Our Lucky Winners!

Well, friends, the results are in, and pictured above are the winning “ballots” for our Randhurst Book contest, in the order in which they were drawn! Congratulations to Don Fields, Mel (of Ephemeraology fame), Pseudo3D, Mygypsynature and Anna Banana!

If each of you would email me your address at pleasantfamilyshopping(at)hotmail(dot)com, I’ll get your book packaged up and on its way to you!

In the very unlikely event I don’t hear from all of the winners in a reasonable time (say a week from now, give or take a few days), three runner-up names have been drawn.

My thanks to all 36 of you who entered the contest, for your very kind comments and your support of PFS. And a very special thanks to Greg Peerbolte, Executive Director of the Mount Prospect Historical Society (and author of the book) for his organization’s co-sponsorship of this event. 


  1. Congratulations to all the winners! (I didn't enter, since I already have a copy of the book!) Long live PFS!

  2. Congratulations to those who won a copy of the book!

  3. So sorry I missed the contest! Sounds like it was fun!!!

  4. So the Auntie Annie pretzel crumbles. I'll soak my troubles in a Orange Julius...if I can find an Orange Julius.

    ...and thank you for the opportunity! Congratulations to all the winners.

  5. Just found your website & we're really enjoying it. We are very interested in mid-century shopping, specifically Detroit area stores, such as Hudson's. We'd love if we saw more on the Detroit area, since it was a booming city before it fell & there is a lot of rich, interesting history there.

  6. Dave, I am SO excited to be one of the lucky 5! I got my book on Saturday, and had to blog about it today!
    Thank you again SO much! I love it! :D
