We asked you: "How and when did you first hear about LocalShops1?" It has been really fun reading your answers, reminiscing of when we first met and looking forward to meeting those we haven't yet. Our next event takes place Wednesday, Oct. 5, and we hope to see many of you there. There's no admission fee, and we're even giving away swag bags to the first seven people who show up AND have registered online.
Now, on to your responses!
And the winner is .... As promised, we have chosen one answer at random to receive the $30 gift card to Neptune Grill, one of the newest restaurants in Gulfport. ... and the winner is .... Sun Flow!!!!!! Congratulations! Please email us your address so we can send you your gift card.
And for everyone else who entered: If you don't already have the swanky 1Card package, complete with Shopping & Dining guide and QR-coded bookmark, send us your address and we'll get you one out in the mail! This is a $20 value. If you already have the swanky 1Card package, you can get one for a friend so they, too, can join Tampa Bay's Buy Local Movement. Please include your Facebook name in the email, so we can verify that you are, indeed, on this list.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. E-mails must be received by Oct. 1, 2011, to be eligible for the swag.
