The tent sale is pretty much just like it sounds. Everything is under a huge tent, each aisle is exactly two shopping carts wide, and merchandise is neatly organized in bins and boxes on both sides of the aisle. The aisles are set up as a snaking corridor rather than the typical aisles in a supermarket, so once you pass something it can be very difficult to get back to it. It helps to get organized before you get there and become overwhelmed by all the awesome stuff you just have to have.
I've found that it's best to go prepared with a list:
- 2009 Wilton yearbook
- 2008 Wilton yearbook
- ABC/123 cookie cutter set
- candy melts
- ABC candy mold
- 123 candy mold
- stars mold
- peanut butter candy cups mold
- 12 icing color set
- cute cupcake liners
And, I'm on the lookout for anything Elmo and Sesame Street. Little Guy's birthday is in the fall, and I want to be ready with the Sesame Street theme. For example:
This would be a perfect cake topper.
I'll post all about my trip to the Wilton tent sale and my purchases this weekend. Stay tuned!
