10,000 Visitors--and a Miniature Bear Giveaway!
The Queen of Fifty Cents reached a milestone yesterday--our 10,000th visitor stopped by! When I started this adventure back at the end of March I had no idea if anyone would ever read it. Receiving your comments and visiting your blogs has been so much fun, and I love knowing there is a world-wide community of folks who appreciate the quirky wonder of second-hand shopping. My statistics program includes a world map showing where you have visited from, and I've been amazed at how far my words have reached--and how near. Thank you all.
I've been planning to do a series of giveaways in the new year, and this seems like the perfect place to start. The prize? This 3.5" teddy (dated 1986) made by Geri's Bears.
Yes, of course I found it at a yard sale!
What do you have to do to win? As you know, this blog is all about stories, and that's what I want from you! See the tiny gold wishbone charm on Bear's chest?
Leave a comment saying what you think this bear is wishing for. Bear and I will confer and choose our favorite. Deadline: this Sunday, January 4, 1 pm PST. We can't wait to see what wishes you come up with!
