    Nope!

    I'm on the seller side of the counter on Black Friday...Final weekend of the Texas Renaissance Festival...Hope lots of folks are wanting to buy stained glass and glass ornaments, which is what we have in the shop I work at...and lots of candles from where my daughter works (she does production as well as sales).

    My favorite dealer is selling all his Thanksgiving AND Christmas fabric for 50% off this week. I'm not a black Friday shopper, but I am definitely out the door running for this sale!

    I don't shop anywhere on Black Friday, especially at Malls.
    Even the roads around here are packed with cars. May in Jersey

    I don't know of a thing I could use at any reduced price that would get me out THAT early OR deal with a crowd (some rude) OR heavy traffic! I LOVE my sleep! :) :) zzzzzzzzing on Friday morning.

    I love my sleep too, but I went last year for the first time in years. I waited til about 10 a.m. and my first stop was JoAnn's!
    The lines to get fabric cut were very long, I don't remember buying fabric, but I got great deals on baking stuff and notions. I'll probably go again this year, about the same time again. Honestly, I remember most shoppers being in good moods last year, no rudeness, or if they were, it didn't get in the way of my holiday happiness.

    Grocery shopping is good on Black Friday. Most everyone else is at the mall. (I hate crowds)

    Thanksgiving is at my son's. Grandkids will come home with me to spend night so they can help decorate one of my trees on Friday. They are 7 and 6. They started helping me decorate the living room tree 3 or 4 years ago. Has been fun seeing how much higher they hang ornaments each year :P

    I try not to do ANY shopping till January. I can't stand all the crowds and long lines.
    And can someone explain why, if a store has 12 registers, they only have 6 of them open during the Xmas rush??? :?

    I used to go shopping on Black Friday years ago, no more. Don't want to take a chance on getting trampled just for a few dollars off.
    Many stores are staggering opening hours now, that may help some, and others are giving out vouchers to those in line (best buy) for certain items, I feel for anyone past the last voucher as they have probably waited for hours to get that item.
    It's not worth it.

    There are 2 days out of the year I will be at home. Day after Thanksgiving and day after Christmas. I can't afford to save all that money.

    Remember to note that there is a new revolution of sorts beginning - Small Business Saturdays. The new tradition of the Saturday after Thanksgiving has been designated to encourage shoppers to go to the small businesses with their Christmas money. Small businesses suffer the most when the economy goes bust. Help the guy (or gal) who works the hardest for the least!

    Isn't that the truth? DH always says "it's a shame when no one will allow you to pay full price" :-)

    A few years ago my Mom decided to do some shopping on black friday and wanted me to go with her. Being the good daughter that I am, I agreed. NEVER again! We now refer to black friday as "running with the bulls". I do have to mention, we did have alot of fun. However, I'm not anxious to do it again.

    I buy fabric online regardless of the day!

    I also go grocery shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. Everybody else is too full of food and too interested in 'sales' at the mall to bother with the grocery store.
