Towards the end of February, online users were asked to vote in several categories for the 2012 Readers' Choice Awards on About.com. Bonanza was nominated for two categories. The first category was "Your Favorite Spot to Sell Vintage Collectibles," and the second category was "Your Favorite Spot to Shop for Vintage Collectibles." Voting was limited to one vote per person each day and Bonanza was going up against such heavies as eBay and Etsy among other finalists (Tias, Zibbet, and Ruby Lane). The polls closed on March 21st, 2012 and the votes were tallied and we are happy to report that Bonanza was once again voted by About.com readers as the top "Favorite Spot to Sell Vintage Collectibles" receiving 39% of the vote. This is the second year in a row that Bonanza has received this award. Bonanza also captured a respectable 32% of the votes for "Favorite Spot to Shop for Vintage Collectibles," which was enough votes to take second place in this category (there was only a 5% difference in votes between 1st and 2nd place (Congrats Tias). Now in its fifth year, the About.com Readers' Choice Awards honor the best products, features and services across more than a dozen categories, ranging from technology to hobbies to parenting and more, as selected by its readers.
A big "Thank you" to everyone in the Bonanza community for doing your part to make Bonanza awesome. In case you are wondering, we have already requested that About.com add a category for the best use of Cats in eCommerce. Meowww!
