Hand saving hot pads and bamboo spoons for stirring save the day in the kitchen. [Review & Giveaway]

Do you ever want to do something somewhat unique for a special someone? Well, I do and I acted on that desire to do it.

I found a lady who needed a means to get through the Covid-19 financial fiasco. She being an inventive individual, she engaged sewers in the New York/New Jersey area and began to market unique items that we use every day.

As a reader of Chat With Vera, you've probably seen a few of the items she has in her ShopgalNY2020 Etsy Store. Some items that caught my eye were the State and City prints made into aprons, kitchen towels, and hot pads (pot holders). Since my five grown "kids" live in cities and states all across our grand United States of America, I decided to gift each of them with an apron, kitchen towel, and hot pad. That meant.... California, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina. And since there are two of them in North Carolina, I also selected the capital which is Raleigh.

Just to give you a little taste of how delightful these kitchen items are, we're hosting a little giveaway. Prize is 2 pot holders and a bamboo spoon.
