Giveaway at The Tiki Hut!

Update Wednesday, January 27th: It's time for one of my favorite days of the week! It's now Wednesday, which means its time for


hosted by the lovely Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer

I decided that instead of doing a whole new post and sending everyone back to Monday to enter my fabulous giveaway, I would just link it for my OW offering. After all, it is an outdoorsy gift that will be perfect for my OW friends who love taking pictures for this very special meme and I can't think of anything more appropriate for such outings. PLUS, I posted three pics of places in my neighborhood that I love visiting and of course the first one is the BEACH! So, even if you're not into giveaways, I hope you'll comment on my outdoor photos, especially the one of something my dad help build in 1980!

Ya'll are going to love this!

The good folks from the CSN Promo Team contacted me last week to see if I would be interested in doing a product review or a giveaway from one of their online stores. Did I hear giveaway? I know we all love giveaways! They suggested I might like a mailbox or something from their toys and games, but graciously gave me the freedom to choose from any store that I might fancy.

Well, if you know me at all, you know that before I accepted their offer I had to check them out. I have strict guidelines at The Hut and not just anyone can pass the mustard (hint…hint) around here. The first place I always head to is the Better Business Bureau. For me to even think about an offer such as this, the company must have a BBB Rating of A or A+, I am the same way with any company I become affiliated with and offer their products through my blog. (I turned down another company recently that did not meet my standards.)

CSN Stores, LLC has been in business since January 2002 and they were accredited by BBB in March of 2003. They are an online retail business that owns and operates more than 250 e-commerce stores. The company ships to locations throughout the United States and Canada. The GOOD news faithful followers is that they have a BBB Rating of A+!

A+

Once I found that out, I headed straight over to their stores to find the perfect item for a giveaway. This was not as easy as it sounds. They have so many stores and so many goodies you can get lost for hours and literally Shop 'till You Drop. You can view links to all of their stores here.

You're probably wondering what I ended up choosing for you. I gave you a hint earlier — pass the mustard. Did you figure it out? Well, I ended up in their Tailgating Party Supply Store and you know how much I LOVE picnics, so without further ado, here it is:



Capri Picnic for Two Backpack

This insulated picnic backpack is perfect for the adventurous picnicker blogger. This backpack is lightweight, compact, and very practical. The Capri is outfitted with a detachable insulated wine duffel and all the amenities needed for a picnic for two. The backpack features pockets and compartments for all of its accessories. The large food compartment, featuring state-of-the-art Thermo-Guard insulation, will help keep your picnic hot/cold for hours. Great for picnics, hikes, concerts, and sporting events (AND blogging photo shoots). Just pack it up and go!

Inside you'll find:


  • 2 Melamine plates (9")
  • 2 Polystyrene wine glasses
  • 2 Cotton napkins (13" x 13")
  • 2 each - stainless steel knives, forks and spoons
  • Cotton tablecloth (41" x 44")
  • Salt & pepper shaker set
  • Stainless steel cheese knife with wood handle
  • Hardwood cutting board (6" x 6")
  • Stainless steel waiter-style corkscrew

Now I have to be honest with you, CSN did say I could choose a product for myself and do a review and when I found this backpack, I was tempted to do just that. I could just imagine (thanks to Photoshop) packing up a luscious lunch and heading off to

The Beach
(the beach by my house)



 
Heritage Village
(my dad helped build this 1894 Williams Park Bandstand reproduction in 1980)


The Woods
(On the Hillsborough River)

But, I came to my senses and knew this was all about you, my dear readers! What do you need to do to be the lucky winner? First, you must live in the United States or Canada, for this is where the company ships.

Entries will be accepted until midnight PST on Saturday, January 30th. The lucky winner will be announced early on Monday, February 1st. Be sure I can find your email address on your profile page or on your blog so I can contact you if you should win. (If you don't have a blog you must leave your email in your comment.) You will have until midnight PST on Wednesday, February 3rd to respond or I will have to choose another winner.

Then for each of these you do, you will be given an additional entry:

  1. Leave a comment and tell me where would be the first place you would go on a picnic and who would you take with you?
  2. Leave another comment and tell me which color you would like your backpack to be (see pic).
  3. Leave another comment and tell me if you are one of my followers or sign up to be a follower if you truly like my blog (serious followers only please).
  4. Leave another comment telling me you blogged about my giveaway or grab my button below and put it in your sidebar — sharing is a good thing.
  5. Bonus Entry — surf over to CSN, take a look at their list of stores and then come back and leave another comment about which of their stores you would like to check out that I haven't already mentioned in this post.

    Link it to:
    http://www.shellbellestikihut.com/2010/01/giveaway-at-tiki-hut.html

    Make sure you leave these as separate comments, I will print them out and cut them up to throw into the (sun)hat to choose the winner.

    While your waiting for the BIG announcement you can surf over to CSN and check out some of their stores. I found these lovely items in their Mailbox Store:


    Hummingbird Mailbox








    Cardinal Home Plaque 








    Good luck to all of you and have a beachy week!

    I love the cool blue picnic carrier. I would love it!

    I would steal my husband away and go on a picnic very close our home at Webster Lake. It is about 10 minutes away from our house. They have a beautiful lake ( hence, the name!) and it is a beautiful park with lots of fun summer time activities. I am longing for the warmer weather. Plus your blog is the best! Thanks!

    FrugalMom said...

    Hi Rhonda!
    Wonderful give away! I would go on a picnic with my husband this spring or summer to the vineyards of Norhern Long Island. I have been wanting to do that for a long time and then we forget to follow through. Having this pretty bag would be a big help!

    I visted CSN and I liked the Early Childhoo store as it had many, many things I could buy for my grandson. I really liked te lock set and the music table.

    Perfect Blue Moon said...

    I would probably take the picnic down into the forest trails by this dairy farmer just outside of town, been there only a handful of times, and would probably drag my husband and daughter out with me for a good walk once the weather gets warmer!

    Thanks sweetie. You chose wisely.

    Country Wings in Phoenix said...

    Scrapity Anne said...

    I would definitely have a picnic with the hubs and my 2 boys at Lake Carroll near our home. Since we live in GA now, I miss the beach at home in MA so much.

    Scrapity Anne said...

    I love the cornflower blue because it reminds me of the sky over the beach at home in MA.

    Scrapity Anne said...

    definitely a new serious follower, anything beachy is it for me!

    Deb said...

    I think the FIRST place I'd use it would be on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River. That's a favorite hangout to just watch the lazy river flow on toward N'Awlins. This would be perfect for that! Next, I can totally see carrying this to an outdoor concert event, with some gourmet cheese, fruit, crackers, bottle of wine... and stirring music under a glorious night sky.

    Deb said...

    I think I'd prefer the black one.

    Rhonda...such a cute site! I would take my 3 little boys with me to the beach in Santa Rosa, CA right by the Board Walk. There's nothing like little feet, laughter and sand on a fun beach! :0)

    Crystal said...

    Well it is too cold right now to have a picnic outside, right now. I would have one at a local State Park when it gets warmer or possibly a ski slope.

    Crystal said...

    At first I though black because it does not show the dirt. I really like the cornflower blue the best though. I will just spray it with Scotchgard.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

    Crystal said...

    Oh, I have already been one of your followers for awhile. Love your inspiration.

    Yes, a picnic what fun that would be. In Chicagoland area it is gray and frigid. Would be a nice break.

    I would take a picnic to Snoqualmie Falls with my husband and three boys. You hike around the falls, so it would be perfect to have a picnic backpack.

    Lori E said...

    Where would I go on a picnic. Well I would head south of here about 40 minutes. There is an area called Crescent Beach and it would be blowing and cold.
    I would take my BB (big burly) Guy with me of course. Who else will carry the back pack for me?

    Entry # 1
    The place for a Picnic? either Saint Mark's square in Venice, Italy..
    or the Costa del Sol in Spain..
    it is warm there and citrus blossom's will soon be filling the air..
    In reality, probably Pensacola Beach for old times sake..
    my sweetheart would accompany me of course!
    warm hugs..

    I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
