Canada Day Road Trip and Giveaway!

This contest has now closed but stay tuned for all the 2011 Canada Day fun ahead: Discounts, treasuries, Canadian shout outs and more!

The Trans Canada Etsy Team is having a virtual road trip and we are giving away two amazing prizes! The promotion runs from June 20th to July 1st (2009).

During this time, when you make a purchase from a participating shop, you automatically earn one ticket into a prize draw for every $10 you spend (before shipping is added to the total). So if you spend up to $10, you will get one ticket. If you spend $50, you get 5 tickets.

If you mention the promotional code "Road Trip" in the notes to seller when you check out, you can earn one additional ticket into the prize draw.

There are two incredible prizes!

A $350 Prize Pack consisting of all these handmade items:

And a $240 Handwoven Rag Rug:

The rag rug was woven by Pegg, FiveForty, using tshirts that were sent to her from all the participating team members across Canada. It's gorgeous and big, measuring 34"x55"! It is a wonderful collaboration bringing together our members from coast to coast, and beautifully executed by Fiveforty through her artistry and skill.

So here is how you win! From June 20th to July 1st, any purchase you make from the participating shops will get your name into the draw. You get one ballot for every $10 that you spend. On July 2nd, we will draw for the winners. Remember, if you mention the promo code "Road Trip" when you make your purchase, you will get one extra ballot!

Here is a list of participating shops and prizes that each shop has donated to the prize pack. Remember, you earn 1 ticket for each $10 you spend (prior to shipping costs) in these shops:

Whoo hoo! Look at all the amazing prizes. The rug is so awesome. I love that each of the participating artisans contributed to it. Pegg, you did an absolutely amazing job taking all of the recycled T Shirts and weaving them into a piece of usable art.
