My mom once won a single chair at my school. Luckily we came by car. But the chair didn't match quite well with the rest of our interior, so it's now a hallstand in my parent's bedroom...
I haven't won anything I couldn't really use. My grandmother has though, she enters every contest she ever sees even for stupid things she'll never used its kind of funny actually. But once she won a camping set with a tent sleeping bags and a little stove. The last thing she'll ever use. Luckily she has a son, who also has sons, that loves camping!
well there's always e-bay for those unwanted prizes, or give to charity.
I went to a glass museum and won one of their glassware they showing/exhibiting how to make glass as a prize. It's the ugliest orange striped vase type thing i've ever seen.
i fill in a contest on the net "how many people ar ansering the right question"
i was 200 off and won a philips webcam.
I once won a balloon contest... I won a carpet like thing I had to make myself (I had to make special knots with a small thread in a cloth like thing)... It was lying in my closet for 10 years and I threw it alway last year....
I won a raffle last week, got the ugliest sweatshirt I've ever seen.
Way back when I was in college a friend of mine entered a pool tournament sponsored by a newly opened local tattoo parlor. The first place prize was a $100 certificate towards a tattoo. He won, even though he had no plans to get a tattoo, nor could he have gotten one without risking having his (wealthy and conservative) parents cut him off. He ended up selling it to me for $25, which worked out cause I was saving for a new tat anyway, and he was at the end of his allowance for the month... poor little rich kid. I don't know why he even entered the tournament. For bragging rights I guess.
i once won a jello eatting contest... sad part was.. the prize was jello
jello = not good in great quantity
I once won $7. I think I bought another lottery ticket with my winnings.
The most i won was like 15$ and i won it on my birthday! yay! but i cant remember what i did with the money
Two tickets to a movie theather chain. Only problem was their nearest theather was a one hour drive away. Gave the tickets to someone that lived closer to one.
A friend of mine won lasik (is that how you spell it?) eye surgery. Granted, it was a prize for a hospital fundraiser...but still, it seemed odd. Especially because her eyesight is just fine. I think she's trying to trade it in for a Louis Vuitton purse.
I won jam at a beer festival.
Not entirely sure why they had jam as a prize at a beer festival but there you go!
