If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know I have a great fondness for the Old Lucketts Store. I loved shopping there for years and had the privileged of becoming a vendor there about two years ago. Working with Suzanne, the owner, and all of the other talented vendors and designers there has been great for creative inspiration, but I’ve also been able to see first hand how much heart is at Lucketts. Suzanne and the other folks behind the genius at Lucketts don’t always look at just how to make money, but how to make a difference as well. When brainstorming about this month’s Shop Lucketts giveaway, they wanted to make it about paying it forward. Not just entering a giveaway for yourself, but winning it for someone else. What a lovely idea, right? I know you’ll love playing along and we’ll all love reading what you want to give to who and why.
Here’s how it will work. Choose one IN STOCK item from Shop Lucketts and think about another person who would love this gift, needs it or deserves it. Leave a comment on this blog letting me know which item (any item) you would want to give, to who (you don’t need to give a name) and why. There are lots of great things to choose from…
The giveaway will end Christmas eve, December 24, 2012 at midnight PST. At the end of the giveaway, Lucketts will choose a winner from the comments. If yours is the winning comment, they will need the name and address of the person you want to send the gift to. It’s always nice to get a gift a few days after Christmas…especially one that’s unexpected.
I can’t wait to read the comments.
Tonight, I have my last book signing of 2012. I’ll be at the Center Square Bakery in Elizabethtown, PA (1 South Market Street) from 5-7 pm. Natalie, the owner of Center Square is going to have a few giveaways while I’m there including a dozen cupcakes, a basket of goodies and a $35 gift certificate. In addition, only between the hours that you are there, for every $15 purchased in gift certificates, you will get $5 free. There will also be free cookies and mini cupcakes while supplies last. Don’t leave me to eat them all myself.
Lastly, Jennlyn of Homestead House, the manufacturer of MMS Milk Paint, will be teaching some milk paint workshops at a few locations in Canada. Here’s the schedule if you’re interested in attending…
