99-year-old woman goes on brithday shopping spree

Sacramento, CA (WTXF) A California woman celebrated her 99th birthday with a shopping spree at a 99 cent store.

The day after her 99th birthday, Sarah Tramble was gifted with a 30 minutes and a shopping cart to fill up. Along with being a great birthday gift, the spree served as a fundraiser for victims of the California drought. For every dollar accrued, the store would donate nine gallons of water.

Tramble herself is known for being quite the character, something that has surely entertained many over the course of her long life.

As for her secret for her youthful glow, Tramble says it may have something to do with Vaseline.

"When I was born they used Vaseline for everything.  For your shoes, your hair, your head, every other thing."

No matter what the secret is, Tramble likes to point out that she is grateful to have lived for so long and is just trying to take it one decade at a time.
