I had heard rumors about the Wilmot Warehouse Sale happening in May… MAY!? What happened to June once school is out?? Anyway, you can see above that the dates are Thursday, May 12- Saturday, May 14, 2016.
If you are new to the Wilmot Sale, it happens in Wilmot, Wisconsin (near Kenosha), at the Mattel Outlet Warehouse. Historically there are no dolls there. You will find AG clothes, accessories, Bitty outfits and accessories, books, and girls’ clothes. Often there are a good amount of items from the last two Girl of the Year dolls (Isabelle, Grace for example). You do not need an advance ticket to enter the sale, but once you arrive you grab a number which determines when you can enter the sale – it can be hours later.
The sale is no place for small children, or your average husband! It is also a Port o Potty situation so plan ahead with hand wipes and sanitizer! Check out can be very long because there are folks who sell on eBay and buy thousands of dollars of items at a time. Credit cards are accepted, but it can be wonky and take a while to process… adding to the wait.
Are we going this year? Not sure. Brianna would say “YES!” We wouldn’t be able to go until the Saturday date due to school, and I am not sure if it is worth it to go on the last day when we also have access to the Outlet store in Oshkosh.
Speaking of the Outlet store, stay tuned for a blog giveaway!
If you have questions, I am happy to help.
