Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting kicks off this weekend with a shopping spree.

Dubbed the Berkshire Bargain Bazaar, the shopping event is a tradition at the annual conference. With over 20,000 square feet of showroom space and over 50,000 items in stock, the showroom features merchandise from countless agglomeration properties.

This year, contributors can snap up Warren Buffett plush dolls from Squishmallows for the first time. They can also snag Buffett-themed clothing from Brooks Sports, as well as Berkshire chocolate coins from See’s Candies.

The event takes place in downtown Omaha at the CHI Health Center. Only contributors can participate in the event and claim the discount.
