Umbrella Shoppe Contest!

If it's a day that ends in "Y", you can expect a contest here at Mums the Wurd!

Do you long to have your children read books that you read as a wee one? I do. My favorite was "Popcorn", and it's sadly out of print. I am so glad my mom and dad kept almost my entire collection (as former bookstore owners, it's a sin to ever throw away a book)! I'm keeping them in a safe place until my toddler learns that books are not objects to be tuned in to confetti.

My husband is a full time dad, and a full time eBay seller extraordinaire. This week, we're offering a lucky reader a $10 gift certificate & free shipping to his eBay children's section. Elliott has over 200 vintage children's books and coloring books, almost all priced from $5-10. His selection is VAST...from a Gremlins coloring book to a 1970 copy of Alice in Wonderland that was a bonus gift when buying a Folger's product! He's really got some amazing stuff! Go take a look under the umbrella...but before you do that, sign the Mr. Linky, and leave us a comment about your favorite book from childhood! That's all it takes to win! The contest will end next Tuesday, July 3.

If you don't have a blog, never fear! Leave your email address in the Mr. Linky like this, or email us your info:

Good Luck!

And if you've not already entered, be sure to sign up to win one of four organizers we're giving away! The Busy Body Book give away ends this Saturday, June 30!

Steph at the AIB still has her summer sling giveaway running. That contest ends on Thursday, so you still have a day to enter. GET OVER THERE! : )

Laura and I have been SWAMPED with life priorities lately. Laura has projects at work that need attention and I am in the process of selling my town home, so things may be a little "slow" going until we both have a chance to take a breath. Stick with us! We have some AWESOME giveaways coming up that you won't want to miss! A great way to stay in touch with us is to subscribe to our blog! You can do that over to your right. The emails are a little delayed, like maybe a day but that still gives you time to enter contests since we generally run them for about a week.

Remember...don't keep it quiet! Spread the wurd! (that was lame, I know) : )
