Default June Fab Shop Hop

I thought I had found all the bunnies until I checked the members area. There is one Blue Bamboo shop I can't find the bunny! I can find the May one but not the June one. Has anyone found the June bunny at this shop? I am not asking for you to tell me where it is . Just want to know if anyone found it!
Also have not found the 2 alternative blocks. Now what? I've gone through all the shops. I know they cycle , I guess I have to go through all 130+ shops again to find them! Is there anyway of doing that without getting all the registration letters in my inbox?

Good luck. I have pretty much stopped doing the Shop Hops, just because of the "cycling" bunnies. I really don't even have time to go through 130+ shops ONE time ( but have been know to sacrifice sleep to do so) and then having to go back for a second go around - well that is just too crazy for me!!

I was on the Shop Hop site & it says - Not available-Blue Bamboo so I guess the shop is not participating

Shops are marked "not available" when they've signed up for the Hop but not yet reported the location of their found it bunny to the Fab Shop Hop organization. Could be they are away or are having trouble getting their website updated.

You might want to wait a few days and check back to see if the "not available" flag has been removed.

The blocks should have popped up when you found the bunny. Check the membership area and shops visisted and each block will be listed that was in that shop. I too am one that quit the hop because I don't have time to visit all those shops and I get frustrated if I can't find the bunny after going to every page of their shop.
Hope you find the ones you missed!

I gave up the Shop hop after they upped how many bunnies you need to find- and the moving patterns, etc... just not enough time

Somebody already answered the question on Blue Bamboo.

Re: emails - I use Outlook and set up a rule that emails from the email address confirming registration go right to my deleted mail.

I enjoy the hop and found that most sites have decent clues so the bunnies are easy to find. Those that don't have clues generally put the bunny on the newsletter page. Several others that don't have clues usually always have the bunny on the same page of the site so I've made notes of those so I don't spend a lot of time. If I can't find the bunny in a reasonable amount of time on a newly participating site - a couple of minutes or less, I leave the shop and come back in a week or so. I'm sure they'll have heard from some frustrated bunny-hunter and add a clue.

If a site doesn't have the current month's colored bunny on the main page, I wait a few days and check later.

Just my thoughts.

I've never "done the hop"... I'm sure that the shops participate so that they get new shoppers to at least take a quick peek at there store.

It sounds like the hop is pretty time-consuming. I know there's a prize... but ... is it enough fun for you, to justify the time spent hopping? Do you ever find a new store that you like, or buy anything while hopping?

I've won $10 gift certs without completing the entire hop. I like to sit and hunt bunnies in spare time. I don't stress if I don't find them all or any for that matter. My granddaughter likes to "play the bunny game" and sometimes she can even find a few on her own (what luck..she can't read yet!!). Some shops make it very difficult, some extremely easy. I will say a $10 GC doen't get you much anymore! But its better than a sharp stick in your eye!
