Le Creuset's fall factory sale was so popular the brand announced it's throwing another long-weekend bash to schill its cast-iron cookware at a discount. From November 9-12, the company will be hosting a flea market of sorts, including rare products that weren't widely seen in the U.S, at the Charleston Area Convention Center in South Carolina.
To keep the shopping from turning into a Black Friday frenzy, Le Creuset is selling $10 tickets, which get you in to a two-hour shopping session. All of the proceeds benefit culinary scholarships for students at Trident Technical College, as well as the The Green Heart Project, which supports school garden programs.
There's an early shopping session on Thursday, Novvember 9, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., but those tickets will set you back $25. If you don't care about first dibs, the $10 ticket will earn you a spot on Friday or Saturday, sometime during the sale's hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
On Sunday, there's no charge to shop for whatever's leftover, though the event is only open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day.

The event takes place from Thursday, September 28 through Sunday, October 1. Thursday's a special early shopping event, with the marketplace only open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. It'll set you back $25 per person to get your first pick of all the goods on sale, but you'll get a little bonus: free snacks and drinks, as well as live music while you shop. Because nothing gets you ready to party like honky tonk and rows of enamel cast iron.
On Friday and Saturday, you can shop from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Sunday, it'll be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To keep the chaos at a minimum, if you visit on Friday and Saturday, you have to pay $10 to enter, and you'll only be allowed to shop for two hours. (You can actually .) All of the proceeds from ticket sales benefit The Nashville Food Project and Second Harvest Bank of Middle Tennessee, according to a press release.
If you don't care about getting prime pickings, you can shop for free on Sunday, provided you and bring a nonperishable food to donate to the charities. The food bank's particularly in need of canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, cereal, canned meat (like chicken or tuna) and peanut butter.
Now, the only question is whether you have enough room in your car to haul your friends and your finds.
