a stroll with sibella: nyc walking tour contest!

by Grace Bonney

I don’t like to do a lot of contests and giveaways on D*S unless they’re something I think is really special, like a book I think people will love for years to come or a chance to learn or benefit from an experience that’s truly unique. Today I’m thrilled to have the chance to offer the second option- an amazing day in NYC with someone we greatly admire here at D*S, Sibella Court.

Sibella’s newest book, A Stylist’s Guide to NYC, has been a favorite of mine since it hit stores. Even though I live here, it’s hard to find all the hidden gems in town and Sibella really was gracious and when she offered up all her insider sources and tips in the book. In honor of that book, Anthropologie is hosting both a book signing and fantastic contest and I’m so excited because they’re going to pick three winners from the Design*Sponge audience to join Sibella on a special NYC walking tour!

Three D*S readers will be chosen to go on a 60-90 minute walking tour with SIbella on May 26th, 2011, as well as receive a signed copy of her book. The tour will guide you through some of her favorite NYC shopping/styling haunts and you’ll get all inside scoop from Sibella herself on where and how to shop for great design deals. We’re going to be there to document the walking tour for D*S so if you win, you can help me try not to totally geek out in from of Sibella.

Here are the details:

  • Anthropologie and D*S will choose 3 winners from the D*S audience
  • Winners will receive a signed copy of Sibella’s book and a 60-90 min walking tour through NYC
  • Travel is not included (sorry guys) so you must be in (or willing to travel to) the NYC area for the tour on May 26th, 2011
  • For full rules and eligibility please read Anthro’s rules here

So, how do you enter? You just need to answer this question: If you wrote a guide to NYC based on your expertise, what would be the book’s name? Please leave your answer in this form: “A ______’s Guide to NYC” For example, if you’re a lover of ribbons and trimming maybe your guide would be called “A Ribbon Fanatic‘s Guide to NYC”. The title can be anything that speaks to you and your personality.

The deadline to leave a comment for consideration is Sunday, May 23rd at 11:59 pm EST. All comments left after that date will not be eligible for the contest. Please only leave one comment per person and one book title within each comment. Anthropologie will be choosing two additional winners via their Facebook page so you click here to check that out as well. Best of luck to everyone and we’ll see three of you next week at Sibella’s walking tour! xo, grace
