MAKE classified ads and Maker Shed give-aways


Don’t forget, folks, MAKE classified ads are closing soon for Volume 18. We’ve extended the deadline to this Friday, April 3rd. So if you want to place an ad, here’s your chance (and to be eligible for the $100-worth of Gift Certificate giveaways).

We’re excited about our Make: MINImarketplace section, which premiered in MAKE, Volume 17. Got something cool you want to sell, have a service to offer fellow readers, looking for some precious widget that only another maker might have stashed away in the garage? The Make: MINImarketplace offers a place for you to reach the maker community for a very reasonable price.

Our first deadline for materials is April 3rd, so act quickly, if you want a spot.

And we have a drawing to encourage folks to sign up for more information. If you email and ask for more info on classifieds, you’ll automatically be entered to win one of three Maker Shed gift certificates. We will be giving away two $25 Maker Shed Gift Certificates and one $50 Certificate to three people drawn from the list. Our ad deadline is fast approaching — April 3rd — for placing the ad and for the Gift Certificate giveaway. Act now! Robot operators are standing by!

    I tried e-mailing the address but my e-mail bounces because the receipt server thinks my address is from Spammers. Any way to rectify this?

    Thank you,

    So sorry for the hassle. Not sure what’s going on there. I sent email to find out if it’s on our end.

    In the meantime, I’ve sent your address on to Sheena, who’s doing our ads. She’ll contact you.

    If anyone else has trouble using that address, just send email to me at gareth AT and I’ll forward it on.
