrant up to two chances to win this candle.  This prize can only be shipped to addresses in the United States and Canada.  Entries will only be accepted until Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 12 noon EDT.

     If you don’t win this luscious candle, you can pick it up at one of my new favorite stores here in the West End:  Thistles.  While the store is not new (it has been in its location on Libbie Avenue since before I moved to Richmond over 25 years ago), I had not visited for many years.  When I stopped by last week in search of this candle, I feel in love with pretty much everything the store carries in its little 3-room shop:  lots of unique and high-quality leather, housewares and even sun hats.  I had to hold myself back, but I now have a trove of new gift ideas in the back of my mind and look forward to returning soon.

     If you don’t live in Richmond, you still have access to Thistles’ high-quality inventory through its


You can even get gifts monogrammed through this site (you know this Avad Fan loves a good monogram.)  If you haven’t already, you’ve got to discover Thistles.

     In the meantime, please enter the giveaway, and good luck!
