From Entries to Insights: Exploring the Results of Our Sweepstakes

Spring Sweepstakes

Over the month of April, participants from Canada and USA entered our spring sweepstakes, hoping to snag exciting prizes and be part of something special. At stake where a chance to win one of 3 vintage Lehmann wind-up tin birds! They are a great collectible piece and are new old stock (NOS). Made in Western Germany during 1970s. You can see them in action on our YouTube channel.

Lehmann is a well-known old toy company. It was founded in 1881 by Ernst Paul Lehmann in Brandenburg, Germany. The company gained fame for its high-quality tinplate toys, particularly its wind-up mechanical toys and model trains.

It’s been a week since the sweepstakes concluded, and now we’re ready to explore the data behind the entries. We’ll be delving into the details, uncovering key insights regarding our initial question, and mapping out participant demographics.

To begin, let’s explore the question we asked our sweepstakes participants: What factors influence your decision to purchase an antique: (1) historical significance, (2) aesthetic appeal, or (3) investment potential? Why?

At World Class Antiques, we continuously seek to gain a deeper and more thorough understanding of the perspectives of antique collectors and dealers alike. By doing so, we can refine our marketplace offerings and provide even better service to our valued customers. Now, let’s examine the reports derived from the responses of our sweepstakes participants:

Throughout the month of April, spanning its 30 days, we documented a total of 4085 entries. Participants were permitted to enter multiple times over the duration of the sweepstakes but were restricted to one entry per day according to the rules. The sweepstakes were opened to Canada and USA only.
