Holiday Passport Contest

Shop 10 to Win $1,000!

Give your community the gift of buying local this holiday season, and help Keep Louisville Weird!


How to Win

1. Shop local! Collect receipts when you shop or dine this holiday season at ten LIBA member businesses (INCLUDING YOUR BUSINESS NAME) between 11/6/2009 and 1/5/2010.

2. Present them for review at one of the sponsor sites, Wild and Woolly Video or ear X-tacy. Once your your receipts are verified, you’ll be entered into a drawing for $1,000 to spend at any member business!


See www.keeplouisvilleweird.com for full details and entry forms (OR PICK UP A DIRECTORY AND ENTRY FORM AT ANY YOUR BUSINESS NAME LOCATION)!


The mission of LIBA is to preserve the unique community character of the Metro Louisville area by promoting locally-owned businesses and to educate citizens on the value of shopping locally.


Dollars spent at community-based merchants (such as YOUR COMPANY NAME HERE) also creates a multiplier effect in the local economy. Studies have shown that for every $100 spent at a chain, only $15 remains in the community. But spending $100 at a home town business keeps $45 in the community. And when you want to find a gift that’s truly unique this holiday season, independent businesses are the place to go.


The members of LIBA are about personal attention, a focus on customer service, the pleasure of shopping alongside friends and neighbors, and keeping local dollars within our local economy. When you shop local businesses, we all win! And this holiday season, you can add one more reason to shop locally: a chance to win $1,000 to spend at any LIBA member business.

A few words about Nanz & Kraft, from our customers.

At Nanz & Kraft Florists, we feel very lucky to have a fabulous array of customers! As we touch lives everyday with the joy of gifts or flowers, we love hearing the stories about the emotions we send!

Here are a few testimonials about our products as we hear back from happy customers!
Thanks to all who suppport Nanz & Kraft Florists!

“This past week I sent a “pick me up” to a co-worker who was down in the dumps and the card read:

You are awesome! From a Secret Admirer.

The lovely arrangement arrived mid week and she talked about it every chance she got. (My co-worker feels invisible and somewhat unappreciated, yet she is the first impression every visitor sees when entering our beautiful new building.) She is super efficient, vivacious (petite) and quite attractive! Grinning broadly, she stopped by my office as she left for the weekend. It seems she was certain I was her secret admirer…do you think it was because this darling Soda Shoppe Sundae arrangement was from Nanz & Kraft and my devotion to N & K is widely known!! Thanks for helping me brighten someone’s day!”

Just wanted to say how beautiful the flowers were you designed for the Bacon wedding at our chapel in June. They made our reception hall even more beautiful. We will highly recommend you in the future to our brides.
