#GBPetey is Back in Greater Burlington

 

Greater Burlington’s Elf on the Shelf #GBPetey is back in Greater Burlington to help remind people to shop local this holiday season. 

For 21 days #GBPetey will be visiting a different business each day around Greater Burlington spreading holiday cheer and urging people to explore the many unique shops in our community.  He will be leaving clues to his location on the Greater Burlington Partnership’s Facebook, Twitter & Instagram pages.  Members of the public are invited to play along and guess #GBPetey’s location for a chance to win the weekly grand prize.  Every correct guess of #GBPetey’s location will be entered into a weekly drawing.  For additional entries, visit #GBPetey on-site at the business, take an “Elfie” and post it with #GBPetey on that day's riddle.  One winner will be chosen each week until #GBPetey returns to the North Pole on December 20. 

To follow along with the adventures of #GBPetey visit the Greater Burlington Partnership’s social media sites and shop local this holiday season.

Day 21: Where Am I? Wyatt's Body and Frame

🎄🎄🎄“If one of the reindeer run over something on Christmas Eve again, I need a go-to place to get the sleigh fixed quickly & q”Wyatt”ly. Thank goodness I found one. Because for every “Body” to get their presents that night, Santa has a strict time “Frame” he needs to follow.” #WhereIsGBPetey? 🎄🎄🎄

Day 20: Where Am I? The Broom Closet / Healing Haven

🎄🎄🎄“I’m so stressed about the family coming over for the holidays. I’ve already had to break out the “Broom”, empty the “Closet” for everyone’s coats & plan an amazing dinner! I really need to relax. Luckily I found a place with amazing massages & reflexology. After I visit there, I’m sure to be “Healing” better in no time. But I better hurry, I “Haven”t much time to spare!” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 19: Where Am I? Ivy Bake Shoppe and Cafe

🎄🎄🎄“Don’t mind me. I’m just testing which cookies Santa would like more. “Ivy”e tried about 10 so far and this one is “Bake”d the best. It’s a tough job, but somebodies got to do it.” #WhereIsGBPetey? 🎄🎄🎄

Day 18: Where Am I? Gyspi on Jefferson

🎄🎄🎄“Ladies, you won’t feel “Gyp”t by this store's selection of winter apparel. This glove will be so cozy when I’m wandering around. You just have to come in and “SI” for yourself!” #WhereIsGBPetey? 🎄🎄🎄

Day 17: Where Am I? Great River Gift Shop

🎄🎄🎄“A tisket, a tasket, this is a “Great” “Gift” basket. In fact, this “Shop” is full of beautiful & thoughtful gifts perfect for everyone. And the “Hospital”ity their staff show me was wonderful.” #WhereIsGBPetey? 🎄🎄🎄

Day 16: Where Am I? Burlington By The Book

🎄🎄🎄“Wow! They’ve made “Book”s about all my friends – Frosty, Grinch, Rudolph, Everyone! I’ll have to bring everyone with me next time I’m in “Burlington”. They’re not going to believe it!” #WhereIsGBPetey? 🎄🎄🎄

Day 15: Where Am I? Kempker's True Value

🎄🎄🎄“Santa’s sleigh needs a new coat of paint. What color should I get…red or green? “True” I love the red, but green is really growing on me. It’s been “Kemp”t red for a while, so time for a change!”🎄🎄🎄

Day 14: Where Am I? Martini's Grille

🎄🎄🎄“Cheers! Here is to good friends, great food, an amazing view & one delicious “Martini.” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 13: Where Am I?  Dunn Brothers Coffee

🎄🎄🎄“mmm…this smells so good. I think I’m “Dunn” exploring for the day. It’s time to kick up my feet & relax with a nice cup of joe.” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 12: Where Am I?  Dollhouse Dreams

🎄🎄🎄“Santa always has me on the lookout for new toy suppliers. Whether it’s a “Doll” for Suzy, a block “House” for Timmy, us elves could always use a little help! Luckily I found the perfect place! Their selection is better than I could have ever “Dream”ed.” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 11: Where Am I?  Original Cyns

🎄🎄🎄“There is “Cyn”ply nothing like snuggling up in a pile of snuggly sweaters. There are way too many cute styles to choose from. I need to throw out my “Original” plan and just get them all!” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 10: Where Am I?  Port of Burlington Welcome Center

🎄🎄🎄“I’ve never felt more “Welcome” in my life than when I stepped in here. There are tons of cool gift items “Center”ed around Greater Burlington & their super helpful volunteers help me find info on places all around Iowa!” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 9: Where Am I?  Hy-Vee #1 (Angular)

🎄🎄🎄“I’ve searched “Hy” & low for a great place to grab some veggies for the reindeer. No matter what “Angular” looking at it, with their brand new remodel this place will for sure be “#1” in my book.”🎄🎄🎄

Day 8: Where Am I?  Flint River Indoor Shooting Range

🎄🎄🎄Oh “Shoot”, I can’t believe I almost missed this place! This would be a perfect gift stop for a Hunter. They could even watch the deer “Range” about by the “Flint River”. 🎄🎄🎄

Day 7: Where Am I? Arby's

🎄🎄🎄“Like Buddy the Elf, I like to stick to the 4 main Elf Food groups, but I’m seriously considering adding another one….CURLY FRIES!” #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 4: Where Am I? Red Screen Door

🎄🎄🎄“I hope I don’t hit any “Red” lights on my way to the North Pole. I’ve got a truckload of a“Door”able home décor to deliver. Maybe I should call & let them know I’m on my way…hopefully, they won’t be “Screen”ing their calls this close to Christmas.”#WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 3: Where Am I? The Spa at Catfish Bend

🎄🎄🎄"Don't mind me, just looking at product while I wait for my massage. Hunting for great places to shop can be exhausting. So glad I found this place. It's "Spa"tacular with the perfect amount of pzazz." #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 2: Where Am I? Huffman's Farm & Home

🎄🎄🎄"There's no way you'll leave in a "Huff" after shopping here "man". They have way too much cool stuff. Although I don't get how they're able to fit a Yeti inside a can. I've seen Yetis...they're huge. Maybe they have a tool here that can do it..." #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄

Day 1: Where Am I?  CSky Boutique

🎄🎄🎄"Just had to stop in to one of my favorites to "C" the latest fashion & pick up some delicious wine. I can't wait to try this one. My expectations are "Sky" high!" #WhereIsGBPetey?🎄🎄🎄
