Win A Swarovski Sample Box

It's time for our last contest during our 15th birthday month.  The other day a customer asked me what the "ee" in stood for and I thought it would make a great contest question!  Here's how to enter:

Tell me what the "ee" in stands for by sending your answer to me in an email to   Please include your full name and mailing address in your email.  From all the correct answers I receive, I'll pick three random names to win one of three Swarovski sample boxes.  One guess per email address please and you can guess through Monday, February 28th and I'll pick the winner at noon Eastern.  Good luck and happy weekend!

And the winners are:
The correct answer to what the ee in stands for was Eclectic Etc.  We shortened it to eebeads after a while because we noticed people had a really hard time spelling eclectic.  Congratulations to our winners, they are:
Paige Mixim of Readfield, Maine
Cynthia Dobbertean, Hammondsport, New York
Debbie Gilligam, Troy New York

Thank you to everyone who sent in a guess!

Guess How Many Kilos We Received

It's time for another contest! A couple weeks ago we received our yearly shipment of Inexpensive Indian Glass Beads. The beads come in small white, one kilo size boxes (I'm holding one). The larger cartons are cardboard and then wrapped and stitched up in burlap filled with these smaller white boxes. We received 10 of the larger boxes.

The contest is to guess how many of the small, white, 1 kilo boxes are in our shipment. You can see the entire shipment in the photo.

The winner is:
I had actually 4 people who didn't go over and guessed 240 which were the closest guesses.  The actual number of kilos in our shipment was 242.  The guessers were Judy, Timea, Patti and Karen.  Using a random number generator, Patti Welsh of Grand Rapids, Ohio is the winner!  There were 242 kilos in our shipment.  Thank you to everyone for playing!
