WOWZERS!!! Fiskars Warehouse sale

So a buddy of mine from FISKATEERS invited me to come stay with her so we could go to the warehouse sale together (that's her with a paint can I decorated for her, the kids and I made Christmas Cookies for her and her sweet hubby Kevin (thanks K for putting up with two crazy shoppers *grin* and letting Louise invite me over to play) She was such a fabulous hostess and we even got to play for awhile in her scrap room!

Granted morning came early and boy was it COLD!!!! But soon we found ourselves in FISKALAND!!! A magical place of fabulous deals on all types of fiskars products. There were punches, and papers, and embellishments and tools and whatnots and thing a ma jigs galore...and hundreds of crazy shoppers!!!

After filling our carts we went to check out! The staff was so helpful and friendly!!!! (Beth was a bit scared of my pile) But she had helpers!!! and Hong (He's in the middle) helped me even load my van!!! Beth was standing next to me!

It took awhile to load we didn't get out of there till 2-2:30

But soon we were on our way home!!!! Unloading was a feat! there was absolutely NO ROOM to even walk (there were stacks everywhere (in the kitchen too!)




So guess how much I spent?????

Betsy, I swear next year I am talking my hubby into making a road trip! Wow, do you live anywhere near Michigan, cuz I am coming to visit you! I have no idea how much you spent, just a guess $300

Jen said...

I am guessing about $589! I saw Louis as was on my way out...and she said that you were looking for a pallet of the HG boxes! Glad that you got them :)

raeinreno said...

Well, since it was a bargain warehouse sale, I would guess you may have paid by the box. How about $274.95

Hey Betsy..Sharp shooter here! I am like seriously drooling over here! I think a little voice keeps telling me to say $75..although I know this seems EXTREMELY low and I think I want to say something higher, I think I will just stick with that number. I know what awesome deals my sister (Kim in IL) got there last year when she went. Totally amazing!
