WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Sarah Palin showed up at a Hollywood gift suite with two daughters, her brother and a small entourage in tow and loaded up with free promotional cosmetic and fashion items being given away in connection with Oscar-week festivities.

Lorna Khoo of Cardstore.com and various other vendors exhibiting their wares at the Silver Spoon gift suite said the former vice-presidential candidate snapped up organic soaps, personalized stationery, and a designer robe and sandals on her Wednesday visit.

The 46-year-old politician, who was in town to perform a standup routine on Jay Leno's "Tonight" show, also picked up under-eye cream and a deep moisturizer from Bloom cosmetics, according to those present.

Silver Spoon spokesman Ben Russo said Palin made an unspecified "sizable contribution" to Red Cross Haitian relief before leaving the suite.

A message left with Palin's lawyer on Thursday wasn't immediately returned.
