Andersonville Wish List Contest on Pinterest

This holiday season we are giving away thousands of dollars worth of great stuff from your favorite Andersonville businesses with daily and weekly contests.  Now that the Thanksgiving leftovers have been (mostly) polished off, it is time to announce our first contest, with a grand prize of $250 in gift certificates from five great Andersonville stores!

CONTEST:  Create a Pinterest board called "My Andersonville Wish List" featuring at least one item from each sponsoring store:  the Andersonville Galleria, GreenSky, The Haymaker Shop, Room Service and Ya Ya’s Antiques.  You can include gifts you'd like to get AND/OR gifts you like to give others.  Also feel free to pin any other items you see in Andersonville stores that would be perfect for your wish list!

RULES:  Include the store name and #Andersonville hashtag with each pin. Pins CANNOT link to an e-commerce site other than that of an Andersonville business (i.e. You’d better not be linking to Amazon!). Pins may link to non-ecommerce sites (blogs, etc.) if they are being used as inspiration. You can also upload photos that you have taken in the store with your smartphone. You must pin at least one item from each store that is sponsoring the giveaway. Once your pinboard is complete, comment on this post with a link to your wish list, send us the link on Twitter @avillechamber or post it on the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.  One winning entry will be selected from a random drawing.

PRIZE:  Grand prize is a package of $50 gift certificates from the Andersonville Galleria, GreenSky, The Haymaker Shop, Room Service and Ya Ya’s Antiques for a total value of $250.   Please thank these businesses for their sponsorship by liking them on Facebook!

DEADLINE:  Contest ends at 11:00am on Monday, December 3rd. Late Night Andersonville (this Friday, Nov. 30) is a great chance to visit Andersonville stores to add items to your wish list!

    1. Sorry! Just saw your comment. Yes! If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, we are running different contests every weekday through (at least) December 21. They will be in a variety of formats - Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Foursquare, blog posts, and even some that don't require a computer at all (though, you do have to visit our pages to find out what they are). We hope you enjoy it!
