    I called this morning and the Norfolk factory said they were not starting their sale until next week. They also would not tell me which day they would start, and that they would not know for sure until October 31st. I will be calling again on Thursday or Friday to see if I can get a definite start date, but so far they seem like they don't want to give out that information.

    That's because their primary focus isn't selling directly to the public; they'd rather we buy from the retailers that buy from them. One of my problems with that is I'd like to see the item before I buy it, and can't find them locally. I'll happily help them clear their storerooms of their manufacturing overruns, some of the blemishes and other seconds.

    I'm really hoping the Tarboro plant will be doing it this year.

    We went to the Norfolk location yesterday morning. It wasn't as large a selection as I had hoped, but we did get several items. We purchased many nativity blowmolds, as well as a few others. Apparently they restock each day, but I'm not sure if they restock during the day, so I would recommend going in the morning. They really do not give out much information. I also called last week and was given different answers of start date of sale, but I believe it started on October 31. They also had Christmas trees.

    We need to know what the Tarboro location is doing. Perhaps some of you can start calling them ?

    I just called them (11/07/2016, 11 AM) and the attendant on the phone said they still don't know, and won't until next week.

    It sounded like she wanted to say yes, but did not actually come out and say that.

    I hope they put some limits on what people can buy. Even a $500 limit would help 99% of everyone get what they want. The last time I was there, a giant truck had arrived at about 4am. And so they were among the first few people in the door. They had 5 or 6 people grabbing cases of everything and stacking them into a giant monolith in the middle of the floor, with the guy standing guard so people don't try to buy anything from his "pile." He was literally buying hundreds of items. That one truck bought close to half of all the blowmolds they had, but no trees.

    Keep me posted if you find out when they will open. I might be interested in coming up this year to see what I might want for next year. I would like to buy 8 or 9 of the short fat snowmen like the ones Dariusz bought. They look like they will work great with dumb RGBs inside. They are only about 15" tall and would look great on the front of my blowmold rows ..

    I called this morning and they answered. The lady was very nice and told me that they did NOT open for local sales last year. She did tell me that I could call on Monday to find out this year's decision. They are talking about it but have not decided yet. She commented that people took advantage of them way beyond the intent of the sales in past years, and their general manager has not been happy about it every since.

    I am sure that was when they huge trucks showed up (although she didn't say that)! They ruined it for all of us.

    If I hear anything, I will send a TASL email instead of posting here. Our discussions about this place may have contributed to dragging in the people who caused the problem :-(

    I'd like to find them in white, so I can load them up with RGBs. Then I'd line my roof with them.

    Here are some on eBay .. but not sure if they are the GF ..

    I've been trying to get one of the China suppliers to make some large clear ones as pixels, with facets on them to improve the reflection. Ray Wu made one on my requestwith three 5050 leds inside. But then he disappointed me by making the bulb only about 3 inches tall. I want them to be not less than 6" tall, but around 8" or 10" tall would be even better. and it would probably take 5 or 6 5050 LEDs to give it enough brightness. I'll start bugging him again ..
