Oozak Giveaway!

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 πŸ˜‰ 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!

I did make that graphic correctly, 4! Β Rusty has a very wide variety of stuff at his store and you can win a bit of it!

To enter to win yourself one, all you have to do is hop over to the Oozak Facebook page, Like it and tell them I sent you then comment here telling me that you did. Easy Peasy!

You can enter thru Oct 31st and I’ll announce the winnerS here on November 5th!

Good Luck! Don’t forget to check out the Oozak Blog for lots of fun challenges and posts!

    I never knew Ooazak was Kazoo backwards, thank you!! Now, new request is how do you say that word? I kind of say it like ” Ooo a Zack!” Like some silly highschool girl who…likes a boy named Zack.

I would love to win one of their GC! Have you seen the stamp I will link below? I think it would be adorable with a soggy squirrel!……where did that squirrel go?


    • Kristy says:

      You’re close! Say Oozak like “ooZACK” πŸ™‚ or Kazoo as “K-zoo” πŸ˜‰ You’re right, that stamp would be awesome with the squirrel from Nutsy Kaylee! How fun!
