Hi! Kristy here with another giveaway for you! If you’re in the US or Canada and you’ve bought Copics OR you’ve been one of many people who have emailed me and asked where I buy my goods OR you’ve taken my Copic class (Created from Color) then you probably know all about the person who is giving away some awesome Gift Certificates to his shop! He has a big heart, that he might try to deny with sarcasm laced emails at 6am, but its still there. Yup, today I have a giveaway for you from Rusty Gorter at Oozak.com
Here’s a bit about Oozak and the one man show…
Oozak.com was started in August 2004 by Rusty Gorter. Rusty had worked for a family owned art supply store in Kalamazoo (Wheaton Art Supply) for 10 years. Unfortunately, Wheaton closed in July 2004 due to the local economy. He had to do something, so he used his contacts in the Art & Engineering fields and started an eBay Store mainly selling equipment. From there Oozak.com was built into a website featuring all the brands that we carry.
Most of the time, Oozak.com is a 1 man operation. It used to be a 3 man and 1 woman operation, but times are tough and the economy is definitely felt when you sell items that are wants and not needs. The “1 Man Operation” is Rusty. Born in 1970, is married with 2 young children.
Want a piece of trivia? You know you do ;) Oozak isn’t just a weird name… well it is but we all love him anyway… oozak is kazoo backwards, kazoo is short for Kalamazoo where the store is located. Kalamazoo, MI is also my hometown and I used to shop at the store Rusty worked at but didn’t put 2+2 together until a couple years ago, small world. Now do you feel a little sherlock holmes-y? Trivia is fun.
Now for the Giveaway!
