WOW!!
Today I had two envelopes from the BC-shop in my mailbox.

I've got 2 x Slim Stickers Rainbow pack, don't know, from whom. Thank you!

And I've got the "Read & Share BookCrossing Totebag" So cute!
5 fabric markers were included. And I asked me, what I should do with it. O my God! Sometimes I'm slow on the uptake. Yeaaaah!! I love this bag and it is with "do it yourself"!

Thank you so much, ApoloniaX!

Well, Berlin ist very special for me and now I have a very nice bag ordered by somebody in Berlin. With a sweet little couple on it.

So I can't control myself and must tell you our story! That needs an own entry ;-)

 

Complete Thread
With the incredible work done by Reno in updating the site, now seems like a perfect time to run this Sweepstake again to add some much needed funds to the coffers.... so lets go again!

Enter here to be in line to receive something from the supply store.
As a sender you can choose tote bags, lapel pin, wings, bookplates, labels, release bags, 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.
Link to the Supply Store: https://www.bookcrossing.com/store

Here's what you need to do:

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 put "R6 BC's Supply Store Sweeps" in the subject line of your PM.

3. On 3 December 2018, I'll draw the winner(s)…..if we have enough participants we can have more than the 1 winner and spread the fun!
I'll PM everyone with the name and address of their 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 STORE FOR SUPPLIES FOR THE WINNER OF THE SWEEPSTAKE, NOT JUST USE SUPPLIES YOU ALREADY HAVE, AND YOUR ORDER DELIVERED DIRECTLY FROM THE STORE TO THE WINNER.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6. As the packages start to arrive, the winner must please 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.

I'll close this off on 3 December, so together we can make Moem very busy for Christmas!
....soooooo..........who's in, and can we beat the 38 sign ups we had for R5!!?

THANK YOU for continuing to run this Sweepstakes, J4shaw!!! 😊

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the winners!!!😊

And...THANK YOU, Moem...for all of your extra efforts spent filling our Supply Store orders during a busy December!!! 😊

 

….....now it's time for some red wine in honor of Moem who will hopefully wake up in a few hours to some Supply Store orders to keep her busy!

Thanks again to all of you who have entered to support BookCrossing in this way.
It brings me so much joy to host this Sweepstakes!

DO NOT FORGET:
A note from our Store Manager:
- Please make very sure that you are NOT ordering prenumbered labels
- Please enter 'Order for R6 Supply Store Sweeps' in the comment box under the payment box when placing your order, so that the Store knows to send to a 3rd party and not to the person ordering it
- The Store has just launched new Bookmarks and they are on sale

 

Received PM, Winged my winner and ordered Bookmarks for them to use for their LFL, and I'll also be sending a Holiday Card!!! 😉

 

LFL

I asked me what that means ;-) Then I asked Google.

Here is the result. Ok, I didn't have to read till the end. Now I know it ;-)

Lower Flammable Limit
Learning For Life
Lucas Films, LTD.
Local Financial Law
Like For Like
Legends Football League
Loner For Life
Lingerie Football League
Luller for Life
Lower Fixation Limit
Lower Flammability Level
Little Free Library
Long Flexible Life
Lust For Life
Lean For Life
Lutherans For Life

 

HAHAHAHAHA!!! 😁 I never tried Googling LFL. That's pretty funny that it brought up all of those choices, Za-ida...THANKS for SHARing!!! 😉 My apologies for the confusion caused by not mentioning LFL as Little Free Library (LFL). There may be others that would not have known what it meant either. I like the Learning For Life choice. 😉

 

HAHAHAHAHA!!! 😁

Yes, I also laughed, in the middle of the night :-)

I like the Learning For Life choice. 😉

Yes, with a lot of lust for life!

And I seem to be a winner!!?!!

I have four more months of wings! Wow, now my wings are lasting till the next decade :-)

wingmcsarwing 4 mos ago
Order placed.
Congratulations to the winners! Thanks J4shaw for hosting this epic sweeps.

Hope my winner likes the bookplates and stickers.

 

Some bookplates and bookmarks, I hope the winner likes it!

 

I just noticed two extra months of wings! So maybe I’m one of the winners? We’ll see if anything turns up in the mail :)

 

for a lucky recipient. I forgot (well I actually didn't see the place) to put a comment about it going to an R6 Sweepstakes winner so I apologize but I'm sure Moem will figure it out.

 

I'm sure Moem will figure it out.

Uh, no, I can't really see that easily if there is no comment on the order. I'm glad you posted this, and that I happened to see your post here. Now let's hope I'll remember until the time comes to pack the order! Can you please tell me the order number? Because I can't see your screenname in the Store backend, so that would make it much easier to know which one is yours.

It's been a while since I ordered something for someone else, but isn't there a box where you type the address of the recipient when it's different from the one who's ordering? As I recall I used that option instead of posting any comments and they always received what I sent (or at least the stuff was never sent to MY address). Has something changed here recently or am I just hallucinating? I didn't take part in this round but am curious now, as I don't really understand the need for an additional message if there's a box for recipient's address already, so just for the future reference...?

I'm glad you asked because that's a really good question!

- The Store uses the billing name + the shipping address, for some reason. If I don't know it's a special case, I will just send it off like that and that can mean that the shipment is delayed or lost because the wrong name is on it.

- Wherever possible, I combine shipments to save some $$ for BC. If I have to keep all addresses in my head just to see whether one pops up again in the same batch, there's not much chance of making that work.

- If it's a SSS order, I add a little note with the screenname of the generous giver (by looking that up from the email address).

Ah, this clarifies a lot! Thank you!

I've sent you a pm with the information and another comment. Hope it helps with the packaging.

It definitely does, thank you!

 

I've just realized that I'm flying, at least until June next year. It took me some time to understand where those wings could come from! (oh my!)

So, maybe Moem is going to have some extra work with me, too. Thank you, Moem :-)
And thank you J4shaw for the wonderful ways you find to support this site/community.

 

wingFifnawing 4 mos ago
Order placed!
Congrats winners, and thanks for organising, J4shaw!

 

It seems to be like speed of light:
Moem is quick, Abi-Gibby is quick, the postman is quick.

Today I received a postcard from Abi-Gibby and she told me, that I've won :-)
And she gave me three months of wings. Thank youuuu!!!

 

Postcard got to you quicker than I thought only posted 3 days ago. Enjoy your 3 months of wings

 

From RoseOfDarkness informing me I am a supply store sweeps winner. It contained a lot of bookplates, stickers, a pen, necklace, earrings (which I will pass on, because I don’t have pierced ears), pins, a lanyard...


THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

 

Don't forget to check your emails & spam for a gift certificate!
Congrats on winning 😊

 

Just placed the order. Sorry for the slight delay.
