If you've got tons of Sanrio superfans on your holiday gift list this year, clear your sched for Hello Kitty's always-eventful warehouse sale. Going down next Saturday, November 14th (9am to 5pm) and Sunday, November 15th (10am to 3pm), the blowout promises up to 70% off toys, plushes, jewelry, stationery, bags, accessories, and much more.
Next week's sale will take place at a bigger space (3,000 square feet!), so expect much more merch than the last event. We also expect diehards to line up at the crack of dawn for this one, so take a peek at our previous survival guide to ensure you're fully prepped. Cash and credit cards are accepted and there'll be free on-site parking; note that there'll be no restrooms available and no strollers are allowed inside. Good luck!
