A CSN gift certificate giveaway! (now closed)

There's nothing I love more than a giveaway. I love participating in them, and I absolutely love hosting them. Thanks to the great folks at CSN Stores, the Boston-based group of 200+ online stores, I'm able to give you a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to be used at any CSN store. Whether you're looking for a fun wood swing set as warmer weather approaches or new cookware for your kitchen or a cute new handbag, you'll be able to find it at a CSN store.

I wish I'd seen this very cool OKO Ergonomic Trike from Italtrike when my children were younger. Made in Italy, this trike merges modern design with comfort and safety. CSN's store Swingsets and More offers a wide range of products for outdoor fun, from bicycles for both children and adults to trampolines and lawn games.


Recently, I discovered the work of Eva Zeisel, the Budapest-born industrial designer known for her ceramics. (Late to the party, I know.) Her work is in museums throughout the world from the Victoria and Albert in London to New York's Museum of Modern Art. I found this lovely set of Chantal mugs by Eva Zeisel at CSN Stores. Wouldn't the garden green color suit my Cooking Apple kitchen perfectly?





How to enter:
- Browse through CSN's Swingsets and More store. Pick out something you'd like for your children (or grandchildren or niece/nephew) or something you would have loved as a child. Leave a comment here, telling me the item you've selected. This comment counts as one entry.

How to gain additional entries:

Rules:
- Contest is open to the residents of the U.S. and Canada only. You must be 18 or older.
- This contest ends on Sunday, March 6, at 11:00 pm EST.
- Winner to be announced Tuesday, March 8.
- Any entries after the deadline will be deleted.
- Only one person per household may enter. By entering, you agree to forfeit your prize if it's determined that you entered under more than one name/email.
- Winner will be chosen at random via Random.org generator.
