Black Friday Shopping Deals

Can you believe it? It’s Thanksgiving weekend. A weekend filled with sales from Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.  I am having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that the end of the year is right around the corner. Want to hear a secret? I still have trouble writing 2012. Normally, you only have that problem in January but I still have trouble believing it is 2012. Now 2013 is right around the corner? I don’t know if I am ready for this! So, I have to know? Are you the kind that loves to scout out the Black Friday sales? Do you wake up at 4 am, head out into the bitter cold to get that perfect gift at the right price? I have all the respect in the world for you.

On the other hand, I am deathly afraid of Black Friday. My fear of Black Friday started the year of my son’s first Christmas. I decided to brave the elements to get him the coveted bouncing Tigger at 4 am in the morning. But that morning I saw the side of human nature that makes me sad. People willing to trample others to get a s$25 gift.  That kind of stuff ruins the moment for me.  It saddens my heart. I love giving gifts but I would never want to trample someone to get it.  Tonight on the news I heard that people are already in line at certain places waiting for Black Friday. Seriously?  Really? You are going to miss Thanksgiving dinner with your family for a deal? I don’t mean to be Debbie downer, but come on.  Well, thank goodness for the internet. And thank goodness for so many of my friends who own small businesses. I thought I would share a few of them with you and the discounts they are offering for Black Friday.

Last but not least I had to share with you their new cutter set. The 12 days of Christmas.  When I saw the 12 Days of Christmas Set at CookieCon, I loved it. I thought what a neat keepsake to have.

But Georganne, from LilaLoa, brought the cutter set to life.

Not only does she show you how to make the cookies but

she is currently taking us on a 12 day tour of Korea. It is breath taking.

If I owned the 12 days of Christmas cutter set, I would love to have a decorating party.

I would invite all my family and friends over.

Give them each a set and let each family decorate them.

How fun would that be?

Well have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. Be safe!

    Small businesses make shopping more exciting! Brings me back to my childhood when we would shop at the little, local stores. Cannot wait to do some Christmas shopping now 🙂

    Thanks so much for posting my code! I wont be going out on Friday- Crazy people and large crowds are sure to give me an anxiety attack. I am completely okay with paying an extra $20 for something if it means my life will be safe! People are crazyyyy!

    What a great post! Thanks for highlighting these small business owners, I’ll be sure to visit them all and show them some love! I’m not a Black Friday adventurer either, I’d much rather be at home in my Jammie’s shopping the Internet!

    Hi Melissa and All…The Promo Code for the Cakey Bakey T-Shirts from Captain Leisure Tees is actually BAKEDEQ. This is our screw up, not Melissa’s. Please use this on checkout. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

    I heart that picture of cutie Jude! Such fin memories! And so many great deals! Like you, I’ll be holding off on the BF mania (I’ve never once gone out) and doing my shopping with small businesses! Mostly online but lots of local goodies too!
