Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘black friday

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, I hope you are having a productive and stress free day.  Last Saturday at GW Boutique aka Goodwill there was a 50% off all clothing sale.  I had thrifted the day before on Black Friday and saw a jacket that I liked, however, didn’t want to pay $8.00.  I decided to wait and if it was there the next day it was meant to be, it was as well as a few other items that are perfect to wear to work.

Cyber Generation Pleather Studded Jacket – $4.00

Jones New York blouse – white with gold thread, Chinese collar – $1.88

Dressbarn Pink Blouse with Chinese collar – $1.88

Just added a scarf from my closet

The 2012 holiday shopping weekend began with “Gray Thursday” next it was “Black Friday” on to “Small Business Saturday” and finally there was what I called, “Soulful Shopping Sunday”.   The Home Based Business Chamber of Commerce (DelMarVa Chapter) held its 2nd Annual Holiday Extravaganza at the Executive Banquet Center in Newark, DE. Outside the Banquet Center the morning air was chilly with a slight hint of mid-day snow but inside the sun streamed through glass doors creating a silhouetted pathway into a large conference room.  Inside that room were brightly covered tables of 43 vendors who were busily adding the final touches to their “stores”.  Delaware and it’s neighboring sister states have an abundance of Home Based Business entrepreneurs and this was a perfect venue for showcasing and networking.

The event began with an Opening Ceremony consisting of award presentations and recognition of members including the first and only member of the Junior Home Based Business Chamber of Commerce.  Justine D’Artist, a 12 year old young lady who creates Duct Tape accessories, roses, wallets and bags.  Each vendor was then handed the microphone to give a brief introduction of themselves and their businesses. By noon people began to trickle in and were presented with a Gift Bag and a “Visit The Vendor” form which if returned and signed by all the vendors would become a raffle ticket, eligible for a cash prize. Several of the vendors provided door prizes which were awarded throughout the day. The $5 admission fee included free Hors D’oeuvres, coloring and face painting for the kids, a live performance by Best Kept Soul, which is a local band who had people out on the dance floor.  There was also performances by Praise Dancers and the Holy Soldiers and His Embrace.

As I walked around stopping to talk to several vendors, I noted that regardless of their product or service they all had one thing in common – true passion and sheer determination. Entrepreneurs and small business owners are America’s life blood which keeps the economy strong and resilient and for that they should be commended.

Jaimie and Ira, Prez and VP of the HBB Chamber of Commerce are doing an excellent job in exposing and expanding the DelMarVa Chapter.  They have made it the fastest growing chapter and recently received the “Chamber of the Year” Award.   Currently there are 7 National Chapters and DelMarVa includes Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and DC.  As a non-profit their funding is received from sponsorship’s, events such as this and membership dues. If you are a Home Based Business owner and are interested in becoming a member, please contact Jaimie Shanklin at 302-784-5311.

This was by far the best stress-free shopping event of the weekend – shopping, eating, drinking and dancing – you can’t beat that with a stick!

Hello Friends and Happy Cyber Monday, are you shopping online today?  There are a few items that I’d like to get but nothing major so I think I’ll wait until this evening or perhaps even after the holidays for deeper discounts.  On Black Friday I didn’t go to the mall instead I went to GW Boutique (Goodwill) in Middletown, it wasn’t crowded so I was able to take my time to find a few items knowing that I would return Saturday for the 50% off sale.

Oxblood SkirtJonathan Martin Polka Dot Skirt

Dressbarn 3/4 sleeve blouse

Mix It Blouse

Style & Co. Polka Dot  Knit Top

Apt. 9 Brown and White Polka Dot Shirt Sleeve Blouse

In Vain Polka Dot  Short Sleeve Blouse

Jones New York Polka Dot Maxi Skirt

Worthington mini dot skirt

All items were $3.75 each, I would have waited until Saturday but didn’t want the hassle of relocating them and I am not one who “hides” merchandise- lol

WantedShoes.com  Leather Studded Pumps – $4.00

Givenchy Parfume Quilted tote – $2.00

Perfect size for carrying my iPad, note pad, wallet and cell phone

Holiday heels unfortunately were not my size

 

Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!

 

Hello friends and Happy Fri-Yay, Black Friday! I hope you all had a good day and if you were out shopping for deals you found some great ones! I started my day early but didn’t get out of the house until almost noon. I went to Goodwill for a little thrifting and tomorrow all clothing is 50% off so I’ll definitely be going back. This evening I attended a Home Purse Party with a friend and purchased a nice designer inspired Michael Kors bag.

I wore my black jeans and jacket today for Black Friday but changed my top, boots and bag for the Purse Party.

Hello friends and Happy FRI-YAY!!

I love this time of the year, the autumn colors are so vibrant and the air is crisp and clean ~ “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”.  Here we are, one week before the infamous “Black Friday” shopping frenzy, though some stores are opening on Thursday now being labeled as “Black Thursday”.  Will you be out shopping or standing in long lines waiting for the latest gadget or gizmo?  I’ve never done it but really want that $99.00 camera deal being advertised by Target – aah I can wait.

Today is casual Friday so I decided to wear a khaki skirt with a sweater and booties.

Attention Booties – Kmart // Khaki Skirt  – Goodwill // Khaki Creme Striped Top – Kmart

The beauty of autumn colors is breath taking!

 

Today I am linking up with Casual Chic Mom – hop on over and meet a new blogger

 

Have a fantabulous afternoon – Smooches!
