It’s here officially tomorrow a.m. for 10 days – the Samko and Mike Toy and Book Warehouse Sale. Every year the toy sale comes to Western Fair for 10 days and thriftymomma has gone for the last couple of years. The first year I attended the sale I loaded up on dozens of bargains for my children and nieces and nephews. One year I went twice – at start of sale and got a couple of things and then when I went on the last day of the sale I was even more pleasantly suprised as further discounts had occurred and I scored some amazing deals. Crayola products and other various craft kits and supplies are always excellent deals here. This year the sale runs from Nov. 20th to 29th at the Western fairgrounds Canada Building. Opening day is 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Excellent brands are usually available with Barbie products (often one season old. So maybe this year you could find Barbie Twelve Dancing Princesses or whatever last year’s Barbie movie was and next year the current Barbie and The Three Musketeers will in all likelihood be there.) Great deals on Diego and Dora products and usually a couple of larger items as well like dollhouses and this year the flyer advertises Barbie’s A Throne of My Own. Baby products are plentiful and Graco, Little Tikes, Playskool and Fisher Price items are always available. As well certain charities are often given a portion of the profits from sales. Last year the Children’s Aid Society of London-Middlesex received a portion of the profits and this year a whole host charities are registered. Happy Shopping!
