Count it up Contest!

That's right-- we're having a contest! To make the inventory process a bit more, er, interesting, we've decided to run a contest! What's the prize? $10 gift certificate to one of our stores!

So waddaya hafta do?  Watch our face book page here:  http://www.facebook.com/HappyUpInc
We'll post a pic of something we have to count.  The person who's guess is the closest to the inventory count without going over, wins the gift certificate!  Guessing will close 24 hrs after the picture is posted and we'll announce the winner.  Only one guess per person, please.

We'll post a picture for each store as we work on inventory, so there are three chances to win!  And if you your guess is the winner once, you're out of the running for the rest of the inventory contests.

Good luck!
