A Penny 4 Ur Thoughts Giveaway


GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED

This has to be one of the coolest card shoppes I've found online, and we've been lucky enough here, at the Out Of The Box Sampler, to have them in past boxes and they'll be around for the rest of 2010's sampler boxes! 

A Penny 4 Ur Thoughts shoppe not only includes handmade cards, but also gift tags, boxes and bags too.  They are so reasonably priced and their perfect for adding that extra special touch to the gift your giving away.

Parrie, the owner, recently answered some interview questions for me. 


Q: How long have you been in business?
A: The formal business is three years old.  I have had a life long love affair with paper crafts.  That love steadily grew into a skill as a classroom teacher, where I made exemplary learning aids and displays.

Q: Tell us a little about the products that you sell.
A:  A Penny for Your Thoughts provides high quality greeting cards for all occasions.  We also sell coordinated gift sets that usually include a gift bag or box, card and tag.

Q: What is your best selling item?
A: Greeting cards and gift sets for specific holidays like Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.

Q:  Do you have a wholesale division?
A:  Our executive mailing service that series as our wholesale division.  Local businesses provide us pertinent information about their clientele and we send greetings for their specific special occasions.

Q:  What do you want others to know about your company.
A: Our cards are a full size 8.5x5.5 inches compared to the typical "A2" which is 5x4 inches.  We only use the highest quality materials so that our items can be incorporated into scrapbooks or memory boxes.  All materials are made in a smoke and pet free studio.  Shipping is included in the cost of items.

Q:  How did you decide on the name for your business?
A: A Penny for Your Thoughts is the combination of my nickname "Penny" and the time-honored phrase.

Q:  Where do you see your business going in 5 years?
A:  Our goal is to expand our placement into local shoppes as well as expanding our online presence.  We are currently in conversation with local organizations regarding a partnership in order to provide employment for individuals with limited work experience.

Q:  What is your favorite product to make?
A:  I love putting together gift sets.  The idea of designing a set of matching items for someone's special occasion brings me joy as well.

Q:  What do you feel sets you apart from others in your industry?
A:  The ability to provide reasonably priced high quality items that are keepsakes.

Q:  Tell us something most people don't know about you.
A:  I am a firm believer in supporting individuals who seek to change their lives.  Our business donates congratulatory cards to local organizations serving women entering the work force for the first time.

I really love being able to have a little insight into the businesses and owners with interviews.  So now that you know all about A Penny 4 Ur Thoughts, let's get down to the giveaway.
I have 3 of these adorable gift sets to giveaway to 3 lucky readers.  The sets contain a gift bag, card and matching tag.

Here's how to enter:
Visit A Penny 4 Ur Thoughts website, then come back here and tell me one of your favorite items from there.

That's it.  I'm keeping it simple this time.  Please be sure to include your email address so I can notify you if your a winner.
As always, winners will be picked at random using http://www.random.org/.Photobucket

Beautiful stuff!!! I love making cards and handmade gifts too - I just don't get to do it very often.

I love the "Thinking of You All Occassion" card. My hubby is a musician & I would love to have a card like this for him!
