So last week on twitter Chapters Indigo ran a contest to attend the preview of their new Fall 2011 Lifestyle Collection. Originally it was supposed to be 25 winners, but due to overwhelming demand, they opened up more spots for people to attend. I was one of those lucky people invited to the Chapters Indigo HQ for this event. For those of you who don’t know, Chapters Indigo (this also includes Coles stores) is Canada’s answer to Barnes & Noble. They are Canada’s leading chain for all of your books, music and movies!
I was able to bring a +1 to the event and since the lovely Evie from Bookish is in town, I decided to bring her along. We met up with a bunch of bloggers and awesome people (Brenna, Jenn, & Gwen) that we know from twitter and were able to partake in great food, conversation and get a sneak peek at some of the wonderful merchandise that Chapters Indigo will be selling this fall in stores and online. There were prize giveaways (
apparently I won a copy of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, but due to my needing to leave early the prize went to someone else they are actually going to send me a copy!), and everyone received a swag bag at the end of the nigh
Above are photos of some of the merchandise offered as part of the Fall 2011 Lifestyle Collection as well as the swag we received at the end of the night. As you can see, Chapters Indigo has really taken this collection to a whole new level. The items are fun, functional, excellent quality and all at a great price! If you haven’t already done so, I urge you to check out the new Fall 2011 Lifestyle Collection from Chapters Indigo. You won’t be disappointed.
