“That’s so Potted” Contest Winner

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Jay Burns!


It was a valiant battle right down to the wire, but with around 400 votes, Jay was our clear winner. Congratulations, Jay. Jay brought those mailboxes with him from his New York apartment building and we think it was a very clever re-use for them. Maybe he’ll use his $500 gift certificate to get a really cool piece of vintage Egyptian Iron to put on the wall behind it. We look forward to seeing you in the store soon, Jay.

This contest was so much fun that we will definitely be doing another. Perhaps in the Fall? If you have suggestions or ideas, please let us know.
