Win Fantastic Prizes and Join in the Sneak Attack Team's One Year Anniversary

Hello everyone!

Would you like to win a fantastic basket of goodies, worth over $300? How about three other giveaways with awesome handmade prizes? Well, this just might be your lucky week! This Thursday is an extremely important day to a lot of Etsy Artisans and Merchants. It is the one year anniversary of the official Sneak Attack.

For those of you that don't know what a Sneak Attack is, I will give you the short and sweet version. Two days a week, many fellow Etsians will converge on a new shop/s that have few or no sales. They purchase an item, sometimes more than one, thus giving the new shop/s numerous sales in a short amount of time. Therefore, becoming the so called 'Sneak Attack.' 

This gives a sort of foot up, so to speak, to the shop owner. Often it is just the encouragement needed to help out the new artists and merchants.  The Handmade Movement site will give you a much more detailed explaination of what a Sneak Attack is.

On Thursday, September 24th, The Handmade Movement and the Etsy Sneak Attack Team will be holding a huge party, with a total of 4 giveaways. One lucky person will win the Grand Prize gift basket, containing more than $300 in prizes.

Everyone is invited to join the giveaway, simply by going to The Handmade Movement and clicking on the Weekly Giveaway logo on the right side of the page. There will be instructions there on how to register to win any of the prizes awarded that day.

Join in on the fun beginning on Tuesday, September 22nd, at the Anniversary Forum Thread where the celebration begins early and runs till the big party on Thursday. Many of the Sneak Attack Team members are having Anniversary sales to run concurrent with the celebration, so drop in to the thread and get some great deals!

The climax comes on Thursday evening at 7pm EST, when the Sneak Attack Team will again converge on some new 'victims.'  All are welcome to join this event, membership to the team is not a prerequisite to joining in the Sneak Attack. If you would like to join in, just go to The Handmade Movement site at 7pm EST, and the shop name or names will be posted for all to go shop it.
