"French Cookware" at Tuesday Morning?

Any of you guys have an inside scoop on this?

I keep seeing ads on TV and in print for a big sale tomorrow morning at Tuesday Morning on "French Cookware" that looks like Le Creuset - but is it?

If it is, anyone have an idea on pricing? Is it all hype or is there really a deal to be had? I can't find any actual useful info on their website.

  1. I've seen the ads too and it sure looks like LC but the nearest store is an hour away and tomorrow is too busy to get there and back and keep my other appts. so I guess I'll have to pass.

      Went into my local (NO, LA) store last Friday and it had some LC on the shelf...just a few pots but lots and lots of stoneware, including individ gratin dishes.

    2. It usually is the real deal and it's usually a great bargain, but I for one, am not about to fight the crowds! People line up at 6 am for that, and it's just not worth it to me! I remember I went for some ceramic plates that looked nice in the ad and they were all gone by 8 am!!

        wow, thanks for the warning. I had no idea Tuesday Morning was such a big deal.

          It is here anyway... I'm just not all about elbowing my way through a crowd of cranky women just to get a good deal! I'll stick to my online shopping, thank you very much! ;-)

      2. I've also gotten some nice Emile Henri at TM...

        1. a new Tuesday Morning opened today (7 AM) near Reading Pa
          and all the large Le Creuset pieces were gone very early.
          best I could do was an LC pie plate !!

          1. I'd never been to Tuesday Morning, even though there are three of them within a half hour's drive of my house. But after reading this board I took a ride to the store in Hockessin, DE. I must say, I was totally underwhelmed. Looked like a messy bunch of junk. Lots of T-Fal and Silverstone. Is this usual, or should I have been there at the crack of dawn for the "real deal"?

              Yeah, I'm really underwhelmed by the Tuesday Mornings in my area too (Los Angeles). It looks like someone threw a lot of unsellable things into a giant warehouse. I check it out regularly because there's one next door to my gym, but I rarely find things worth buying.

                I think they have just one thing usually that's their niche for the week or whatever and bank on people coming in to look for that one thing and then leaving with other crap.
