EAOC Summer Madness Treasure Hunt-Thursday, June 18th-Sunday, June 21st 2009

The Etsy’s Artists of Color Street Team is sponsoring an outstanding summer promotion. There will be lots of wonderful prizes to give away so you don’t want to miss out. The rules are simple. Just simply search through the participating shops and find special letters that have been hidden in various listings. The letters will be hidden amongst one of the listing’s photos. Take those letters and form a phrase pertaining to the “Summer”. The phrase will change each day. It’s that simple!

Not only will you will have an opportunity to win a prize but you will also get to visit the shops of many very talented artists and maybe find a few new favorites. No purchase is necessary but if you happen to come across that one item, (or maybe two ) that you just can’t resist by all means BUY IT! 🙂

Now, are you ready for Summer Madness? We thought so. Come join in on the fun and good luck!

The Summer Madness Treasure Hunt will take place in the Etsy Promotions Forum beginning Thursday, June 18th and ending Sunday, June 21st. Each day the EAOC Summer Madness Treasure Hunt will begin at 12 noon and run until 12 midnight, EDT.
Once you have located all of the letters and completed the phrase, email Vanessa at vc1@bellsouth. Make sure in your email that you list each letter that you found and the shop that you found it in.

Again, good luck and have fun!
