Wool Overs is not pulling the wool over your eyes when they say their natural fiber clothing is an amazing value.

And the Winner is…

Vertigo Paris jacket price tagMaria, who guessed that we paid $3.50 for the adorable Vertigo Paris snap-button jacket in black, made in France. Actually, we paid $4 (see the photo), but Maria’s guess was closest.

Maria wins a pair of tickets to the 5th Annual Good Style Fashion Show on Thursday, May 7!

If you didn’t win, you can still purchase tickets. Several options are available, including VIP tickets for $90 and discount tickets for $30. No matter which you buy, you’ll still get heavy hors d’oeuvres, a drink ticket, boutique shopping, a gift bag and, of course, the runway show!

Get details for the show on the Goodwill site.

Thanks to all our contest participants on our blog and on our Facebook page, and we hope to see you at the show!
