I know for sure that a few of us furniture fanatics will be out searching for some winter bargains and (of course) last minute prezzies on the 28th. Yes that's right! We're making sure we don't miss out on the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Huge sales will be featured across the country, giving a fantastic opportunity to get your last minute goodies before Christmas...
But what's it all about?
For those who are wondering: Black Friday is traditionally the first day after Thanksgiving. Largely celebrated in America; for many Thanksgiving is the last holiday before Christmas and therefore Black Friday symbolises the beginning of the count down to Christmas. The term 'Black Friday' is an accounting expression that that was coined with reference to writing profits in black and losses in red. Throughout the years stores often saw an increase in profit in the day after thanksgiving and the day was eventually named.
Without doubt anyone celebrating should be preparing for the Christmas break by now and for me that means making sure I have all those finishing touches around the home. If you're looking to go all-out this year with decorations then a good place to start could be out gifts & accessories collection, we have all sorts of beautiful décor waiting to be ordered; we have even added a few winter warmers such as throws and cushions. So get browsing and prepare for some intense retail therapy on the 28th November.
