We are excited to announce the winner of the 2015 Holiday Sweepstakes!
Carolyn from Pennsylvania was randomly selected from over 23,000 entries to be the winner of a $500 shopping spree and an exclusive set of Peruvian Vases designed by Boston-based Jill Rosenwald. She was so shocked when she received her email of congratulations that she just couldn’t believe it was true. After showing the email to her husband, who was even more skeptical than she was, they decided to investigate further. Assuming it must be a mistake or a scam, they drove all the way to the home office in Akron to find out for themselves!
We couldn’t be happier for Carolyn. Since she took the time to stop by and confirm that she had in fact won the prize, we got the pleasure of spending a few moments to take some photos and chat. “I’ve never won anything in my life!” she exclaimed after telling us her daughter had just won Bruce Springsteen tickets on the radio the day before. She resolved to have her husband buy a lottery ticket that afternoon, since the family must have been in the middle of a lucky streak. Ten Thousand Villages is her favorite store, and she has been eyeing up a piece of our salvaged wood furniture for months now. She’s looking forward to finally taking the plunge to buy it, and plans to use it to display her new set of vases.
