Outlet at Pine Cone Hill

Amid discounted home goods galore, the big draws are the slightly imperfect luxe rugs that are rolled out just for the tent sales. First sale of the season: 5/25–5/28. Pittsfield, MA.

Pompanoosuc Mills

To snag fine Vermont-crafted furniture and home accents for up to 70 percent off, some folks actually do camp out for this venerable tent sale. 5/26–28. East Thetford, VT.

Lofty Maine-made comforters, pillows, and featherbeds for up to 70 percent off? Ah, the stuff(ing) of our dreams. 7/20–7/22. Freeport, ME.


Crowds line up before dawn for the year’s best prices on this legendary Vermont brand’s snowboards, boots, outerwear, and more (over 40,000 items in all). 8/25–8/26. Burlington, VT.
