Well for those of you that what out early or last night, those of us that stayed home or stayed warm in our beds t his morning want to hear all about it. I couldn't believe the lines they showed at the best Buy, Target etc. My daughter and I almost went out last night and I'm so glad we didn't. I think I"m going to Joanns tomorrow have some quilting fabric on sale and there's another 25% off order coupon for tomorrow. Going to veg today maybe do some sewing. At least I don't have to cook.

This morning I went to Hancock's and bought two slimline Ott Lites, each one was reduced from $59.99 down to $19.99 as a Friday Doorbuster. All sewing and quilting notions were 50% off, so I bought leather buttons, a rhinestone belt buckle, a Fons & Porter mechanical pencil with white ceramic lead, and a June Tailor Quarter Cut slotted ruler for rotary cutters. I spent $75 and got $185 worth of stuff.

I went to work at 11:30 at night and got off of work at 11:30 this morning. At my store we we're busy for the first 3 hrs. our store did about 400,000.00 in that time. then we we're quite for a while then it got busy again. I did some straighting and filling in. I won't know ontil tommorrow if we hit a million dollar day.
I heard some things that went on at wallmart. I have a co-worker that did some shopping at walmart. She wanted a certain game and a lady came right up to her and took it right out of her hands.
Pretty bold of that other lady. I don't know how the other store did. but my store had no stupid people that did anything. They we're all pretty nice.
Well that is my black friday.

So far.. I got a REAL air compressor with gun etc.. for my home dec.. a big one.. not just a small air gun one. DH got some bargains to .. we only went to Lowes. haven't hit Home Depot yet. We love tools around here ..

I hit Joanns for the flannel. It wasn't nearly as busy as usual on a Black Friday, but then I was there at 8:30 or 9:00. Hopefully it will pick up this afternoon.

Second haul ... home now.. and off to do some net shopping next.
I didnt' get up in the early morning hours.. in fact we slept in. had leisurely coffee and then went together for the first trip out.
Tomorrow I will be going it alone .. he will stay home with the dogs so I don't have to hurry back..
Had I not felt like shopping today I would have just skipped it altogether.. but I felt good.. and we needed a couple of the items we bought.. so woo hoo.. saved on those by waiting for these sales.

Just hope I do feel like shopping tomorrow.. the traffic wasn't bad today at all.. and lots of parking spaces too.

Checked my dealer's website and found a Black Friday coupon for 50% of any regular priced item up to $25.00. With a toss-up between embroidery scissors and bobbins, I went for the bobbins. (phone order) Big spender here

JoAnn's is on the agenda for tomorrow.

Are any of you looking at the tool ads for Lowe's, Home Depot and Sears? The combo kits are usually a good buy at this time of year.

My store was a lot busier this year than last. We opened at 5am to lines and a packed parking lot. Almost all the customers were nice and in a good mood. The managers(3 guys) of my department all dressed in black to honor Black Friday, they claimed..the customers were laughing at them all morning. We had some good sales advertised and the customers seemed to be buying lots..not one or two items, but full shopping carts..
Maybe tomorrow, I'll go to JoAnn's..too tired after work!

I'll be interested if you get the 25% off. I went later on this morning to buy a whole 5 yards of flannel for some pj's at the $1.49 price. However, when I tried to use my 25% off entire order, the sales person said it didn't apply to the "doorbuster deals". At the time I figured there was some fine print I'd missed. However, rereading the coupon, I didn't see anything anywhere about not applying to fabric, sale or not. Just check your receipt and be prepared to stand your ground. I also had some 50% off jewelry wire that they said also didn't count (which I just let them keep since I was getting miffed)

I really like my flannel though, at $1.49, even without further discount, is a nice price.
