So...I'm not really into Black Friday, never have been.  Mostly because I don't like crowds or mornings.  I do plan on doing some shopping this year though.
Emergency Essentials is having a great sale and I have 2 $10 gift cards to spend!
You can get 2 $10 gift cards as well!  Go here and here to see details.
You do need some sort of blog to take advantage of this though.  If you don't have one you could easily start one!!  You'll get $20 bucks out of it. :)  But sadly you won't get them before this sale.  Takes a couple weeks to get them in the mail.

ANYWAY, I thought we could all post some Black Friday deals on a linky!  You don't have to own the blog to link up a blog post.  In fact the blog owner would be happy for the publicity. :)  If you happen across a great post or website with a great Black Friday deal or tips on remaining unbruised...LINK IT UP!  I'll make this a tab at the top of this page so you can easily access it throughout the week.
If this seems helpful, I'll do the same for Cyber Monday.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
