Black Friday was AWESOME!! It more than exceeded our expectations!! We had a blast, picked up some fabulous bargooons and arrived home tired but happy with a lot lighter wallets!
When I picked up Kim and Karen, my partners in crime, it was still dark…but by the time we arrived at our FIRST STOP, JoAnn’s Fabrics, it was light out..and sunny…promising to a gorgeous day…not that we cared!! haha
Here we are…the Happy (Giddy) Canadians in search of a bargooon or two or three!! See our buggies (mine has the big red box on top)!! EUREKA!! MOTHER LODE! We had an hours wait to have fabric cut but we really didn’t care…we were having way too much fun!
There were some SERIOUS sewers in the line-up!!
Kim was fondling Karen’s fabric…Karen was getting a little worried!
Then it was off to Kohl’s where Kim was the big winner…followed closely by Karen! I brought up the rear…but man what a rear it was!! Kim, being a first time grandma, bought a TON of Oshkosh baby clothes that Kohls was practically GIVING AWAY! That is going to one well dressed little man!
We fuelled up on bananas and water in the truck while we drove onto Westfield Mall…where we hit Macy’s next! Macy’s got a failing grade from the Canadians…sorry but 20% OFF does not cut it!
Kim and Karen spotted a Nails Spa advertising Pedicures for $14 so I dropped them off there (sheesh…not TRUE shoppers in my books…but then I’m an experienced Boxing Day Saler!:-) SO I headed for JC Penny!! MOTHER LODE!! The whole store was 60% off, with further reductions at the till!! (Insert a HAPPY DANCE here!!) I bought two REALLY cute tops (reg. $48 for $12!!) and a dress for my daughter (which she will probably hate…but I do try (to my daughters’ dismay!)
I DRAGGED myself out of JC Penny’s to pick up the TWO Bailers to find not only did they have gorgeous toes but they also had manicures and massages…. BUT I still came away the winner…I spent less and got MORE!! Mind you my hands could use major work….(I thought I took a picture of the girls having their nails done…but guess not…I must have been hallucinating by this time…)
Yup…we did have FUN!
Karen and her loot!! Her husband, Ken…doesn’t want to look!! Breath deep, Ken…breath deep!
Now Kim says she’s NOT a shopper but I’m telling you she was down right GIDDY at Kohls!!
And ME…yup…I had fun!! Sorry pups…it’s all for mama!!
Oh…and I have to tell you…we weren’t shot at, robbed or pepper sprayed once!! Would we do Black Friday again? In a heart beat!
Have a SUNNY Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P
