DownEast Tent Sale 2013

Today is one of our favorite days of the year, the beginning of the DownEast Tent Sale! Undoubtedly, we come away with a major bargain and we get all giddy looking forward to the sale.

Last year I scored my West Elm living room couches for $125 each.

Here are a few tips for shopping the big sale:

#1 Allow enough time. The tent can be overwhelming and you want to allow enough time for adequate rummaging. Take your time to make your way around the tent and reading the boxed merchandise. Many items do not have a floor display out.

#2 Inspect everything very thoroughly. DownEast usually only exchanges merchandise and many items in the tent sale are final sale.

#3 If you feel a price is too high, you may as well ask for a lower price. It never hurts to ask!

Make sure to check with your local DownEast as tent sale dates vary per location. Happy, happy bargain shopping!
