It's GIVEAWAY Time! Just Because I Love You

Happy Wednesday, everyone, and welcome to my very first, inaugural, brand-spanking-new


Can I get a WOOT WOOT?!

Yes, that's right folks. Just because I love you, and because I've never hosted one before (and there's a first time for everything ~ or at least there should be), and because it's crazily, unbelievably springy outside and I am SUPER-excited about home-related tradeshows of all kinds, I've decided that NOW is the time to host my first-ever giveaway, and I couldn't be more excited.

So y'all know about my slightly obsessive completely normal and healthy love of home shows et al; I yak about them all the time (yak, yak, yakkityyak). One of my very favourite shows is always the One of a Kind Craft Show series, which turns up in Toronto each year at the end of November for Christmas, and again at the end of March/beginning of April to herald the arrival of spring. My mum and I have made annual pilgrimages to the Christmas show for more than a decade now and have never been disappointed; it's an important part of our holiday traditions. But it's only been recently ~ in the last three years or so ~ that she and I have taken up the banner of the Spring show as well and it turns out we love it just as much, if not more!


Where the holiday show is more traditional and of course, rather skewed to the Christmas season, the spring show is all fresh, lively, colourful and uplifting. I'm talking all kinds of artisanal goodness, from textiles to fashion, pottery to jewelry, furniture to visual arts ... you'll find it all. Even better, OOAK has lined up a series of fabulous shows and seminars on the main stage, one of them featuring none other than Christine Dovey of the fabulous blog Bijou and Boheme {psst: she's speaking about creating a curated house on Sunday, April 1 at 1PM ... you should go}

So where am I going with this? To the show, of course! AND SO ARE YOU!!

Whaaaaaaaat? Yes, peeps, this here is my giveaway: One friend of Money Pit Love will win two (2) tickets (for you and a guest) to the One of a Kind Spring Show & Sale, courtesy of yours truly. Woo-to-the-HOOOO, right?! Again, because I love you :)

So how do you win? It's simple:
  1. Check out the OOAK website to get all pumped up about the show.
  2. Subscribe as a follower of Money Pit Love
  3. Leave me a comment letting me know what you'll be shopping for at the show (and 'inspiration' counts!) and that you're a follower!
It's as easy as that! And for those of you who are really keen for tickets, when you Tweet the giveaway to your Tweeple or post it on your Facebook page (and leave me comments to let me know), you get an extra entry into the draw ... for each one!
If you're doing the math, you'll see that's a possible 1! ... 2! ... 3! chances to win per person.

Giveaway closes on Sunday {March 25} at 5pm and I will announce the winner on Monday, March 26, 2012. Due to the actual location of the show, I'm afraid I have to restrict the contest to folks in Toronto proper and within the GTA; basically, within driving distance of the show (because much as I'd like to, I can't fly you into Toronto for the pleasure of attending). Sorry, non-local readers, but rest assured the next giveaway will be open to all!

So what are you waiting for .... go ahead and enter! Good luck everyone!!

PS - I wasn't paid or perked by OOAK in any way to host this giveaway. I just love the shows and thought you might too, and I love you all enough to give you something for free!
