Shopping spree a whirlwind success

The lucky winner of an annually held shopping spree had no trouble spending her money on Saturday.

Wendy Baker-Konkin had 2,013 seconds to spend $2,013 dollars and made stops in Shoes for the Soul, Cottonwood Kitchens, Mallards, Still Eagle, Shoe La La, Kootenai Moon and Shalimar Health Spa.

The spree was put on by the Nelson Star and participating businesses and out of hundreds of entries; Baker-Konkin’s name was drawn last week.
