Nelson Star publisher Karen Bennett joined Chapman on her Saturday morning shopping spree as  she purchased several new items for herself and a few Christmas gifts, including a big surprise for her mom. A new winter jacket, three pairs of leather boots and shoes, leggings and boot socks, jewelry, a gift certificate and an espresso machine were among Chapman’s many purchases made in less than 33 minutes.

Shoppers entered their names at one of the twenty-three participating merchants and Chapman’s name was pulled from the massive bunch of entries. Chapman was able to browse at her leisure prior to the spree to select her purchases where she was able to spend a maximum of $400 at each business.
