Easter Egg Hunt 2014 Winners

Easter Egg Hunt Wrapup

WOW, what a week! The 6th Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Lima Beads was egg-citing, eggs-hausting, and egg-ceptionally big. More eggs than ever were found by a record number of hunters, and we enjoyed all of the hilarious comments, e-mails, and facebook posts that poured in. And now, onto the important stuff… :)

Leaderboard Gift Certificates

Everyone that was on the Leaderboard at the end of the hunt gets a $20 Gift Certificate. Steve is sending out those e-mails today… if you’re on the Leaderboard, you’ll be getting yours in the next couple hours. It took a LOT of persistence to stay in the Top 100, and we admire you all!

The Grand Prize

The Grand Prize for a $250 Gift Certificate is awarded to one of the hunters in the Top 10 at the end of the contest by a random drawing. This year’s grand prize winner is…. Cynthia C! We drew her name out of a Twizzler container (we have a lot of those around here)… and you can check out the video on our facebook page. Congratulations, Cynthia! She hunted through thousands of pages from April 14th all the way up until the very end of the contest on Easter.

Fun Facts

This year, we had a record number of hunters searching for those little diabolical eggs all over our website. The first egg was found 4 minutes after the contest officially launched, and the very last egg was found at 11:59am Pacific time with only 10 seconds left before the contest ended. Talk about hunting until the last minute! The egg that was discovered the most was the one right on the home page (of course)… and all of the eggs were found at least once.

Thank You

We want to extend a sincere “Thank You” to everyone who hunted for eggs this year. We have a lot of fun putting it together, but you are the ones who make it all worth it. We know as well as anyone that time is very precious, and we’re honored that you chose to spend some of it (or, in many cases, a LOT of it) with us this week. THANK YOU!

    This was my third Easter egg hunt and I have to say that it gets better every year. I had so much fun looking for those eggs. Loved also that once I had found one, it had a check mark so I didn’t cover the same ground twice. Thanks Steve and your gang for the fun! Can’t wait for next year.

    This was the best egg hunt ever! :D I know this must be a LOT of work to organize, so thank you, thank you, thank you! Great fun and fabulous prizes! Lima rocks!

    Thank you Lima Beads for my gift certificate! and for the gifts that are on there way! Not even adhesive capsulitis was going to keep me away from searching and searching for those elusive eggs. In my years of participating in the egg hunt I never could make it to the top ten but the gift certificate for all those on the leaderboard was incentive to keep me going this year. Congrats to everyone who made it to the top ten and enjoy spending your hard earned top prize Cynthia C. Don’t know how y’all found all those eggs! Thanks again Lima Beads for another fun egg hunt.

    Though I did not spend as much time hunting eggs as in past years; I did fairly well at 86 eggs. It was a lot of fun watching the action. And I got some fun gifts too. You folks at LB are the best! Thanks for a great egg hunt.

  13. Cynthia C
    Cynthia C says:

    Thank you Lima Beads for another great Easter egg hunt! I’m still a bit stunned that my name was drawn for the Grand Prize. I almost gave up when I was number 11 on the Leaderboard but in the end I kept going and found my last two eggs in the final 45 minutes of the hunt. Since I loaded up my wish list during the hunt I shouldn’t have any trouble loading up my shopping bag with some great beads! Thanks again LB, and congratulations to everyone else who was on the leaderboard, and especially everyone else in the top 10.

    This was my first egg hunt and I truly enjoyed it! What a wonderful way for customers to view all of your products. I found so much stuff that I want and thanks again for the prizes…you guys are great! Congrats to the big winner and everyone on the leaderboard!

    CAS says:

    I only found 53 of those egg-asperating eggs this year, as a very busy work week cut seriously into my hunting time, but it was a blast as always. Steve (still “the man”) you amaze us each year with your egg hiding skills, Kevin and Ali, thank you for making this the site I go to everyday, you are the very best. Congratulations to all who stuck it out to become the eggs-cellent hunters on the leaderboard. Next year awaits!

    Congratulations to everyone who was on the leaderboard! THAT had to take sincere time and dedication! As I see it, we’re all winners because everyone walked away with something and we all got to find lots of goodies besides eggs, right? (I know I did!)
    Thanks Lima Team!

    Thank you for the great egg hunt! This is my second year and I made it to the leaderboard! That wasn’t easy, but the most difficult part is yet to come – deciding what to get with my gift certificate! Congrats to all and can’t wait for the next hunt.

    Okay, how many of us tried to click the eggs in this week’s email?
