The MaineTeam is in the holiday spirit and we’ve planned a fun way for you to win a terrific prize for yourself or a gift for someone else. 4 prizes created by Etsy Maine Team artists will be given away each night this week. A black bear is hiding in each of the participating shops (see thread link below). It can be found in a listing within the first two pages of each shop. If you find 15 hidden bears from the shops listed below you will be entered into the drawing once. However, if you find all of the bears listed in the shops you will be entered 3 times. Please send correct listings in one convo to http://adroitjewelers.etsy.com. You may enter one set of correct answers during the week of the holiday hunt. If you do not win on the day you enter, your name will remain in the pool of winners for a chance to win the next day(s). Winners will be drawn at 9:00 PM Etsy time. Happy hunting!
