Our "500" Giveaway is Underway!!!

Well guys, we did it - we hit the 500-like mark on the Ephemeraology Facebook page!  Thanks to all of you who "shared" my posts with your friends and had them join in on the fun!

Now we can get to the good stuff!  :D

As promised, we're going to have a BLOWOUT giveaway.  If you didn't see the original post, here's a refresher on what you'll receive if you win:

A bottle of Citra Solv and ATC packs (to make your Nat Geo/Citra Solv collage pages - oh yeah, and to clean!)

An ephemera pack and extra book pages from Manto Fev!

A $20 gift certificate from Old Stuff Only!

A $20 gift certificate from The Paper Flea Market!

A $20 gift certificate from Retro Cafe Art Gallery!

A surprise pack of vintage goodies from Silver Crow Creations!

WOWIE!!!!  And if you've ever shopped at any of these wonderful places before, you know how generous these lovely shop owners are and how much you can purchase with the gift certificates.  This is an ENORMOUS prize pack and you know you want in!  :D

Okay!  So now that you know the stakes, here's what you have to do:
  • Either here or on the FB page, give us a shout-out!  You can write anything you'd like.  :D
  • I cannot stress this enough: You MUST include your e-mail address in the name(at)domain(dot)com format in order to qualify
Also, it would be WONDERFUL if you went to these lovely folks' pages and "liked" them as well, if you haven't done so already.  I want this giveaway to be beneficial for all involved!  Here are the links:
(Old Stuff Only doesn't have a Facebook page yet.)  Speaking of Annie at Silver Crow - she's currently in the hospital. If you could take a moment and keep her in your thoughts, I know she'd appreciate it!  :)

So there you have it.  I will run this giveaway until Friday night, March 9 at 5 p.m. CST.  I would love to see a bunch of you sign up - it's too good to pass up!!!

Lastly, I would like to tell you again how much I appreciate your readership!!!  This blog would be nothing without you - seriously, who likes "talking" to a wall?  :D  I love every comment, question and e-mail that I get from you.  I love that we all dig old stuff and that we "get" it.  :D

Now, who's going to be the first to sign up?  GO!!!
