April 2014 – Treasure Hunting Finds, Prize and Giveaway

Welcome to our monthly giveaway contest.  Each month we will give away a new product to a subscriber of our newsletter who submits a find on our blog (post below or send via email).  Additionally we will accept a link to a picture or video of the find on a site that is clearly owned by you.  How do we determine the winner?  By value?  NO.  By age?  NO.  The only factor considered is the “coolness” factor…judged by us.  If we like it, we will pick it.  The only rule is that we pick a subscriber’s picture that we think is the coolest and give them a prize.  If you win, you win.  If not, try again next month!  Since the prize changes each month, you may want to try again next month anyway! 

Please make sure the image is clear and we can see the object so we can tell what it is…otherwise the item may be disqualified!
