The Windsor Green Box
The 4th annual hunt for the Green Box is taking place and beginning on Friday, October 30th. Quite a few of you already take part in the event, but here is a recap for what happens and how you can play.
For 8 weeks we hide a Green Box somewhere in the CSRA. Once a week it is hidden, if you find the box you get a specific piece of jewelry for the week that is valued at $1500 or more. These boxes are not easy to find, many locals try to find them, but only a few succeed. It’s quite a badge of honor to find the Green Box. In the past, the Green Box has been mostly found in areas that have held some sort of local significance. That will not always be the case. Even though the clues could reference history or relevance related to a privately owned location, the box will not be on private property. If the property is not publicly owned, the location will be legally accessible to the public. If a box is found within 24hrs of the first clue for the week, another box will be placed out.
How do you play? Once a box is out, we’ll give daily clues until some lucky person finds it. You can find the first clue every Friday starting on Oct. 30, 2020 via facebook, our website or we can send the clue straight to your email address if you submit it below. Even if you signed up before we ask that you sign up once again (we have a better form this year.) Also, Windsor will not be open on Sunday, November 1st, 2020 - so there will be no clue in advance on that Sunday.
Get the Green Box Daily Clue emailed to You.
You'll receive the daily clue to your inbox each day, prior to being posted on social media until each weekly box is found. Once you submit your email we'll need at least 24hrs to get your address onto the list.
Again, this is for the daily clue, the "day in advance clue" will still require you to come into the store. You can learn more about the "day in advance clue" by reading the information below.
Here’s the cool part that you really do not want to miss, each week features a different jewelry designer that we carry in our store (the designer corresponds with the piece being given away that week). If you come into the store (We do ask that you wear a mask at this time.) and try on a piece from that designer, we give you the clue for next day in advance. Come in each day, get the next day’s clue. Please don’t think that you need to purchase something when you come in for the clue, we consider it an opportunity for you to meet and interact with our team. Many boxes are found by box hunters that come in for that clue in advance.
Rules: Every game has a few rules, our rules are listed below. 1.) Only one box can be found per household family, per year. 2.) No taking photos of the in-store clue. 3.) Be kind and respectful to places that you search and the people around you. 4.) We don’t tolerate bickering/complaining/accusing on our social media regarding the event.
Tips: The vast majority of our staff do not know the box’s location, though it is kind to offer them things in exchange for information… it will not help. That includes contacting the store for more details regarding a clue or messaging us online. Our hiding places will not put box hunters in danger, but please use caution and be careful. If we give an extra clue, like a general area that the box can be found, it will be publicly announced.
