If you happen to have plans to be in or around Charleston, South Carolina the weekend of November 10, you will be in luck. Not only is historic Charleston extra pretty that time of year, but it's also where you'll be able to find a massive flea-market-style sale on Le Creuset items.
(Not planning on being there during that time? Perhaps you should look into making some travel arrangements. Just an idea.)
Following the wild success of its mega-sale in September, Le Creuset is blessing fans yet again with a weekend-long blowout, featuring slashed prices on its iconic cookware. The sale will be happening from Thursday, November 9, to Sunday, November 12. The only catch: It's happening live (IRL!) at the Charleston Area Convention Center in South Carolina. So you actually have to be there in person.
Expect to see items from every category — including cast iron, stoneware, enameled cast iron, stainless steel, nonstick, kitchen tools, wine accessories, and more. There will even be rare and limited-edition styles (remember that Beauty & The Beast collection?) that weren't widely available in the U.S.
What sorts of discounts are we talking, though? Le Creuset's event page points out that the discounts will reach up to 70 percent off retail prices.
To get in early, you'll need to snag a $10 ticket, which gets you a two-hour session of stress-free shopping on either Friday or Saturday between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. If you'd prefer even earlier access, you can opt for one of the $25 "early bird" sessions on Thursday, which also run in two-hour blocks from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. On Sunday, admission is free; however, you may be picking through pretty scarce leftovers.
All of the proceeds from ticket sales benefit both culinary scholarships at Trident Technical College and The Green Heart Project, a nonprofit volunteer program that sustains school gardens.
