#SwapSweeps Shoes Giveaway

No one is as good at saving money as thrifters are. We all love a good deal, and what better deal than a free pair of shoes? We’re giving away a pair of black, leather booties to one special thrifter on our Youtube page this week.

This isn’t just a regular pair of booties. The leather is real, so it’s incredibly soft, almost like butter. Also, the shoes have a tall platform, and they’re comfortable to walk in, making them perfect for taking on the workplace or the town in style. And the most impressive fact about these shoes: they retail at almost $400. Hello, luxury.

How can you win?! Head on over to our Youtube video and guess the brand of the shoes in the comments of the video. The first person to guess correctly by Friday, January 12th will win the pair of shoes.

Good luck, thrifters! Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram to stay up to date with the latest giveaways, thrifting trends, and style tips.
