I don't need deals on glue sticks and notebooks to know September is coming. I can measure time by the sudden influx of inquiries on the incessantly popular Thymes Warehouse Sale. So here's what you need to know: the 2011 Thymes Warehouse Sale will take place at 63 Saint Anthony Parkway, Mpls. Hours are: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6 and Friday Oct. 7 and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8. Expect big deals on bath, body and home products from the Minneapolis-based brand. And pack a snack - last year's check-out line took at hour at some points.
