House 8810 Kitchen Towels & Menu Pad Giveaway

Have you ever visited a house that has so many fun and cool things that you never wanted to leave?  Welcome to House 8810.

House 8810 is a fab little online shop that specializes in really unique vintage-inspired items that probably don't exist anywhere else.  Go and visit.  I'll bet you will leave with a smile on your face! 

Here are couple of the new holiday items that I really like:

Felt Halloween Masks

Turkey Serving Platter


There are so many retro-cool items at House 8810 that I had to find out a little more about the place.  I did an interview with Alison Scully so we could learn just a little more about the inspiration behind the shop:

SH:  Is there a special significance to the name "House 8810"?

House 8810:  House 8810 is a house. A house that makes everyone feel welcome and at home. We want the items purchased from our shop to help our customers make their house become the house they’ve always wanted. 

SH:  You have a lot of cute vintage-inspired items in your shop.  What  types of items typically catch your eye?

House 8810: Items that have a certain nostalgia, things that make you go “I remember we used to have one of those” or “those remind me of my Grandmother”. We also like things that have a sense of humor to them. We want our customers to be able to make a purchase, put it in their homes, smile and get warm fuzzies every time they see it.

SH:  I have a feeling that you all are the crafty-type.  Are there any crafts or hobbies that you enjoy?

House 8810:  Between all of us here at House 8810, there is a TON of creativity. I love to sew. Others are great photographers, quilters, chefs, you name it, someone at House 8810 knows how to do it. Having people with such creative backgrounds really helps make House 8810 such a fun shop. Thank you so much for the support of House 8810 and offering a giveaway on your great blog!

SH:  Thanks so much for offering this giveaway to my readers!  We appreciate it.

I also want to thank House 8810 for being a new sponsor of Serendipity Handmade!  I'm so happy that they are giving away a couple of wonderful items for you to enjoy.  (You have no idea how much I would love to have these myself!).  Aren't these Berries Jubilee kitchen towels super-cute?

  8. Hi Collette! I really enjoy reading your articles and photos! Very informative, fun, and well-written. That House8810 has a LOT of cool and quirky stuff! I really smiled at the Bone Appettit Apron and the Sharp Act Knife Sharpener. But, for nostalgic reasons, I really like the white wooden folding ruler, because it reminds me of the folding yard stick my mom had. She was a seamstress (one talent among many), and her sewing supplies were like my toys when I was growing up. Thanks for posting about House8810!

  11. I went giddy over those fantastically cheerful vintage looking towels the first time I spied them (a few weeks back) over at House 8810, and love them even more the second time around.

    Thank you for sharing some of your picks from this great site with us, and also for holding such a cool giveaway!


    Big hugs,
