Red Patang and a Giveaway!

Giveaway! Giveaway! Giveaway Time!

NRI Indian parents wondering where to source Indian clothes and games for your little ones without having to pay exorbitant shipping costs or deciding which ones are priority while packing those already bulging suitcases on every visit home, Red Patang is here!

Red Patang is a newly launched website for Indian inspired products that are unique, fun and hard to find. Founder Swapna Mehta as a new parent realized that there was a need for a single shopping portal for Indian families in North America. When I asked Swapna why she quit a successful hard-earned career in Finance to start Red Patang, her response was "Some day I wanted our daughter to feel proud that her mother followed her heart."  Awwww... Swapna, I think your daughter will definitely be very proud!

Take a peek at some of the wonderful stuff Red Patang has to offer...Amar Chitra Katha Comics, the Little Guruskool educational series, kurtas, handcrafted lacware toys and Chumbak products at affordable prices.

I am writing up the post today, as Red Patang offers weekly deals every Monday, with deep discounts of 20% to 40%. Red Patang ships economically at a flat rate of $5 for every order in the US and $15 for every Canadian order. So, hop over here and get shopping for your little ones. Also, do keep your eyes out for products coming soon on Red Patang for the grown-ups too ;)

Also, Swapna has been kind enough to offer a giveaway for Sound Horn Please readers!

Very aptly, they are Sound Horn charms and Keychain from Chumbak featured here before. 

The rules of the giveaway as set by Swapna are,

1. Become a fan of RedPatang on their Facebook Page and leave a comment here saying so.  If you are already a redpatang fan - share the giveaway via facebook and leave a comment that you did so.  
2. Follow Sound Horn Please and leave a comment. If you are already a follower, leave a comment saying so.
For an extra entry  - 
3. Blog/Tweet/Facebook about the giveaway and post the link as a comment.  

Each action gives you one entry. The contest is open to U.S. and Canadian readers only. The giveaway is open till April 4th, 9 PM EST

I've had e-mails from a lot of readers here asking me about fun new Indian products they could buy for their kids, so I have a series of posts all this week on some lovely Indian kids' products available. 

Watch this space!

This is the first time I am trying to enroll myself for a give away. I have no idea how it works but pretty sure it would be very interesting and also exciting for the one who wins it. Please guide technologically challenged people like me. :) Thanks.
