{GUSSY GIVEAWAY #2 now open for comments}


IT'S TIME!
Time for another GUSSY giveaway! That's right, I made it to 100 Etsy sales! HOORAY!!! Who's excited? Are you excited? If not, get there :) This giveaway is something I've never done before. It allows for some pretty intense deals AND multiple people can win. My amazing hubby, Zack, thought of the idea, so once you're done reading through how this works be sure to thank him. It's definitely a big win-win for you and me! So exciting...




Here's the nitty-gritty:

You want to tell everyone you know about this giveaway, and be sure they comment on this post {as well as yourself, too. Don't forget about yourself!} For every comment posted I'll add one tally. For repetition purposes: One comment = one tally. Not sure what to comment about? Well... that is your problem ;) Tell me anything you want! Gussy loves to talk {and listen}.

The total comments left at the end of the giveaway equals the percentage off the winner's order!

How awesome is that?!?!?!?!




Get pumped -- I have huge faith in you guys to blow this giveaway out of the water. Or at least out of Detroit ;)




To clarify:
If 42 people comment, there will be one winner, and the winner receives 42% off one item in stock. If there are over 100 comments, say 112, then there will be be two winners: the first will get 100% off one item {one free item}; the second winner will get 12% off one item. I'm really hoping for multiple winners :)




Remember: You can only win one item. But... multiple people can win as there is one winner per 100 comments. Show me how many people you can share Gussy products with. I also feel like the more Etsy sales I get in the future the more Gussy giveaway's I'll be able to do. So be sure to share The Gus.

Pretty sweeeeeeeet :)




Hope that makes sense and all is understood. Gussy can get a little wordy some times...




IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: This is a giveaway where you want to share with your friends and family who GUSSY is and all the sassy, ruffle'd things available. Just like the last giveaway, multiple entries are not accepted. I'll use random.org to select all winners.




Contest is open NOW through Tuesday, July 28 at Noon, Eastern time.
That's ten solid days of Gussy fun!




*One more thing: the baby blankets made by my Mom and listed in my Etsy shop are not available to win for this contest. I can't give away something that isn't mine, so thanks for your understanding.

Haha, I knew I'd be the first to enter! Comment about whatever you like?! Oh Gus you should not give me that freedom. So I got a new tiny little fish tank at work. It is a blue beta fish. I named it Jelly Bean. I thought it was a girl, but apparently when I bought it it said "male" on the bag. I personally thing Greg made this up, but you know.

Hmm what else...

Maybe I'll just stop by later.

PS - This may be the greatest give away of all time!

Jon and Steph said...

So awesome! What a great idea ;) Enter me for sure! I'll definitely post about this on my blog!

What I want to talk about: let's see...... I am so excited because our friend let us borrow Sopranos seasons 4-7, and we finally get to start watching them tonight! I haven't seen any of 4-7 so it's going to be a great night! Yay for Sopranos!

Great job with 100 sales! You rock!

Whitney said...

I'm am new to sewing just like you but haven't quite taken off as you have. I love looking at your projects - very cute and you are very talented!

CheapTweet said...

I shouldn't be eligible to win, but I just wanted to comment to help the winner get a bigger discount. :)

This giveaway is a great idea! I think it's a very creative and fun way to promote your site. Good luck, everyone!

Sarah said...

Love you stuff as always. So fun! Hope you find a job soon!

Mrs. C said...

I heard about you through Sunshinemeg. Your stuff is awesome! I added you as a fave on Etsy.

I'll post on your giveaway too!

Congrats on 100 sales!

Camille said...

Here's me entering the giveaway (thanks for hosting, by the way). Ummm...my husband wants a pet hedgehog.

Molly Lou Gifts said...

Gussy, what a great idea! This really is a fabulous idea for a giveaway. Mr. Gussy is so smart...you're lucky! :)

I am loving some of your designs and congratulations on your 100 sales!

I am having some renter issues which is so not cool. Mini #2 is trying to walk which in turns leads to many bruises, falls, and a few things that have seen the end of their days. Mini #1 started bible school which is a huge step for him...he is doing it alone. He has always been painfully shy and is now starting to come out of his shell, so I am so proud of him for his new found jump in to independence.

YAY for you! Have a great day!

nikki.francek said...

I love everything you make especially the ruffles. Almost as I love having coffee with GUSSY!

Bernice said...

What a fantastic idea! That Zach, you really got yourself a winner there! I will definitely have a post for you on my design-y blog :)

Christina said...

I'm going to Etsy to take a look at your stuff Gussy!

Jenn said...

Very cute work! I found you off a blog I follow, The Displaced Texan. Your bags are different, which is great after you start seeing the same homemade bags over and over again (I work at the Spouses' Club gift shop on post at Bragg, so I see a bit) Let me know if you'd like to be a vendor, I think your stuff would sell! Can't wait to see how the contest ends!

Pick me...please!

Just reading the comments on this post is fun. The one comment about hedgehog made me think of something to say.

We've been waiting for a baby hedgehog for about 5 weeks already! Yes, you have to wait to get one of these little guys. It is for my son, and we get to pick it up this weekend. They have the cutest little faces.

Love your giveaway! Congrats on the 100th sale!

Hi Gussy! I love your zippy's for my fabric and pouch fetish...obsession...yes, that sounds better! I went to the Detroit area for an out-of-town wedding two weeks ago. We drove from NY, through Canada, and to Port Huron, Michigan...stayed at the Thomas Edison Inn...fun! Now this weekend, we are driving north to New Hampshire and the Boston area for another wedding...and to see Van Morrison in concert! ~in Boston, on August 4th!!!!!!! (Van is my hubby's obsession). There, I can be quite talkative, too! But teachers always are...so they say. I started a Blog last week!
Congratulations on your 100+ sales, Gussy! Best wishes, and thank you. ~Kathy http://www.paperpumpkin.blogspot.com
