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.
