Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a Wilton Mom ReTreat and it was as much, if not more fun, than the other Wilton Mom ReTreats I’ve been to.  At the ReTreat, we were introduced to some fabulous new products coming out to stores soon.  I wish I could tell ya more than that, but I can’t.  Trust me, you’ll love what Wilton has in store for you!  I know I did!

We also had the opportunity to take a trip through the Wilton Tent Sale.  We attended the Wilton Tent Sale last year, so I thought I would be more than prepared for the Tent Sale.  Wrong!  There are so many awesome Wilton goodies under that tent that I could have easily stayed all afternoon long!  Two hours was NOT enough time – lol!  In fact, as we learned about some of the upcoming products and designs, I started to make a list of the items that I had forgotten at the tent sale.

The Wilton Tent Sale runs from June 3rd through June 21st in Chicago, Illinois – at the Wilton Headquarters.  You can’t miss the giant tent if you’re looking from it.  It’s even visible from the freeway.  Just ask any of the bloggers that drove past it a few times during the past few days’ events.  We were very excited to have our chance in the tent!

The Wilton Tent Sale is held every year in Woodridge, Illinois and has become a popular event for cake decorators and crafters.  People come from all over the country to shop at the Wilton Tent Sale!  At the Wilton Tent Sale this year, you’ll find amazing deals on a wide selection of Wilton cake decorating and baking supplies,  as well as kitchen and paper craft products from Copco, EK Success Brands, and K & Company.

The doors opened on June 3rd at 4:30 p.m.  Hours of operation will be from Monday through Friday (9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.) and Saturday and Sunday (8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)

The Wilton Tent Sale is located at 2240 W. 75th Street, Woodridge, IL 60517.

Travel and accommodations, as well as a gift certificate, were provided by Wilton, Inc. for this event.  All opinions expressed are 100% mine.

  1. I’m so jealous! I would love to go there, but I don’t forsee my going to IL between now and the 21st. I remember your trip last year and have seen other bloggers stockpile from this year already so I’m sure you got great stuff, too.
    Have fun baking and I can’t wait to see photos of your creations. =)

    I went to the tent sale this past week. I had been the prior two years as well. This year was disappointing to me. It was right in the middle of the sale period but there were a lot of boxes that were empty.

    Glad you had such a fun time at the Wilton Mom Retreat! I remember when I first met you last year you were so excited to be heading to Chicago for one of their Retreats!

    That tent sale sounds amazing! Wish we had more fun stuff like this in our neck of the woods!
