Black Friday – not in this home

I had an appointment first thing and was planning to go busking after. When I drove into town however I could not get a parking space; town was rammed with people probably looking for a bargain.

Good luck to them, but I don’t do Black Friday. I don’t like the rampant consumerism. All the images of people climbing over each other to get a bargain are probable hyped but based somewhere in truth. And because I don’t agree with it as a consumer I cannot in all integrity offer ‘Black Friday Deals’. True enough if you were going to buy it anyway then it’s nice to get a discount I guess, but then that’s not really the rationale behind Black Friday.

I’m happy to offer discounts, for example if I don’t have the yarn you like available on a market day I will happily take off postage when you buy online. If you really love my stuff and make a fair offer at a market, again I’m happy to consider it. Just not some random discount just to satisfy some big business consumerist drive. I’m a small business, I work from home, my home values are in my work.

So today I’m at home, not buying anything and catching up on admin and housework. Oh and making a leek, broccoli and coconut Dahl. I’ve made stacks and I’m going to freeze some of it. YEY!!
