Black Friday Deals

Black Friday Deals 2020 Style!

Black Friday deals have been popping up all week. So it’s time to start holiday shopping {if you haven’t already}.

2020 shopping style is way different from years past, but we can STILL SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES no matter what kind of year we’re in – right?

Black Friday means one step closer to 2021

Hopefully with the extra time we have around the house this year we will use it to shop the local + small businesses more than big brand. {Don’t get me wrong, I have my favorite large retailers too} 😉

A quote I keep seeing a lot rings in so true for our holiday shopping::

“Shop small business THIS year so we have them to shop next year too.”

I try to be a mix of both; Shop small businesses first and then when I can’t find what I’m looking for I branch out to other good shops.

This week I’ve rounded up some of my favorites + their Black Friday deals to share with you.
