When Thanksgiving starts to roll around, the media is swarmed with Black Friday deals. The craziness even starts before Thanksgiving dinner has been eaten. My question is, do you participate in Black Friday?
I love good deals more than anyone, but I do not like fighting the crowd to get them. I prefer shopping online from home. I tend to get stressed out when people are pushing and shoving me. My rule is if the parking lot is packed, I’m gonna pass.
But for businesses, they rely on the sales to jump start the holiday season. I own two home based businesses and I do offer sales on Black Friday. But I don’t have a brick and mortar store. I operate solely upon internet sales and craft shows.
Tomorrow happens to be Small Business Saturday and I’m happy to say that I’m having a holiday open house with some friends that have their own businesses too. We are offering holiday sales as well as cookies and hot chocolate.
If you’d like to check out our deals, here is my Lilla Rose website:
