I recently read an article that explained that Black Friday was just hype. That the so called “deals” at department stores and bricks and mortar retailers were really just psychological number games. People get caught up in the frenzy of the sale and totally forget to analyze whether they are actually saving anything. To me, even if there were real deals, there is no way I’d risk my life (people get trampled!) or that much of my time and energy just to save a few bucks. Have you seen the parking lots at malls on the day after Thanksgiving? I personally have better things to do with my time. 🙂
Seriously…..stay safe….stay home and support hard working self-representing artisans. Thank you and happy shopping!
