One year I went out to the King of Prussia Mall (which happens to be the size of a small city, with parking to match), drove around for 40 minutes without finding any spot for my car, and just headed back home. Black Friday shopping is not for the faint-hearted up here, and now I guess that is the case for most of the rest of the country.
This past weekend, I was in Atlanta celebrating Thanksgiving with my sister. We left the kids with our (disgruntled) husbands to catch a quick meal at Mambo Italiano and stop in to a few stores to sample the Black Friday excitement. The Forum shopping center in Norcross was positively civilized!
I was happy to do my part to support the economy when my sister took me to a store called Silver Linings (not to be confused with the plus-size bridal shop or the local classic rock dance band in Atlanta). The first sight that greeted me was a table of Kelly Rae Roberts licensed items--mugs, notebooks, canvases, figurines.
I am now the happy owner of a new mug:

Kelly Rae Roberts mug of Orange and Spice tea?
Just thought I would share my recent contribution to our nation's economy. Did you find anything fun to buy on Black Friday?
