Black Friday is over and soon it will be Cyber Monday – just how much shopping can we stand? Of course I’m being facetious but shoppers were out there in droves this past Friday. There were bargains, there were sales, there were percentages off, and there were gift cards. What did you stand in line for (or not depending on the crowd)? Some parking lots were overflowing while others looked as if no one was coming. Now perhaps that was due to some stores opening up late on Thanksgiving day or maybe by the time I and others got there their wave of shoppers had come and gone.
I did not see nor hear of any carnage from Black Friday shopping like people getting trampled or fights breaking out; maybe I just missed that news. But here are some scenes from Black Friday shopping from some lovely friends and family who sent me their experience. Represented here are Ohio, North and South Carolina, the D.C. metro area, Minnesota, and New Jersey. So tell me, did you go out and what’s the best deal you scored?
Britt from South Carolina and My Big Beautiful Life deserves a medal for her Black Friday performance! Not only was she up before the crack of dawn, she hit several stores and the gym before heading back home by 10am. I salute you, Britt. Here she is at Walmart, Belks, JCP and a cute shot of her head bow.
Shanticka from Minnesota and Spoon Full of Sugar sent in this photo of the snow and parking lot of her Best Buy. I think they were a bit busy!
My nephew (no blogger he) sent me this picture from Staples in New Jersey taken at 4:52 in the morning. Was that not a wild crowd standing in line at the door?
Karen from the D.C. Metro area of Your Stylist Karen shared the haul she was getting from the places she hit up: Macy’s, F21, H&M and Loft. Nice sweater there and did you fill up that sparkly shopping bag?
And Ashley from North Carolina of FabEllis shared mugging for the camera with her boyfriend while they stood in line for “less than two hours” at Belks in order to capture a $100 gift card for herself while boyfriend only scored a $10 gift card. How did he get short changed?
And last but not least, yours truly did a few drive by shots of other stores here in Ohio before she hit her targeted mall and shopping spots (one in particular – Saks – to be featured soon). These three had practically full lots by the time I drove past between 7 and 7:30 am.
Now just how many shopping bags could this person put in here? I don’t think that big screen television is going to fit 😉
