Winner: Christopher Franco

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Three weeks ago we had a surprise giveaway. I simply asked our readers to tell me how they discovered Sweet Station. The response was great and immediate. Christopher Franco was picked as the winner by the true random number generator. He's a 4th year double major in Rhetoric & Computer Science studying at U.C Berkeley. He helps run a graphic design organization on campus, Innovative Design, as a Design team leader and the VP of External and the VP of Marketing. And did I mention, HE CAN DANCE?! (Watch video at 2:39) "I love the package, the wrapping -ALL THE STICKERS. So many stickers!!! I'll probably give one to my friend Shefali who introduced me to your website. The USB is very useful- I appreciate you for giving away such an item", said Franco.

Marchi Mobile eleMMent RV

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Check out this futuristic luxury RV (Recreational Vehicle) from Marchi Mobile. 'The slightly strange-looking RV is based on the strikingly futuristic truck designs of Luigi Colani. Like Colani’s trucks, the eleMMent RV sports some truly crazy looks and over-the-top parts. The 38-foot-long, 13.5-foot-tall RV boasts around 500 square feet of usable interior area, making it larger than some apartments. The push of a single button causes a large “sky bar” to rise from the top of the vehicle, letting residents and guests party under the stars in style.' Link here. Photobucket Photobucket
