What is a BNE?
This is a thread where when you Buy in - you are Entered to win one of 5 prizes! Every 2 weeks we will start with 16 new shops that will be donating prizes. Every other Friday night there will be a BNR Treasury, and the 4 winners will be chosen. Four winners will each receive one prize from 4 different shops.

There will also be a "Grand Prize" at the end of each month. I will pick a winner from all the shops that have made purchases during the month, and also include the Prize Shops. That winner will get a surprise gift worth at least $20 from me.


How do you enter to win a prize?
*Purchase from one of the Curators = 3 entries
*Purchase from one of the 16 Prize shops = 2 entries
*Purchase from a shop on the Buyers List = 1 entry

If you purchase more than one item from the shop - you get more entries - one entry per item purchased.
I will be keeping track of all the purchases on a spreadsheet and at the end of the BNR Raffle Treasury (Feb. 11), and using to pick the winners.


1. NO MINIMUM (PIF's do not count)
2. Comment with the transaction link
3. Wait for the curator's to add you to the Buyers List.
4. Please help promote!

The curators will add your shop to the Buyers List as soon as we can. Please Do Not add your own shop to the list. We will be checking in during the day, but don't worry, if we haven't been around for a bit - we didn't forget about you :)

The BNR Raffle Treasury will be held on Friday February 11 from 7pm - 10pm Etsy time. During the BNR treasury there will be more chances to gain entries, to chat & meet some of the great shops that have donated prizes.

*The link to the BNR Raffle Treasury will be posted here one hour before it starts.
*If you would like to be in the next BNE Raffle (Jan. 28 - Feb 11) - please convo me.
*I will be starting an email list of shops/people that would like to be notified when the BNE & BNR Raffle Treasury opens. If you would like to be on the email list - please convo me with your email address.
