This fall I’ve had the opportunity to host two Queen Bee Markets. Next week will be the third and final stop of the season at the Sheraton Carlsbad. It’s been so fun over the years to meet 30days friends that have come to shop at the market. I’d love to see you there! And pssst….there will be some super fun bloggers there on Friday night.

What is the QBM? It’s a handmade market (aka craft boutique) based in the San Diego area. Started in 2010, next week will be the tenth and biggest show!! With 70+ amaaaazing vendors, you won’t be disappointed. At QBM you will find accessories, home decor, kids items, clothing, and more. This time I have several people traveling from far far away. I can’t wait to show them the support of this handmade community!
There will also be Crafty Girls Night Out on Friday, November 16th from 4-9pm. Basic Grey, Pick Your Plum and DecoArt are providing some super fun make and takes. Mobile Photo Booth – the most awesome photo booth company- will be there to party with us as well. Saturday, November 17th from 9am-3pm the shopping will continue. It’s the perfect time to a little time away to shop for the holidays and support handmade businesses.
The only possible thing that could make it a tiny better? An iPad mini giveaway. Thirty Handmade Days is sponsoring this one. The idea came from this movie:
Sorry. No chocolate is involved. :)
In order to qualify:
You must follow the guidelines below and you will then be given a “golden ticket.” One of you will win an awesome prize- one new iPad mini 16gb with wi-fi!! Note: this is limited to those who will be attending the market only. There will be several ways to take part in this giveaway: (please read all of the information below to play along correctly)
- Enter via Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post using your Facebook account or email address to receive ONE golden ticket.
Follow the steps outlined. In order to receive your golden ticket you must tag QBM on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and/or cc the Queen Bee Market on your emails. You won’t receive a ticket until you’ve followed the steps.
After you’ve entered all of the info, I will send you an email containing your golden ticket. In order to officially be entered, you have to bring your golden ticket to Queen Bee Market on November 16-17th. Your name will be on a list at the entrance to the market. Your ticket will be physically added to the other entries.
- For every $50 you spend at the Market you will receive ONE golden ticket. For example: $300 spent = 6 golden tickets and 6 chances to win. These golden tickets will be given and filled out at checkout.
- There will be a golden ticket item at participating vendor booths. As you shop, keep your eyes out for items that have a golden ticket. If you purchase that item, you will receive one golden ticket entry to be filled out at checkout.
One winner will be drawn at random after the conclusion of the Queen Bee Market and emailed. The winner will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be drawn. The iPad mini will be shipped directly to the winner.
——->In addition to the iPad mini, I will be randomly pulling 5 people who participated in the online portion of this giveaway via Rafflecopter to receive a swag bag. And these swag bags are amazing! Those 5 will be notified before the market. You must be in attendance to receive your swag at the Queen Bee Market.
Shopping at a craft boutique + supporting handmade + possibility of winning an iPad mini and swag? What are you waiting for? Good luck!
