Hello and welcome to the start of another week, and of course… Think Tasmania competition time! Today we offer a chance to win Thrifty, a handmade hobby horse. Thrifty comes to us courtesy of Laura Hayers from I Felt Like It (another stall-holder from Flourish Handmade Market). Laura simply contacted Think Tasmania to volunteer a prize so we could present her business to all our readers. How easy is that?

Valued at $75.00, Thrifty the Hobby Horse by Laura Hayers of I Felt Like It

Because I Felt Like It. Why Else?

Thrifty is just one of the many hobby horses available from I Felt Like It. He stands at just over a metre tall, and has been made with wool and corduroy; filled with anti-allergy filling, and has metal bells and plastic eyes. Valued at $75-00, Thrifty is attached to a painted wooden dowel and will no doubt provide hours of enjoyment for one lucky child.

Thrifty the Hobby Horse, a prize for Think Tasmania readers

At the conclusion of the random draw, Thrifty will be posted by Laura to any address in Australia. International readers are welcome to enter the competition, if they’re happy to pay for delivery themselves.

If you’re wondering about the business name, Laura Hayers struggled to choose a moniker when she launched her very first market stall, about four years ago. When asked why she made something, she replied… “because I felt like it”. It seemed an appropriate title, to incorporate the broad range of creations made in Laura’s hobby craft genre. For more information, follow I Felt Like It on Facebook, contact Laura by email or phone 0438 889 528.

As we’ve said before, the competition rules on Facebook are all too hard, so we’re going to keep this in-house. We’re also going to keep it REALLY simple. If you are subscribed to receive the free newsletter from Think Tasmania, you are eligible to enter. Apparently a random draw is still allowed in Tasmania without applying for a permit, so here’s what you need to do…

Step 1 – be a subscriber to the FREE newsletter from Think Tasmania*

Step 2 – leave a reply at the bottom of this article.


And that’s it! This will be a random draw, so comments won’t influence the outcome. But if you’d like to leave any feedback for Laura about the hobby horses from I Felt Like It, that would be really great. You could discuss your personal desire to win this prize, or even Think Tasmania… we’d love to hear it all, and we’ll be closely following all the comments. We won’t reply individually because that would upset the competition app (it might award us the prize!!).

I Felt Like It ~ Common Sense Please?

  • Leave a comment on this post by midnight 28th October 2013 (local time).
    We’ll choose a random winner using our website’s competition app.

    with a retail value of $75.00 is the one and only prize.
  • Fair and reasonable terms and conditions automatically apply.
    So one entry each (our app is able to detect multiple entries).
  • Please apply common sense to all aspects of this hobby horse
    competition… we’d hate to disqualify someone for being silly.
  • We won’t use your email address for anything sinister, because
    we firmly believe in doing the right thing. Always. Don’t you?
  • We’ll announce the winner’s name here, on Facebook and Twitter.
    We’ll also contact the winner by email, and advise Laura Hayers
    (the owner of I Felt Like It) of the competition results.


What else do we need to stipulate? Nothing? Okay… then it’s over to you. Comment away! We wish you all the very best of luck. And if you’d be kind enough to share this hobby horse competition with all your peeps, we’d be extremely happy. Besides showing a little friendly community spirit by spreading the joy, sharing will also no doubt lead to similar competitions in the future. And THAT can only be a good thing for everyone!!

*We ask that you subscribe to Think Tasmania for these competitions for several reasons. Of course we’d prefer any prizes go to dedicated followers; and we need to make sure we can contact the winners. What makes it to the Newsfeed of Facebook is a bit random, and not everyone even uses social media. Most people can receive an email however, so that’s our sure-fire way of reaching everyone. And finally, we like to share all the great things on offer in Tasmania with as many interested readers as possible – that’s our mission!
