I know a lot of people avidly avoid Black Friday sales but I was not one of them this past weekend. In fact, I was with the group of 400 people lining up at the mall at 6am on Black Friday. Is that a bit crazy? Sure. I don't really mind crowds and the thrill of the hunt energizes me. To prep, I do advance detective work on what the sales are going to be (ie 50% off sale at Anthro) and then have a mental list of things to look out for. Then I go in, I peruse, I grab, and I buy (my shopping version of veni, vidi, vici).
This year, I did get some of the items on my mental wishlist, and was pleasantly surprised by the Madewell sale. I scored big time and above are some of my favorites: a chambray shirt, a cozy sweater coat and two maxi skirts--just in time for the cooler weather!
What did you find this Black Friday/Cyber Monday?
