Going to the mall on any given Saturday is a stress-inducing experience. Going to the mall on Black Friday is something akin to slow torture. The thought of the fresh air deprivation, claustrophobic quarters, lines snaking out of doors, the inevitable mall headache and crowds, crowds, crowds, make me want to crawl back into bed just thinking about it. Friends don’t let friends shop the malls on Black Friday. Still, if this is your thing, tell us where you plan to shop and how early you got up to do it. Me, I’ll be the one meandering local shops, picking up one-of-a-kind gifts and experiencing no body checks in the process. To see what local shops are offering deals, go here. To tell us about your favorite Baristaville store and the gifts you buy there, leave your suggestions in comments.
