‘Tis the Season… For Freebies!

At 815 Media, we recently finished our first “Freebie” giveaway.  We gave away an Apple iPad 2 as our grand prize, and also dished out some t-shirts, too.  Not only was this a fantastic way to introduce our company to people here in the Illinois Valley, and elsewhere, but we enjoyed seeing how surprised and excited the winners were, too.  At 815, we like to think that we do things a little differently, and to the best of our knowledge, nobody around here has ever done anything like this.  Congratulations again to our winners – we hope you’ll enjoy your new freebies!  To those who weren’t as lucky this time around, keep your chin up!  We plan on doing something like this again in the future.  If you missed out completely on this giveaway the first time around, make sure you sign up for our email newsletter, and “Like” us on Facebook.  Don’t worry – we won’t send you spam – we promise.

As the end of 2011 draws near, we want to pass along our sincere well wishes to you and yours.  We appreciate you supporting 815 Media, and look forward to a terrific new year ahead!  We have some great stuff planned for 2012, so stay tuned for more details!

Discovering Art at Annies Little Pots

A few months ago, we began work on developing and designing a new website for Annies Little Pots.  We were excited to get moving on this project, because Annies is such a unique store for this area.

For those unfamiliar with Annies Little Pots, it’s located in Princeton, IL, right on Main Street, in the Princeton Art District.  As soon as you enter this beautifully restored 1880’s building, you’ll be greeted with all sorts of wonderful findings, including hand-made art from Central Illinois,  a wide variety of metal sculptures for your home and garden – trellises, arbors, plant stands, critters, and more!  The gallery also features beautiful original paintings, photography, jewelry, purses, and greeting cards.  All of the pottery is created by Ann Dittmer in her studio on-site.
