St. Patrick's Day Treasure Hunt March 17th 2021

We got an email from Brendan the Leprechaun saying he wants to put his business on our site! He explained that 2020 was a horrible year for Brendan’s Bróigín, his shoe-fixing business. Because of quarantine, no one left the house. The fairies still danced their jigs all night long, but now they were doing it virtually. They had Zoom Dance Parties. The soft carpets and flooring in their comfy homes were not tearing up their shoes the way the forest floor quickly did.

I told him I was sorry to hear that, but I had to politely decline. I explained our site is for small businesses in Lakeland, Florida only. We cannot take him as he resides in Ireland and is a big corporation - Brendan’s Bróigín serves most of the fairies and leprechauns in all of Ireland, Scotland, and England! Many mom-and-pop shops couldn’t compete. They were forced to sell to him, or down right close.

Well, Brendan the Leprechaun wasn’t too happy to hear my response, and he has invaded our site! Leprechaun magic is strong and is no match for Mike’s computer wizardry. If we don’t get him and his workers off our site by tomorrow at 6:30 pm, they will be stuck there for good!

Brendan is tricky and hasn’t made this easy! He has taken his 4 best employees and hidden them all over our website! BUT - He also made copies of each so there will be 16 total leprechauns causing havoc! Leprechauns always try to lure you with their pot of gold, and they have hidden one in a good spot to tempt you! This will serve as a Wild Card!

The rules are simple –Visit our website www.ekimsplace.com to search for Brendan’s four employees. There are four images of each employee. You can either find four of one employee, or one of each. There is also a wild card – a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! This can count for any employee. Once you have four images – all of one employee, or one of each employee - send screen shots or type out specific locations where you’ve found the Leprechauns, via Facebook messenger, Instagram messenger, or email ekimsplace@gmail.com.

The winner will get three gift cards totaling $100! $50 to The Lakeland Farmer’s Market, $25 to Molly McHugh's Irish Pub, and $25 to Bungalow Boutique & Gifts.

Participants will have their name entered to win a $25 gift card to Hand & Stone Massage & Facial Spa.
