It’s Wednesday! And that means it’s time to share our new mystery photo of the week plus reveal the winner of last week’s contest. First, let’s take a look at our new mystery photo. This one might have you scratching your head but, if you live in Barrington, chances are your feet walk this floor frequently. Can you guess where in Barrington we took this picture?
365Barrington writer and photographer, Kate Smith captured this week’s mystery photo and, at first, I thought it was a tricky one. But, within seconds of sharing the photo on our Instagram page, we had multiple correct guessers. So if you know the location, submit your guess below for a chance to win our latest prize which is somehow linked to the place where the photo was taken.
But first, we’re excited to announce the winner of last week’s mystery photo contest. We just drew her name and the winner is…. KAREN SCRUGGS! Karen correctly guessed that last week’s mystery photo was taken at the SweetSpot Candy Shop in Barrington, specializing in classic candy and ice cream.
Congratulations and thank you for entering our contest, Karen! Your prize is a $20 gift card to spend at the SweetSpot, where you can find all the sweet treats imaginable at 102 S. Hager Avenue in Barrington. Did you know the SweetSpot also offers a delicious selection of homemade ice cream and Italian ice? It’s a popular destination for treats like old fashioned malts, milk shakes, sundaes, banana splits, root beer floats, candy twisters, old fashioned snow cones and their soft serve ice cream machine is always calling my name.
