After reviewing all of the amazingly creative & compelling video entries in our 25th Anniversary Share the Adventure Giveway, we have chosen our winner of a trip to Thailand: Crystal McLain!
Crystal is an artist and massage therapist from Bristol, Maine, who wants to explore & get inspired by Thai art, learn Thai massage, and explore Buddhist philosophies in the temples of Thailand. We love her travel philosophy & the awesome painting she created to illustrate her plans! Congratulations Crystal!
As well as winning the experience of a lifetime, Crystal also received two amazing backpacks from our friends at L.L. Bean (seriously; we’re jealous!), and a whole stack of travel guides from the awesome folks at Lonely Planet, so she can plan her adventure with great advice from well-seasoned travelers and take on her journey in style! We’ll be traveling with Crystal in February, and we can’t wait to see what this adventure brings!
Check out the sweet video that won the contest & our hearts:
Two other entrants made videos that were SO great that we had to give them the Runner’s Up award: Kali Bailey, a talented 23 year-old videographer, and Brendan McQuillen and Brady Hatch of Morning Dew Farm, one of the awesome local farms in our hometown of Newcastle! They will each be receiving a $100 gift card to Mexicali Blues so they can share in a Mexicali Blues shopping adventure!
Honorable Mentions, each getting a $50 gift card to shop with us are:
Leonard and Gabrielle Pouder “Our Mexicali Blues Family”
Samantha Kelly “Miles to Go? Smiles to Go!”
Mary and Jim Wilkins “Thai Yoga or Bust”
Congratulations to the winners, and a huge THANK YOU to all who entered & everyone who has been celebrating 25 years of Mexicali with us! We are consistently awed and inspired by the creativity and all-around awesomeness of our customers! You ROCK!
