    Tired?

    The 'message' is to support your local merchants this Friday, instead of the "Big Box" stores......maybe think outside the box for a bit and support your local business, who knows, it may be your neighbors or someone you know you're helping.

    Hate black friday, I think it's bullshit. The insanity that accompanies camping overnight at stores, trampling people for "lower prices" - Just completely unnecessary and asinine.

    They also have a FB page.

    Small Business Saturday

    I'm doing my part by going to my local Hallmark store, that also sells Yankee Candles, and with my several B2G2 Free coupons AND my $25 Amex gift card I won from a FedEx give-away, I'mma going shopping! Yeah for small businesses!

    Right on!

    It's hysterical to watch on the news all the sheeple waiting in line at these stores, trying to be the first one in, trampling their own mothers to get a 'deal' on some piece of crap they won't be using 6 months down the road.

    My Black Friday is hanging out at home, chilling then usually getting together that night with friends who are in town for the weekend.

    My husband and I try to shop support our local merchants as much as possible all year round, not just during the Holiday Season.
