What is the tent sale?

The tent sale is an event in which we sell our second quality Fiesta® dinnerware at a discounted price. We hold these sales twice a year at our Factory Retail Outlet in Newell, WV

What are seconds? 

Seconds are Fiesta dinnerware items that have minor flaws in them, some you may not even notice.

Where can I get a price list?

Price lists will be handed out while you are in line. Expect to see a wide variety of Fiesta items discounted at 57-83% off retail sale suggested price.

What are the prices like?

The prices can be up to 57%-83% off retail sale prices.

What colors will be in the tent?

The color selection will vary each day. You might even be lucky enough to find some discontinued colors. Twilight is the newest color to be released in seconds and will be available at this tent sale. Peony will not make its tent sale debut until next year.

Can I purchase first quality Fiesta during the tent sale?

Yes, the outlet store will be open during the tent sale

What items will be at the sale?

We will have over 55 different items in the tent! The earlier you get there, the wider the selection of ware. New items must be available for a year before they are released in seconds. Due to liabilities, we are unable to sell you any broken pieces for any reason.

How are the items sold?

Every item is sold individually unless you find a matching lid. Even items that are typically sold in a set will be sold individually, such as the extra-large butter dish.

Do I need to get there on the first day to get the best item/color selection? No, we will restock the tent with new bins of product every day

Do I need to get there early to get the best item/color selection?

Trust us, we will not run out of ware! The tent will always have a good stock of plates, bowls, and mugs no matter what time you get there. Getting there early will give you an advantage if we only have one bin of a certain item. However, if we only have a few pieces of an item we try to limit the amount you can purchase to just a few to give everyone a chance!

Are my purchases boxed for me, or do I need to bring something to pack them in?

All ware that you purchase will be wrapped in paper and packed securely in boxes/bags for easy transportation.

What happens if I return home and discover an item wasn’t packed or I want to exchange a purchased item?

Make sure to watch your items as they are being packed. Sometimes our packers work so quickly that they miss packing an item. All our sales on second quality items are final, regardless of whether it is during the tent sale or not. Therefore, if an item is unfortunately left behind or what you no longer desire, we are unable to refund or exchange the item. Also, make sure to check if your cashier or packer has put stoppers in your salt and pepper shakers and given you gaskets for your canisters.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and cash. We do not accept American Express or checks. If you are paying with a credit card, please have your ID ready. All sales are final.

Do you accept gift cards/gift certificates during the tent sale? Outlet gift cards are accepted in the outlet store but not in the tent. We do not accept gift certificates issued for www.fiestafactorydirect.com in the outlet store or tent.

What do I need to bring?

We will provide you with shopping carts. No dollies are allowed in the tent. There is a good chance the ware will be a little dirty. Therefore, we highly recommend bringing an old hand towel or a sock to wipe off the factory dirt and dust from the dishes. And of course, we recommend you bring a friend!

Can I bring my child with me? What if my child is in a car seat or if I’m holding them? 

Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, no strollers, or children under the age of 14 are permitted in the tent.

What happens if it rains?

The show must go on! The sale will happen come rain or shine. However, if there is lightning and thunder, we will evacuate the area until the weather has cleared, and it has been deemed safe to continue.

How long is the line?

It’s hard to tell what a customer’s wait time will be, but customers should be aware that there are three lines before entering the tent. You will move to each portion of the line as the customers before you move through the tent
