[CLOSED] Enter – Winter Garage Sale Contest!

Now that the weather is clearing up and spring is in sight (for us optimistic ones), join us in downsizing your home or studio. Post five (or more) items during the month of March to Krrb.com and you could win $250 cash + 50 free Krrb credits. Double your chances to win with our Social Choice Award

How to enter

1 — Join Krrb and post

If you are not already a member, join Krrb for free and start posting immediately – it’s fun, fast and easy. Your items are displayed elegantly in Krrb’s hyper-local listings and in your own personal ‘corner’ shop.

2 — Curate your ‘garage sale’ corner

Pick a fun idea from the list below, mix it up or make up your own. Don’t forget to complete all your settings such as setting your corner name and address, uploading a picture and a short bio. For doing so, Krrbie will reward free credits.

3 — Make your submission

Once you’re done, make your submission by commenting below this blog post with the URL link to your Krrb corner. Only entries with 5 posts or more will be considered. All posts in your corner must be real and available to your neighbors.

4 — Double your chances to win

The entry with the most ‘Facebook Likes’ across all posts wins the ‘Social Choice Award’. So spread the word and get your friends, family and neighbors checking out your goods.

The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 27th at 11:59pm EST. We’ll announce the winners on March 29th via blog post and newsletter.

Prizes

Prizes include:

Top corner (1) winner — $250 USD (via PayPal) + 50 free Krrb credits

Social choice (1) winner — $50 USD (via PayPal) + 50 free Krrb credits

Honorable corners (5) winners — 50 free Krrb credits

Criteria

Judging will be based off the following criteria:

Storytelling — How well does your corner and each post tell a personal story?

Neighborly — Is the overall tone friendly, familiar and fun?

Creativity — Are you using Krrb in an innovative and imaginative way?

Quality — Pretty pictures and well-written text goes a long way.

A few fun ideas…

Pre-spring cleaning — It’s cold outside, the heat is on and it’s stuffy inside. Give yourself some breathing room and sell off a few things creating clutter around the house.

Studio stash — Sell off your extra materials for your art, craft, design, etc.

Treasure trove — Dust off that old stuff in your basement or attic and give it a good new home. Your trash is another’s treasure.

Closet clearance — Make room in your closet by getting rid of the stuff you’re not wearing.

Craft corner — Showcase and sell your craft to your neighbors, they’ll be happy to know you’re right around the corner.

Giveaway madness — OMG, you’re crazy for giving that away! That’s right, give it all away, you’ll feel soooo much better.

No purchase necessary. This competition is open to all Krrb members, including international members! You may submit multiple corners as long as each corner represents a different entity (e.g. your personally and your business). See official rules.
