Thanks to everyone who posted on Facebook for our March giveaway (and bearing with us during some technical difficulties)! Definitely got some fun entries and were surprised by the amount of stuff people could pack into a single clutch. Serious talent, ladies!

So on to the good part…

We’re excited to announce ROBYN as the winner of our Pretty Pleats Clutch in a gorgeous shade of Rich Violet.

She shared her Davie & Chiyo Bow Clutch in Fuchsia, packed to the gills with her iPod, glasses, makeup and TONS more. Love it!




Congrats, Robyn!


A little over a month ago we were lucky enough to be featured in a sweet little post by Carly Kmyta titled “What’s In My Bag“. Aside from the extremely cute contents of her clutch, we were impressed by her serious packing skills, as she packed the contents of most people’s larger bags into one dainty little Bow Clutch!

Still in awe of the contents of Carly’s clutch, the wheels began to turn, and a few weeks ago we received this brilliant wedding photo from one of our brides, Laurie:

Ping! The lightbulb went off and there was the idea for March contest! So here’s the deal:

1) Post a picture of your Davie & Chiyo clutch and all its goodies on OUR Facebook page.

2) Share a link to your picture on YOUR Facebook wall and get your friends to like your picture.

3) The picture with the most LIKES will win this spring-ready Pretty Pleats Clutch!

The Fine Print: One entry per person. Contest closes on Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:59PM PST.

UPDATE:  Oops! Realizing now that we may have some issues with our giveaway… sharing your photo on your wall doesn’t get you LIKES on our fb page 😦

Photo posts are now considered entries and we’ll randomly select a winner!

(Sorry for the technical difficulties…)

I told you we were itching for a giveaway! Nothing like the promise of crisp spring air, short shorts and grass between your toes to put us in a generous mood. We just reached our milestone 250 likes on Facebook and we can’t wait to double it!

All you need to do is like our Facebook page (if you haven’t already), share THIS on your Facebook wall and tell us about it in the comments or on our wall. As simple as that!

Your efforts won’t go unrewarded. We’re giving away this stunning new clutch to the Davie & Chiyo collection: The Pleated Baguette Clutch. This clutch is longer than our classic, making it oh so easy to tuck under your arm for a night out and fit all of those essentials (even those non-essentials).

And for the fine print – the contest closes on Thursday, February 9th @ 11:59PM PST. We’ll randomly select and contact the winner on Friday, February 10th.


I’m a little late to the game with this one but better late than never…

Sarah from My Olivia Jewelry helped our Romance with Lace Clutch make its way to the frontpage as part of her beautiful blush and nude toned treasury. Definitely my favourite colour palette this year that will be making its way into the fall.

As part of our Etsy Frontpage promotion, Sarah won the clutch of her choice from our shop and will be the proud owner of her very own Pretty Pleats Clutch in Dusty Rose. It’s as easy as that – put together a treasury with any one of our products, make it to the frontpage and you’ve won yourself a D&C clutch!



Playing catch-up over the past few weeks but blogging just in time to announce the winner of the One White Dress contest.

Entrants had 25 words or less to describe which is their favourite clutch and why. Entries were judged on creative license and this was the winning entry:

Love the Cream Chiffon Ruffle,
Reminds me of my personality,
Though theres some kerfuffle,
Its still charming, poised and never loses its identity!

Loving the ABAB rhyme scheme 🙂

Congrats to Ying Ying who will be the proud new owner of our Chiffon Ruffles Clutch in Soft Cream!

Thank you everyone for the amazing entries! There can only be three official winners but with 20% off your next clutch just for entering, I think everyone can feel a little victorious.

PS. Check your inboxes for your exclusive discount code!

To get a few more hats in the ring, we’re extending our Calling All Davie & Chiyo Brides photo contest until Sunday, April 17th, 11:59pm PST. As a thank you, all entries will receive an email with an exclusive discount code for 20% off your next Davie & Chiyo purchase, once the contest closes.

With the 2011 wedding season almost underway (fittings, bridal bootcamps, seating plans and all of those “last minute” finishing touches), we love to look to our past Davie & Chiyo brides and bridesmaids for inspiration. Romantic moments, pre-wedding day hilarity, beaming brides… we want to see it all!

So to make this an annual event, we’re asking for photos for our second annual Calling All Davie & Chiyo Brides photo contest. It’s as easy as pie to enter (or maybe even easier – whoever came up with that saying probably meant eating the pie, not baking it). Just send us a wedding day photo of you with your Davie & Chiyo clutch by Sunday, April 10th, 11:59pm PST. We’ll pick our three favourites, which will be handsomely rewarded with a $50 Davie & Chiyo gift certificate to be used on our website or Etsy shop.

Please email your entries to with the subject line, Davie & Chiyo Photo Contest.

So get cracking on those wedding albums and good luck!

PS. If you entered our contest last year, only new photos (ones that were not previously entered into the contest) will be considered.

Looks like the treasury-hunting is definitely paying off for some Etsy-ers! It’s only been a few short weeks since we started our Etsy frontpage giveaway and already two treasuries have made it to the frontpage. (Both within 2 hours of each other, I might add.) You saw the first last week and here’s the second:



SizeMedium put together a whimsical, spring-inspired collection in pastel hues that she called “Lovebirds, Roses and Mint Tea…”, and her efforts did not go unrewarded. Our second clutch winner chose our All About A Bow Clutch in silver, and she was so excited that she even blogged about it on her blog, One Crafty Fox.

Thanks to 4leafclover we have our first Etsy frontpage of 2011!

And as promised, we’re giving away a clutch to celebrate. 4leafclover chose the oh so luxurious Tiered Rose Clutch in Creme Brulee:

A free clutch!?!?

Yes! For every treasury with a Davie & Chiyo clutch that makes it to the Etsy frontpage, we’ll reward that Etsy-er with a Davie & Chiyo clutch of their choice. It really doesn’t get any sweeter than that! So include us in as many treasuries as frequently as you’d like.

We also have a few tips to get you to that frontpage a little faster:

  • Good photography is essential. Clear, well-lit and color-balanced photos with compelling compositions are more apt to garner clicks from shoppers.
  • A consistent color palette can serve to tie the pieces together.
  • Provide a range of price points
  • Use alternates! When a Treasury List is promoted to the homepage, it includes the four hidden alternate items. On the homepage, items are removed when they sell and the alternate are moved up into view.
  • Provide a varied collection of items. We rarely promote all-one-type-of-product Treasury Lists to the frontpage.  That said, if you’re using the Treasury Lists to promote your Team’s art form, or you’re just plain interested in only earrings, go for it! Not all Treasury Lists are made with the homepage in mind, and this is a good thing.
  • Double check that everything is handmade or properly categorized as vintage or supplies.
  • Double check that sellers you’re featuring have good feedback.
  • Themes and puns are a fun and creative way to organize a list.
  • Give a boost to interesting items from new sellers or items with low views from the back pages of the categories.
  • Make sure no artist is represented more then once on a given Treasury List. (We avoid featuring the same seller twice on a single homepage.)
