Mertado {And A Great Giveaway For The Kitchen!}

I just learned about Mertado recently when I read about them online. They are a deal site where you can find a handpicked selection of items for your home and kitchen at special member only prices. Each item is only available for a limited time so if you find a great deal on there you need to buy it right then or you might miss it. When you are a member of Mertado {it’s free to join} you get email notices when new products are added. They also have “how to” videos and feature chefs sharing easy recipes so it’s worth checking out even if you aren’t looking to purchase any items for your home at the moment.

Mertado sent me two items from Peking Handicraft. I received a couple of kitchen towels from Ellen Crimi-Trent which were bright and cheery and perfect for winter and also an apron {from} that I am going to rock when I cook. The apron says, “Santa, I could have been nicer… but doesn’t smart, beautiful and sexy count?” I didn’t have an apron before so I was excited to finally get one. Both items were good quality and the kitchen towels were a really nice size and seemed durable.

Great quality hand towels!


Love this apron!


Peking Handicraft has some beautiful items. You can check out their website here.


Mertado and Peking Handicraft are going to give one lucky reader an apron and hand towels.
