Has anyone ever went to the Wilton tent sale that they have once a year? It advertises big savings, but I was wondering what they consider "big savings".

The wilton tent sale takes place in a suburb outside of Chicago, IL
It would be about a 2 hour drive for me, doesn't mean I can afford to go though.

I have gone and am planning my trip already. I have a list. It is a very good savings. A good majority of the shaped pans are only $5 and a lot of thier sets that usually sell for 30 can be found around 15. They have all thier supplies out and are considerably cheaper then the stores. You can also find products from their other companies, like tea kettles, picture frames ect. There tent sale usually has all of the products they carry. It is well worth the trip. I know last year, some ladies on another site actually flew in to get together to go the sale. If you can go, I would, you wont be disappointed.

Don't forget to plan for extra money for the tolls- unless you have an IPASS (auto system for paying tolls in IL).

My daughter and I frequent the tent sale every year, usually 2 or 3 times while it is there. All the cake decorating items, i.e, food color, boxes. cardboards, parchment, almost anything you can imagine is 35-40% off the regular price. They even have wedding cake supplies and party supplies. Just about anything in the Wilton yearbook or at their on-line store is available. The stock changes from day-to-day, so you never know what you may find! Luckily, I'm only about 10 minutes away. We usually spend around $250 a year at the tent sale. I think it would be well worth a trip if you're not too far away.

I sure wish Wilton would have one closer to me!!! I also think that Wilton should help us decorator's out some by offering us some kind of a discount! I've bought so much Wilton stuff!!! Like a card you can get at the grocery store. They swipe it everytime you buy from there & when you spend over a certain amount you get a discount in the mail. That would be great!! Michael's did give a 10% discount on any Wilton stuff while I was taking the cake classes. That helped a lot!

I took my Wiltonses at a Hobby Lobby 50 miles away. At the first we got a voucher for 10% off any cake decorating supplies during the course of the class. I was saying yee ha to that but for the second class they us the same voucher but said it was for a one time use only. Here we were there for how many weeks and we got a measly 10% off one night. I was disgusted because I was spending some bucks on every week, so I told my instructor I'd be buying my supplies at a town nearer my home where they have every Wilton tip made and a heck of a lot more cake stuff than HL. I've bought a very few things at Hobby Lobby since then.

Yesterday I went to that store and browsed through the tip drawers with a Wilton Yearbook and got about 7-8 tips I just wanted to try out. There's so much I want to learn. I can't bring myself to take another class. I sure wish I knew or some people in my area or surrounding area who do cake decorating and would like to form a club/group to get together to learn and share neat things. Guess I need to take the initive and look into it myself. For al I know they meet every week someplace nearby without me!! Eek!!
Boy, I got off the topic. LOL Sorry!

Hey Carol~ If you really want to form a group why not post something in the local newspaper about it. That's an idea! Don't have everyone interested in it come to your home. For your safety! Have a meeting in a public place like VA Hall, public library, place to eat, even school or church. Ask those places first, LOL! Once you get to know everyone & find them safe then maybe you could meet at your homes. Swap houses each week. Wouldn't that be fun!! icon_smile.gif HMMMMM maybe I'll look into something like that here!! I loved taking the classes & I hated it when they ended! I might use my own advice!!! icon_biggrin.gif
