Black Friday

In the US, today, the Friday following Thanksgiving, is known as Black Friday. It's the day when the shopping season for Christmas kicks off. I was on-line this morning buying a replacement Apple iPod Nano - mine kicked the dust yesterday. I didn't save a lot, but Apple products are rarely reduced at all, so a small savings was a plus. I have to have my tunes.

We're running the first day of three days of targeted sales at the shop today. Today we're doing 20% off Swarovski Crystals. Tomorrow we are focusing on Japanese Seed Beads and on Sunday, we're spotlighting Czech Republic Pressed Glass. I'm hoping that we will get some good sales as a result of this sale, but you can never tell. We rarely do sales at all, so at least this is more unusual than having a sale at Target or Wal-Mart.

I qualify as exhausted today - I only got four hours of sleep, and have to be sure I'm in the shop by 7am today to finish the decorating before I have to unlock for the day. I managed to begin my reviews for the Middle Earth Fan Fiction Awards yesterday, my goal is to review one story from each author and I decided to start from the back of the alphabet, just for kicks. I hope that all of you have a wonderful and savings-filled Friday.
