It was a summer, girls-only, road trip kind of day today. Destination: the American Girl Warehouse Sale in Wilmot, Wisconsin. We had never attended this sale, and it was an adventure! We arrived around 11 am and got our ticket to go in. Our number was 536 and so far only numbers through 125 had been admitted in. At least you can leave and come back after you have a ticket.
We passed time at a small-town cafe and mingled with other doll lovers. We marveled at the number of eBay buyers at the sale, some of whom arrived at 3 am and brought uHauls (moving trucks). No kidding! One person was funding her kid’s medical school tuition by selling items on eBay.
Our number was called and we entered the sale around 2:30. No shortage of merchandise and the prices were very good. American Girl mini-dolls, $ 6.00; AG clothing $10-14.00; books, $2.00. We were glad Mr. Saver wasn’t along because he would have had some sort of calculation adding in the value of our time + gas. We had fun, though, and we will always remember our crazy long day in Wilmot!
Stay tuned for a future post on how we budget for these adventures. If you have questions about this annual sale, please leave a comment.
