Another Monthly Giveaway: Sexy, Pulpy Goodness From The Basement

It’s time for another monthly giveaway!

This month’s prize is from The Basement, a great shop in Moorhead, MN that stocks new and vintage clothing and accessories for guys and girls.

Owner Amber Fredericks has a great eye for pieces that are pin-up inspired and rockabilly friendly — with lots of skulls, flames and tattoo imagery thrown in for good measure. If you want a better idea of the store’s vibe, check out my earlier article about it here.

This month, one lucky winner will receive a The Basement Gift Package of their choice. The options are shown below.

All you have to do to win is post which gift package you want and why in the comment section below this post by Saturday, September 21 at 11:59 p.m. This giveaway is open to all readers in all locations.

The winner will be drawn randomly and announced on Sunday, September 22.


Gift #1 contains a men’s B movie T-shirt, a car freshener and chain wallet.

I was going to call this the guy’s gift package until I realized that lots of you ladies can rock this look just as well — if not better — than a guy, so don’t let my original bias stop you from fighting for this one if you want it.


Gift #2 (which is my pick, ’cause I’m stereotypically girly like that) features a cowgirl purse, horseshoe socks, pink skull shoe laces, a pink gun bandana and a Bettie Page wallet.

And if you love the goodies at The Basement as much as I do, don’t forget to check it out. Just tell Amber Prairie Style File sent you!

I can’t help it — I like to give stuff away!

  1. I would actually prefer option 1. I consider myself to have the girly physical features but my clothing style is more edgey- and I love to combine the two in a controlled chaos. I would also love to win because, since moving away from the Fargo/Moorhead area a few months ago, I’d love to be able to bring something from the area back to me here in New Orleans. Considering I loved the store when there and adore Amber as well as your blog (been a follower since the first First Friday), it would be simply heartwarming.

  2. Option Numero Uno. As a fan of Z-grade movies, I have to say that T-shirt epitomizes the depths of which bad movies can plumb. I am proud to say I own said movie, and it is GODAWFUL. I would most definitely rock that shirt.

  3. I’d have to go with gift #1. I’m really loving the vintage horror t-shirt. My husband and I love watching horror movies together, and the old ones have a certain over-the-top charm to them.

  4. Considering that I love absolutely everything in her store, I would love to have either. I would go with #2 though if I won. Love that Bettie Page wallet <3
