Make a Wish List, win a wish part 1. Today: what’s on your vintage Wish List?

About Vivek Wagle

We’ve just introduced you to our new Wish Lists. They love you. They’re waiting for you to love them back.

Need some inspiration? Well, how’s this: we’ve teamed up with vintage-/retro-clothing retailer ModCloth to bring you something special.

Susan, ModCloth’s founder, has always had a passion for thrift and vintage shopping. So when she discovered Airbnb, we knew we had found a kindred spirit. Susan travels around the world to find the most amazing specimens of designer clothing. We find the most amazing places to stay (have you seen our Artsy Abodes Wish List yet?).

It’s a match made in heaven. That’s why Susan created a Wish List of her favorite Vintage-Inspired Abodes on Airbnb.

Modcloth

To celebrate this partnership, we’re holding a contest to see who shares Susan’s passion for fashion. All we need you to do is create your own vintage-inspired Wish List. (See below for instructions.)

If we love your entry, you’ll win one of several $25 gift certificates from ModCloth and Airbnb. We need to have your entry in by 6pm California time TODAY.

Entering is easy: we just need you to create and share your vintage Wish List. All you need to do is log in to Airbnb using Facebook Connect, create a Wish List, and share it via Twitter. Be sure to include the hashtag #lovemywishlist or we won’t be able to find your Wish List!

We’ll announce the winners tonight via our @Airbnb Twitter account. Enjoy wishing!

    Hi Jennifer – it actually takes about 20 seconds! We provided the step-by-step as a courtesy to those who need a walkthrough. You’ll find that it’s actually super intuitive.
