enter to win

On October 25, Utopia will celebrate its 1st anniversary! We so appreciate your support over this last year and the community you’ve helped build around this store.

In celebration (and in hopes of learning a little more about you and the magic you help create) we’re doing a $250 Utopia Gift Certificate Give Away. Here are the rules to enter the drawing:

1. Take a picture of yourself wearing or with one of you favorite items purchased from Utopia.

2. Post your picture here (Utopia Facebook page) and list three reasons why you like shopping at the store.

3. Share the post with your friends.

Everyone who does this between now and October 25 will be entered into the drawing. You can post as many times as you want, as long as the product you’re wearing or showing is different, and you will get another entry for each posting.

If you have questions or want help with your post, give us a call at 428-0024 or drop by the store.


utopia imageAs we move into the new year, we’re contemplative. What is it that we want? What is it that fulfills us? What goals do we set for ourselves? What defines utopia?

So we decided to hold a contest. We are looking for original definitions and illustrations of utopia — not the store, but the state of mind or imagined place.

You may submit a short essay, poem, sentence, or other creative verbiage or a drawing, painting, photograph, or other 2 dimensional work.

1st place will receive a $100 gift certificate to the store. 2nd place will receive a $50 gift certificate, and 3rd place will receive a $25 gift certificate. All winners will be promoted in our newsletter and the La Tienda newsletter, on Facebook, and on our websites. In addition, the best illustrations and definitions will be published in our 1st Utopia Anthology.

To enter, send your definition or illustration to All entries will be judged by a blind and independent panel of artists, writers, and community members. Submission deadline is February 15, 2014. Contest winners will be announced March 1st. If under 18, please include a letter of parental consent.
