Preview of Our Raffle

CrochetedWristWarmerFeb2014 (4)Over the next couple of days we will be posting stories on our sister blogs about our upcoming Raffle we will be holding at our vendors booth at the Sarasota Folk Festival this year. It is being held at Oscar Scherer State Park in Osprey, Florida the weekend of March 22nd and 23rd from 10:00am to 6:00pm. Our sister site and craft blog is holding the raffle to gain new customers and to help our Florida State Parks. A portion of the proceeds from all the sales that weekend including the raffle will be donated to the Help of State Parks fund (HOSP). For more information you can visit the State of Florida Parks website:

We have made over 200 new items for this event and hope to sell them all so we don’t have to add them to our online store here or at the Handmade Artists Shop. Don’t get me wrong we love adding new items to our online stores but we have been concentrating for the last two months on creating new hand-crafted items and haven’t had any time to do the data entry work yet. We would much rather sell it at the festival. (:-)

For those who are unable to attend the festival we have set up an online raffle page to buy raffle tickets with your Paypal accounts or with your credit cards through the secure servers at Paypal. We will not have access to ANY of your financial information. Once your payment has been processed you will be taken to the Southern Women Crafts Raffle page to type in your name, address and email. We will print out that information onto our ticket form and drop it into our drawing box. On Sunday, around 3:00pm we will draw the winning ticket and announce it on this website, the Southern Women Craft Blog website and Our Great Adventure travel site as well. The winners will be contacted via email about their prize.

If you would like to participate online the price of an online raffle ticket is $2 and we have included the Pay Now Button below:
