Win tickets to the Junior League's A Shopping Spree!

If you like to shop, then the Junior League of Raleigh's A Shopping SPREE is for you! The 28th annual event is a great place to get a jump start on your holiday shopping.

More than 140 exhibitors from across the country will fill up the Raleigh Convention Center from Oct. 21 to Oct. 24 to showcase their jewelry, fashions, accessories, home decor and more. The event supports the Junior League and its programs.

General admission passes are $10 each and are good for all four days of shopping. But I have six passes to give away. And they not only let you shop all four days, but also get you into special early morning shopping from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Oct. 21 before the general public enters!

So I'm going to give away three pairs of tickets.

What do you need to do to win?

There are three ways you can enter and you can do one or all:.

1. Follow @wralmoms on Twitter and retweet about the contest.

2. Sign up for our email newsletter by clicking here.

3. Answer the following sentence in the comments below: I finish my holiday shopping ... (For me, the answer is usually about two days before Christmas).

This contest ends at noon Oct. 11. Three winners will be picked at random. Their user names will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. Oct. 11 and an email will be sent. Winners must respond by noon Oct. 15 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

The winners are: keberle3, md2denc and evettecarp. Check your emails and get back to me!

    I give gifts like memberships, Heifer International animal gifts to poor countries, Smile Train donations in relatives' names, etc. Try to buy other "stuff" early on. Makes shopping less stressful and it gives to more than just my family and friends.

    I usually finish my shopping two days before Christmas but this year I plan to get started and finish earlier to enjoy time with family at home.
