Wilton Tent Sale Event!

What will make me get up at 6am on a Saturday morning? The Wilton Tent Sale of course! The Wilton Tent Sale is an annual event that takes place just outside of Chicago at their headquarters in Woodridge, IL. Today was the first weekend the sale was open since 2007 (they didn't have a sale last year) and it's also dubbed the Baker's Black Saturday among those who are familiar with Wilton products.

I arrived at 7:30am, 30 minutes before the sale started, and there was already a long long line of anxious shoppers before me. It was an amazing sight to see how many people came out for this sale! Clearly hundreds of people were in line before the opening and it was only the first Saturday. While in line, I met folks who travelled from Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan, as well as all over the state of Illinois!

I plan on going back again next week for round two of my shopping spree but this time around, here's what I filled my cart with...

Assorted colored chocolate melts, baking cups,
candy cups, set of 12 gel colors...

Assorted colors of sprinkles, vanilla/almond/butter extracts,
squeeze bottles, cupcake boxes, soft grip cookie cutters,
reusable decorator bags, wine/liquor pourers...

Assorted multi-colored sprinkles, parchment paper,
disposable decorator bags, tart pan set,
standard muffin pans, mini loaf pans,
mini springform pans, more cupcake boxes...

  2. I wish I lived closer to Chicago!! You got tons of great stuff!!

  3. No FAIR! Looks like you had a great time! Do some of those cupcake boxes hold 12 cupcakes?? I've never seen those in the stores before. Glad you had a wonderful time.

  5. This all looks so incredible Joelen... I'm insanely jealous! I would love to go in for just a few minutes to snag some deals. Just the sprinkles and cupcake liners alone would be enough to make me happy... but look at all the other goodies you can find!
