as promised, the first of several contests -- fancyfortunecookies.com, a woman-run small business in indianapolis, wants to give you a chance to win a 3-night stay at all-inclusive sandals or beaches resort. ooh la la.
(i'm guessing to make it a full honeymoon you'd want to extend, but 3 days is a pretty good start in this economy!)
if you're into free beach and all that sounds good to you, to enter the contest, you sign up for their mailing list. as you might tell by the name, fancyfortunecookies.com makes fancy fortune cookies (both regular and in colors/flavors, an idea invented by a former ringling bros. clown -- not kidding!). and of course you can unsubscribe from the list if you prefer not to receive fortune-cookie-mail indefinitely.
per our fortunate cookie-friends:
The Sandals Dream Honeymoon Giveaway will end on May 20th, 2009 at 11:59P.M. ET.fine print: just so you know, i'm told there is a $25.00 fee per room per night, so the grand prize isn't *completely* free -- seems likely most people wouldn't mind paying $75.00 for a 3-night stay for two at an all-inclusive resort, but thought you should know. also, only u.s. residents may enter. i promise more contests in the future, canadian friends!
The drawing for the giveaway will take place on or about May 22nd, 2009.
i have included this non-etsy vendor because a) people like contests and winning things, b) erin, who wrote me from the company, was really really nice, loves working with brides, and seriously loves fortune cookies, and c) the blogger who sends the most folks over there gets entered to win an iPod touch or a flip video camcorder (!), which if i win i promise to *also* give away to you readers (!!!), so it's like a meta-contest. you have until may 20th!
etsy wedding is simply the messenger, so if you have questions about the contest, or of course about fancy fortune cookies, please contact the company directly.
here again is the link to enter, and good luck!
