Black Friday (The Semi-Selfish Version)


Welcome today, the now infamous Black Friday.  A day that’s almost grown to be a holiday in its own right.  A day when shoppers are up at 3 AM, and have caused life-threatening stampedes by 5AM.

All in the name of deep discounts and door busters galore.

We know this day of frenzied consumption is supposed to be about shopping for other people, but with so many irresistible deals out there, why not pick up a little something for yourself?

If you are of a more selfless breed than us, the pretty picks from ThePLEAT seen here, also make lovely gifts for any of the ladies (or classy drag queens) in your life.

We’ve also hightlighted what’s happening for Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals and events, from a selection of our go-to stores and sites . . . drum roll, please!
