Word is out in the frugal blogosphere that the Mega Brands Warehouse in Fife is having a back to school sale this week!
I drove by on our way home from swim and confirmed it’s a go!
No clue what I’m talking about? Mega Brands makes Mega Bloks, Rose Art products, and many,many other toy brands. A couple of times a year they have a sale in their warehouse. Like a lot of these events, the deals vary. Sometimes you can really score. Last go round, I got a couple of art kits and some of those velvet coloring posters. Although this is a back to school sale, you’ll also find toys if you want to get a jump on your holiday shopping. In terms of the school supply prices, I think they’re decent, but they probably won’t impress you if you’re used to shopping the deals and getting things for .25 or so on. On the other hand, if you like the idea of getting it all done in one place, and you’re fine with the Rose Art brand, you’ll find plenty for 1.00 or less. My pal Lisa got what you see in the pic below for less than 20.00 to give you an idea. I think she’d already put a few art kids in the gift closet when she took this one.
You do need to bring CASH, and I’ve got some more tips you need to know right here! Oh, and don’t forget about the traffic cameras at all the lights in Fife. Make sure you come to a full and complete stop before you turn on red, or your bargains will get a lot pricier. This includes the intersection right before this street (Can you tell I have experience with this???)
If you want to check this one out for yourself, it’s Thursday and Friday from 11:30-6:30 and Saturday from 9-5:30. You can phone 253-517-2442 for more info. The warehouse is at 2511 70TH AVE E FIFE WA 98424 I’m guessing it will be hotter than a pistola in there, so be prepared!
