CLOSED Round 4: Int Support BC's Supply Store Sweeps

It's been almost a year since I hosted this, so lets go again!

Enter here to be in line to receive something from the supply store.
As a sender you can choose wings, bookplates, labels, stickers...anything.
You can decide now, or after the winner has been chosen.
Purchases from the supply store is a direct way of putting much needed money into BookCrossing.

Here are the usual rules (shamelessly copied from other sweeps, with some personal additions):

1. First you post here to enter.

2. Then you PM me with your mailing details (EVEN if you think I already have it!) and please put "R4 BC's Supply Store Sweeps" in the subject line of your PM.
If you enter as send only, please nominate another BCer's name to go in the hat.

3. On 26 November 2017, I'll draw two names. One winner and one decoy.
I'll PM everyone with the name and address of the winner (the winner will be PM'ed with the name and address of the decoy).

4. You are expected to make a purchase from the supply store - supplies are preferred (labels, stickers, release bags, wings) but Wings are ok too - and your order delivered to the winner.

- Please make very sure that you are not ordering prenumbered labels.

- Please enter 'Order for the Support BC's Supply Store Sweeps' in the comment box when ordering, if sending directly to the winner, so that the Store know to send to a 3rd party.

5. Please don't let the winner know they have won, either by posting here or by PM, it's much more fun if the packages start arriving out of the blue! And please don't post here the name of the winner!
You can however post what you have ordered for the winner.

6. As the packages start to arrive, the winner must post in this thread what it is they receive, as it's fun for everyone who's entered to see what the winner has got.

7. I will host the next competition within 12 months of the draw.
Let's keep this sweepstake (and supporting BC) going! :)


Store Specials
- 1 Month of Wings on non-Wings Purchases over $40!
- 3 Months of Wings for $12!
- Temporary Price Reduction for Bookplates ($14.95 down from $16.95)
- Temporary Price Reduction for Official Stickers ($5.95 down from $6.95)
- Temporary Price Reduction for Econo Labels ($7.95 down from $8.95)


I'll close this off on 26 November, so together we can make the supply store busy in December!

Profile Image
Order placed for bookplates and travelling book release stickers.
Profile Image
Though I made a mistake by not seeing that the boxes for "prenumbered" were checked. Just got up and didn't have any coffee yet ... poor excuse, I know^^
I wrote to the storesupport in hope they will be able to change it, if not:
Dear winner, if you are going to receive some prenumbered labels please pm me. I ordered some for me, too, and they are not prenumbered so I will definitely pay you the postage for an exchange :) I am sorry!
Profile Image
My section winner will be flying high for an extra three months. Enjoy! :D
Profile Image
for Release bags and Hello world bookplates.
Congrats to the lucky winners!
Profile Image
might I be a winner or a decoy? In any case, thank you very much! I'll place my order later.

Done!
Profile Image
Secret Lives bookplates and release bags ordered just now for my group winner.
Profile Image

Update....

Just looking at the tallys and 1 of the 3 winners has a full set - everyone has already placed an order - whereas 1 other winner no one has yet said they've ordered. Isn't that a funny one.

Looking forward to things starting to arrive - I'm never sure if Moem loves me or hates me when I do this Sweep!
Profile Image

RE: Update....

I'm never sure if Moem loves me or hates me when I do this Sweep!

A bit from column A, a bit from column B. ;-)

No, seriously: it's love, pure as the driven snow. This is a wonderful initiative and things like these help us survive!
Profile Image
My order was made well before the draw to increase the variety of things I could send.
Profile Image
Congratulations to the winners!
Profile Image
but I'm not sure if they are for this sweeps or keeta's :) Thank you all very much
Profile Image
I guess that was me (in this sweeps).
Profile Image
Like Poodlesister, I ordered ahead of time to get more variety and my package will go in the middle of the week.
Profile Image

I ordered!

I'm waiting to receive my new order. You'll just have to be surprised!

Once my disability money deposits on December 3rd, I will be placing my BC Supply Order that will include a $10.00 Gift Certificate for my winner, so they will be able to choose what they like, and/or need, and receive it sooner, as well. ; ) ENJOY!!! : D
THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN for organizing and hosting this Sweeps, J4Shaw!!! ; )

P.S. If you don't mind, J4Shaw, would you please PM your new USA address to me when you have a chance. ; )

Thank you hippolein. Now, what to order... :D

Received your awesome collection of labels, stickers and bookmarks today!
Love them all!

I have two additions to the guidelines as currently outlined:

- Please make very sure you are not ordering prenumbered labels for someone else. That doesn't work, so please doublecheck.

- Please use the word 'Sweeps' in the comment box when ordering. That helps the Store manager (me!) avoid mistakes.

Here's why the second thing is important: the Store uses the mailing address you've stated, but unfortunately, uses the NAME from the billing address. So more often than not, I have to correct the name on the label by hand. That is fine as long as I know to do it; a brief comment in the comment box will alert me. And if your comment is directed at the lucky winner, I will be happy to include it in the envelope. It gets printed on the packing slip so I can just cut it out and stick it on a note.

I love the Sweeps and I love you all. <3

My order says it shipped out on 11/28, so hopefully it will arrive soon! It was estimating 21 days for shipping, which seemed long, but maybe it is accurate after all.

If it doesn't turn up a month or so after the shipping date, I'll order something else for my winner.
