Giveaway: Southern Women's Show tickets!

Posted April 19, 2013



I have 2 more tickets to give away for the Southern Women's Show taking place next weekend at the NC State Fairgrounds! The show runs this year from Friday, April 26 to Sunday, April 28, 2013.


To enter to win the set of two tickets, leave a comment below sharing your favorite type of booth to visit at the show. Do you like the clothes, the food, the jewelry or the makeup? Or maybe the The Firefighter Fashion Show is your reason for attending!

I will randomly pick the winner of the 2 tickets on Monday, April 22 at 11:00 AM and will post the winning username soon after 11:00. Good luck!

I'll be teaching a coupon class at the show once on Friday at 1:00 pm and once on Saturday at 1:00 pm. On Sunday at 1:30 pm, I'll be on the cooking stage with cookbook author, Lisa Shively, whipping up a frugal dish and chatting about meal planning in our game show/cooking class called "Let's Bake a Deal!". With a title like that, you know there are some fun AND prizes involved!

I will also be at the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom/Out and About booth all day on Saturday (except when I am teaching from 1 - 2 pm). Look for the WRAL booth and you'll find the Smart Shopper/Go Ask Mom booth right next to it.

As always, the event has fashion shows (including one with fire fighters!), shopping, lots of food, free samples, coupons, cooking shows, celebrity guests and so much more!

You can see all the show information on the Southern Women's Show website.

    I think just the good fellowship with all the women and getting to try new things, and see what new trends are coming our way!

    I like the food samples...always looking for something different. Also like the booths that have unique items.

  • cbest55 Apr 22, 2013

    I like the make-up booths to try new make-up. I never have time to do this at the mall. I also like the samples and just having a day to do something for myself.
