Win a bottle of Justin Bieber's "Someday" fragrance!

And win a bunch of other perfume and beauty products that I'm pretty sure have a retail value of well over $100 (full list and pictures below). All you have to do is tell me Charlotte's best-kept retail secret.

Yes, this is a contest. I want to know what you think is the best-kept retail secret in Charlotte. It can be a store hardly anyone has heard of, an out-of-the-way roadside stand that sells something cool or a tip or trick that saves you cash.

Here are the rules: You can leave your secret as a comment or email it to me, but if you leave it as a comment, make sure that you include an email address where I can reach you. I may use this "secret" in an article or might file it away for later use. Please don't include anything illegal, such as "My secret tip is to shoplift more effectively." And finally, this contest is totally arbitrary, with me picking the winner.

Here's what you stand to win:

Background: I got this stuff for free from Belk during a media event. Despite my intense desire to smell like Justin Bieber mixed with Taylor Swift and Jessica McClintock, the ethical thing to do as a journalist is give it away. I'm not going to track down and add up the total retail value, but these items all appear to be full retail size, so I'm guessing well, well north of $100.

So there you have it: Send me your secrets and I'll mail you Justin Bieber in a bottle.

 The items, on my desk in front of my duck decoy

My secret is that when I met Taylor Swift for a Meet & Greet I thought to see an angel. When she came in the room I saw a light around her and every thoughts in my mind dissapeared..I never felt this way before, she brings to me heavenly feellings and serenity. Best hug ever! I already seen other artist but I truly believe I saw an angel that time and the effect she gaves me I'll never say to anyone :) -Love TSwift-

My retail secret is FiFi's Fine Resale in Cornelius on Catawba Avenue. This amazing store has thousands of consignors who bring in everything from Prada handbags and Coach sunglasses to Chico's and other high-desire names. My FiFi's find was a beautiful leather Chico's blue metalllic jacket, brand new with original tags, that I "stole" last winter for $25. I want to win! Karen@InYourSandbox.com

My secret is couponing. Here's the tip. Look at your coupon. The first set of 5 numbers under the bar code is the Manufacturer Code. For example, 37000 is Proctor & Gamble. Look at the bar code on the item you want to buy. If the manufacturer code on the coupon matches the manufacturer code on the item's bar code, you can use the coupon regardless of what item is pictured on the coupon. For example, my coupon has a picture of dog food on it and the first set of numbers on the bar code on the coupon is 37000 but I want to buy toilet paper. I look at the bar code on a package of Charmin and the numbers on it are 37000. I can use the coupon on the toilet paper, even though the picture on the coupon is of dog food. kyoung7870@att.net.

Hi my name is Kajol. My secret is that I actually cry everyday losing hope that I will ever meet Justin Bieber. I think that he's just amazing. I have almost everything of his except his perfume. Justin Bieber is just perfect. I even had a dream of me meeting Justin Bieber and I woke up in the morning with tears in my eyes. I love him so much, it's unbelievable.

My best kept secret is that if you go to Amazon usually has the best prices on perfumes. Either that or Walmart. Sometimes you can find it cheaper. But never look on ebay. It used be the cheap way now it' s rip off, because seller want to make money so they raise the retail price. If you save your money you can buy more of what you like. I know no Duh, right? But still so true.
