Time check, 1.30AM!
Still here finishing up the last of the setting up before the big weekend begins in the morning.
Despite the huge amount of prep once a year for our warehouse sale, I strangely enjoy it somehow 😂 It's usually a positive experience interacting with customers and shoppers and seeing girls go home happy with their awesome loot!
It's also really nice to put faces to names for our regular customers, especially when all our transactions are done online.
Can't quite believe this is the 5th warehouse sale we've organised already! And so glad that every year, we try to improve a little bit more and make the shopping experience a pleasanter one.
We've come a long way from when poor customers had to queue up for hours in the hot sun or even pouring rain or shop from clothes anyhowly strewn around on trolleys and in toyogo boxes 😂
At least now, everything is hung up properly and even sorted by size and shop (tho things start getting messy fast)!
Love the venue this time round because we're surrounded by FOOD! Lol! There's even a Shine Supermart next door and I can buy Korean snacks tomorrow if I'm feeling peckish 😂
Plus, there's ATMs right outside for those who need to withdraw cash. Toilets are also just around the corner! Don't know what else to ask for already I think this venue is near perfect 👍🏻
Racks full of clothes hehe!
Off to bed now at 2.45am, can't wait for tomorrow to begin, go go goooooo! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 A little too excited to fall asleep now, lol!
A trip down memory lane…..
Madness back then. Done in Lilypirates' shophouse office, and we only had carts and lots of mess! 😂 Nonetheless still had happy customers who left with bags full of loot. I remember the queue outside started from 9am and the poor customers had to wait outdoors in the sweltering hot sun!
Three years ago we all looked so young don't we 😂
2014, when we held the warehouse sale at our office and it was probably one of the worst experiences for the customers because our air conditioners couldn't deal at all and our office turned into a sauna 😨
Plus our space wasn't big enough to accommodate the crowd comfortably, and the queue got really long especially on Day 1! Those in the queue has to wait in our non-ventilated corridor too which was such a torture!
We resolved to make it a better experience in 2015 and we booked a huge venue at TripleOne Somerset! Unfortunately they don't rent out that space anymore so we changed our venue again this year.
Even had a instaprint booth last year that was real fun!!
It was a pretty successful warehouse sale in terms of crowd control and shopper comfort level so I think we really improved a lot! 😊
Were you there for any of our above warehouse sales? 😆
Everything is looking good to go for this year's sale at PoMo so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! So so looking forward to it, hope everything goes smoothly! 🙏🏻
Excited for the bake sale by our two vendors this weekend too wheee!
Shit, having trouble falling asleep! Think it's a combination of excitement plus the cup of coffee I had at 10pm 😂 I better try to sleep!
Randomly, this foundation really 😍😍😍 Just 一个 glowy 而已 lor!!! Love the crazy lightweight but beautiful coverage! #nofilter

Looks like it's gonna be a rainy day! ☹️ Prepare your brollies, everyone!!
In a car now with a bunch of floating balloons 😹 LOL!
Let the shopping begin!!!!
Wah my first time eating tempura maki!! Thanks @Jenrine! 😘😘
Glad to see everyone leaving with bags of purchases!!!
With the Nuffies who dropped by @yeomabel @missy_ada @chrislovee and @missgoob! 🙆🏻🙆🏻🙆🏻
Bought this from Shine mart next door 😂 SHIOK!
The exhaustion is real, guys.
Just reached home and the only thing I want to do right now is to take a hot shower, crawl into bed and pass out.
Didn't have time to update live on social media earlier, but really thankful for the shoppers who were so patient with us!
Our apologies for the time limit constraint as we have to handle the crowd by only letting customers come in batch by batch, and supposedly only 30 mins per batch, if not those waiting to enter would have to wait forever 😖 We did our best and tried to give every batch up to 45 mins so I hope everyone managed to have time enough to shop comfortably!
The queue was extending pretty far out in the afternoon, we tried our best to move the queues as quickly as we could while still ensuring optimal shopping conditions!
Will be heading down to office tomorrow to do stock replenishing for the sale! 💪🏻 So I'll have to be awake at 8am 😴 I'm gonna need my sleep tonight after last night's caffeine-induced insomnia and being on my feet the whole of today.
If any of you visited our sale today and have photos to share (if you took any with me 😆) or loot to review, just tag your post with #mggtvdlpwarehousesale! 😘
