I got a few emails and comments about the latest releases and as usual I am not able to make everyone happy. Many of you understand that it is impossible to keep everyone happy and I do try hard to get things into as many different people's hands as I can. But there sometimes are lingering questions of fairness and I'm always looking for ways to even the playing field.
OK, I had been thinking of this for about a year but wasn't sure how to go about it. Jenny kindly helped me think it through and wrote some software to do it and I am immensely grateful for her help. Folks, we had literally hours of heated arguments over this and how to best do it. I'm not claiming it is perfect but I think it's worth a try for one of a kind or very short run items.
Here's how it would work:
I would post an item with description, picture and the price on the blog for your consideration. If you are interested, you can sign up and enter your name into the drawing for the chance to purchase the item. It could be one thing at a time or it could be several of the same items at once.
You'd be able to see your number and a screen name displayed publicly but your real name, address and email address would remain invisible and would never be shared.
The winner or winners would be picked via an online random number generator service (randomizer.org) and I can post the winners on the blog. Winners would then be sent an email with link to a special purchase page on my site. Winners would have 24 hours to respond to my email and if I don't hear back before then, I would draw a new number.
Only one entry per person and duplicates will be discarded. Shipping address on lottery entry MUST match the actual shipping address if a purchase is made.
Here's the first time test item. An old school titanium Prybaby. This is a full sized Prybaby that has been cut down to make a shorty out of it. It's bead blasted, has a subtle pattern on it and is anodized in the UV color. Price is $75 plus shipping. Shipping runs $6 for US and $12 worldwide.
Lottery is now closed. Will post the winner very soon...still waiting for Jenny to wake up. ;)
This will be closed to entries at 9AM EDT Saturday October 4th. Winner will be notified shortly after that.
