The certificates cannot be traded for cash. You hand them the $25 gift certificate as payment and then they turn it in to a C.F.E. staff member to be reimbursed the $25. The $25 certificate will be treated like cash. Therefore if change is due to the customer, the vendor will give them their change in cash.

How do you play:
All you have to do is visit our Creative Finds Events facebook page, share the event photo, invite your local family & friends or spread the word in other festive & happy ways.  Have them VISIT the facebook page and just do two quick things:
