Giveaway: $150 of Johnny Cupcakes Merch!

 Another amazing holiday-time giveaway! And this one's a peach. Cupcakes Take the Cake and the iconic Johnny Cupcakes are giving away a $150 gift certificate good for anything you please from or from one of his stores.

Some info on Mr. Johnny Cupcakes (aka John Earle) and his stores, just in case you've been living under a rock:
Johnny Cupcakesis an independent clothing and accessories brand founded by CEO John Earle, who began selling his quirky cupcake-themed t-shirts and pins to friends out of the trunk of his beat up '89 Camry in 2001.
Johnny Cupcakes has moved far beyond suitcase-based sales and expanded its reach to include a retail site and eye-catching and engaging storefronts in Boston, Los Angeles and London, UK. Each space is designed as a vintage bakery and displays signature products inside refrigerators and glass bakery displays. All Johnny Cupcakesdesigns are exclusive and most are printed just once, making the products not just stylish, but collectible.

Since you can buy whatever you please with your winnings, I can only suggest some favorites:

·       BAKE Zip-Up Hoody for Girls ($64.99)
·       Crossbones Classic Guys Tee ($34.99)
·       Crossbones Classic Girls Scoop Tee ($34.99)

BAKE zip-up hoody!

Classic women's cupcake & crossbones tee.

And in unisex version:

I have this one, and I love it! It's so so so soft, perfect for wearing to bed.

Wanna win? Bet ya do. To enter, please leave your email address in the comment section, below, and tell us what your favorite Johnny Cupcake product is. This giveaway is open to USA residents only, sorry. We'll be picking a winner and notifying that person via email on Monday, January 7, 2013 (still seems so
weird to type that).

Good luck!
