This week is packed with news, from time capsule homes, to amazing shoe collections being discovered, there’s plenty vintage treasures hidden all around us! Also, I am very much looking forward to the upcoming sales that are coming our way. I know many feel like Black Friday is a huge scam, choosing not to shop. I completely agree, to a point.
When I was in my late teens, I went out shopping on Black Friday a couple of times, each time was disappointing. How crazy the people appear, the grabbing, the messes that staff have to deal with afterwards, its awful! Plus, it’s the day after Thanksgiving, everyone should be digesting their delicious dinners from the night before and relaxing. Then there’s Cyber Monday… I am already getting email about it all. I have a good method of dealing with this: if you are shopping for the holidays or birthdays, and know the items you’re looking for, focus your energies on ONLY those items. Hey, even if they’re for you. For example, I have a giant wishlist on Pinterest, if those items go on amazing sales, maybe I will chose to invest in them at that point, otherwise, don’t fall in to the trap of “saving” and getting the best “deals” in town. You’ll end up spending loads more on stuff you didn’t want/need in the first place.
I do believe in small businesses and putting my spending money toward supporting them. You won’t see me going to H&M on a Black Friday again! I rather buy a small piece of vintage jewelry or a frock from the past or repto vintage from small companies who love what they do!
Anyhow, I’d love to hear about any vintage sales you guys may have heard about or any news that I didn’t include in this post! 🙂 Let’s get to it:
