This year's Wilton Tent Sale starts in one week. As my regular readers know, this event is like a mini-version of Christmas for me. I just can't wait to get my hands on all that great, discounted cake/candy/crafting stuff!
For those not familiar with the company, Wilton is famous for their cake-decorating and candy-making supplies. But did you also know they are the makers of all things Copco, the Mario Batali Italian Kitchen line, EK Success products and....MARTHA STEWART CRAFTS?!!!
And during their once-a-year Tent Sale in Woodridge, Illinois, many of the items they make are sold at a substantial discount. While the selection varies from year to year (some years there have been more craft items, some years it's more about the cake decorating supplies), all items are 40-75% off regular retail prices.
Here's what I bought in: 2011, 2010 and 2009. Substantial hauls, each and every one! This year, I'm on the hunt for all things pirate, since that will be the theme for Little Guy's 5th birthday. These pirate cupcake liners and candy picks are on my "must have" list:
The Tent Sale runs from June 1-19. On June 1, the sale is open 1-8pm. After that, it is open Monday through Friday from 9am to 8pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 6pm. Read all about the Tent Sale here.
My plan is to be there on June 3. See you there!
