Shopping in Korea Contest!

Not too long ago, I passed my 100 follower mark. WOW! I'm so thrilled to be a part of the blogging community. This calls for a celebration!

If you like to shop as much as I do, then this is the contest for you. There are so many contests out there, but I wanted something a little different that is uniquly ME. And since much of what I write on this blog is about Korea and my latest WIP is set in Korea, I thought I'd bring the Korean marketplace to you.

So I picked up a few cute, easy-to-mail things in Insadong that I hoped you'd love.  Because I love my fellow bloggers! Take a few minutes and 'look around'. Then fill out the form below.

Have fun shopping!
A cute notebook with pencil to jot down all your brillant ideas (got one of these for myself too!)











A set of chopsticks with Korean style holders.

















Adorable Korean children wearing the traditional hanbok magnets.









A purse or case in traditional Korean colors.










Coasters with the sam-taegeuk symbol.









Bookmark with the traditional Korean doors with the kite (reminded me of the SCBWI kite)












Silk bag holding a handmade necklace.













Large silk bag.


Contest ends on April 10th, 1 pm Korea time. (midnight, Apr. 9th, US eastern standard time)

I wanted to post pictures for you of Insadong but I forgot my camera! But I'll be going back soon because Insadong is adorable, quaint and you must see it!

Happy Shopping!

If you notice anything weird, I'm making changes to my blog. Eek!

Bish Denham said...

LOVE the contest Christina and I like the look of your blog.

Jen and Steven said...

I like the new look too! What a fun contest and I have no idea how you figured out how to create a survey/entry form, but it was nice and easy. Of course shopping there in person would be fabulous, but this is an excellent alternative. :)

What a fun contest! You go girl. Luv it!

Victoria Dixon said...

What a sweet idea! And yes, the new look is tres chic. I have to do this to my blog, too. I've gritched about the lack of variety in blogspot for long enough, you'd think I would have jumped to make changes.
Thanks for dropping by!

Christina Farley said...

Jen! I wish you could be here with me. Miss you!

Thanks guys for the blogging love. I'm learning here.

Victoria- Good luck. But I love your header. I tried to find something Asian-like since nearly everything I write is based overseas but then not EVERYTHING is Asian, so you know...

I popped over here from Market My Words and I'm so glad I did! Congrats on surpassing 100 followers! Happy to be your newest :)

Hi, Christina! I'm happy to report I did not have to change my header and I did find something appropriate. It's not exactly what I wanted, but finding the perfect accent seemed unlikely. ;D

Hi Christina! LOVE the new look. Sorry I wasn't around to help!!!

The contest looks great...but am I the only one who can't scroll down and actually enter the contest?

Kate Fall said...

Christina Farley said...

Victoria Dixon said...

Hey, Christina! I just checked out Korea.net as I thought it might be a good site link on my blog. Your blog's coasters are right there, front and center. ;D Pretty cool.

Christina Farley said...

Oh Victoria thanks for showing me this. So exciting!

beth said...

I figured out the problem! The only way I can scroll to the bottom of the form is if I have a scroll button on my mouse. I was logging on from my laptop (no mouse--no scroll). Once I tried on my desktop with my mouse, it worked!

Elana Johnson said...

How fun! I'm so excited for this contest! Congrats on the followers!

Kirsten said...

What a fun idea! I love all the prizes - totally remind me of when I was in Korea :)
