New Contest Cuz I Need Your Help!

Exciting news! Phydeaux Designs will be in a few holiday guides/online market/venues in November and December! I'm working on which items to include, but would love your help.

So here's the contest with a deadline of this Friday, 10/31/08 at 12 noon Pacific Standard Time!

Help me decide which items to include by telling me your favorite three items in my shop in the comments below. Be sure to think of which items you think you'd most likely give as gifts! If you love a previously sold scarf that you don't see in my shop, include it! I may just be waiting for more yarn to knit another.

I'll draw a name from entrants randomly Saturday morning (11/1) and announce it right here. The only persons not eligible to enter are my two fuzzy persons (who haven't mastered the computer anyway).

So what will the winner receive? One of my Soft Neckwarmer/Scarflettes (up to a $30 value), and the choice will be yours! I have at least two new designs arriving in the shop this week, and they'll also be up for grabs.

One entry per person, please (but with your favorite three), BUT you can get bonus entries in the following ways!
  1. One bonus entry if you join the newsletter (current subscribers will automatically receive the bonus entry, if they enter)!
  2. One bonus entry for a referred entrant (maximum one, and they must state in their comments that they were referred by you)!
  3. One bonus entry if you announce the contest in your blog (include the link in your entry comment)!
I hope this will be fun for all of you -- it will certainly be fun for me, and I'm already feeling a little less stressed about which items to choose for these very fun gift guides!

I'll post more about the gift guides as the week progresses.

Thanks all!

I'd suggest using 3 different items, like a cuff, scarf, & scarflette. And nearly everyone looks good in turquoise.
My faves include:
Teal waves scarf, soft cocoa scarflette, and the teal chocolate elegance scarf.
Best of luck!

I think that the scarflettes make GREAT gifts - these are the ones that I would choose:

You really offer a wide range, Phy. Good luck to you! xo

Thanks ladies! :)

The Forest Floor scarf is very elegant, I think, and it shows beautifully in the first photo.

The Soft Embers scarf is gorgeous, and a lovely warm color for the season.

Autumn Foliage scarf, for the same reason as lisa above, to show the Phydeaux "look", but I prefer darker shades for the winter.

I'd prefer to give scarves to scarflettes as gifts -- who wouldn't like a scarf?! -- but I think everything you've got is gorgeous!

Good luck!

I just LOVE the Soft Turquoise Scarfette (which would go so beautifully with my new winter coat). It makes me sigh and daydream.

I also adore the Soft Crimson Scarf/Neckbow, which is so feminine and flirtatious. And the Autumn Foliage Scarf - I can only dream of what that feels like in Alpaca. Just stunning.

I also wrote about your contest in my humble blog. =o)

Here are my choices
Scarfette red
Scarfette mulberry
Neck warmer, antique fig.
I think purple is now winter color. Red is a have to for winter.
Good luck...

Digital Misfit said...

Gorgeous pieces, but my first choice is easy (I have had it on my Wist list for awhile now), and that is Teal Chocolate Elegance. In a word, STUNNING.

Forest Floor scarf is another favorite. Unique and stylish, it would look gorgeous with almost any color of winter coat, so it is a great one to promote.

The clean look of the Dijon scarf is wonderful and perfectly unisex for gift buyers. The thick rib knit looks so cozy, it is hard to resist.

Best of luck with your holiday promotions!
