TOOL SHED 10th BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAYS
The Tool Shed turns 10 years old this December! To celebrate, we'll be giving away prizes all month from some of our favorite manufacturers.
How can I win one of these fabulous prizes, you ask? Easy! You can stop in the store and sign up in person (because we love seeing you), or you can sign up via an easy online form.
You must enter by 8PM Central Time on December 19 to be eligible. Winners are drawn at random, and notified by email. You will have one week to claim your prize (if you live far away we will arrange shipping with you, if you live local we will arrange pickup); unclaimed prizes will be awarded to another winner at random. One entry per person, one prize per person, per week. No purchase necessary! U.S. residents only.
We'll do a newsletter announcing new prizes and a new drawing for every week during December, so you'll have lots of chances to win. We're giving away over 30 items! Awesome prizes include items from quality manufacturers including Aslan Leather, Crystal Delights, Doxy, Fuze Silicone, Fun Factory, Lelo, njoy, SpareParts Hardware, Tantus, and Vixen Creations. Prizes will be announced each Monday during December.
ABOUT THIS WEEK'S PRIZES
Crystal Delights is committed to designing and producing the very best products possible, out of the very best materials, with a demanding commitment to quality and attention to detail. Countless hours go into the research and development of their products, while keeping quality of materials used, safety and enjoyment, and of course the beauty of the glass and its adornments at the forefront of their process.
The mission of the Fun Factory founders was to develop sex toys which fulfilled high standards by providing quality and functionality combined with fun and sensuality. Fun Factory loves its products, and they control every detail seriously. Only 100% medical grade silicone and body-friendly plastics are used in manufacturing. Developed, produced, controlled, stored, and managed on the premises of the 1996-founded company, everything is “Made in Germany” from the seed of the idea to the final detail.
Vixen Creations has been a premier manufacturer of 100% silicone sex toys since 1992. The platinum-grade silicone used for their special "VixSkin" blend has a high degree of flexibility and resists tearing, as well as an incredibly realistic feel. VixSkin toys are some of the most popular items we sell at the Tool Shed, and they are worth every penny! All Vixen products are handcrafted and designedin the USA.
