Taime Warehouse Sale (2 to 4 Jun 2011)

This was one of those sales that we kinda drag our feet to go to as we were unsure if it was gonna be worth our time especially since Jared only learnt about it from some advert online and we haven't heard of anyone who have gone there before.

As we had some free time on Saturday evening before dinner, we decided at the eleventh hour to go down since it was only a short 10 mins drive from our place to the sale happening at some ulu industrial estate in Chai Chee.

Going down so last minute is not exactly a good idea especially when it dawned on us in the car that this was the last day of the sale and we only have an hour or so left to look around before the sale ended at 8pm! Why did we keep thinking Sunday was the last day of the sale?!?!

Located on the 6th level of a flatted factory block, Taime Pte Ltd is the local distributor for one of the lesser advertised “Lucky Baby” brand and it also carries alternative brands like Chicco, Capella and Pecan amongst others.

As with all sales, the most important thing to know is how heavily discounted are the items out there? We just got to look at the color of the price tags…. EASY!

Chicco products were especially popular since many of them were going at 40% off! Bottles, tonnes of toys, teethers. food warmers etc……. We suddenly wished that we had come to the sale earlier!

We wanted this height-adjustable booster seat to save space so as to avoid having to buy a bulky feeding chair.

All in all, we spent about $168 for over 15 items including many toys to entertain Julien. We can say the sale was worth the drive down but wished we had gone earlier and have more time to look through the store! For bargain hunters, we were told that Taime holds their warehouse sale twice a year. So do keep a lookout!
