The Best Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) Sales

backstage at chanel pre-fall 2012

What better antidote to all the Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings than some crazy good sales and steals? I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favorite sales, but with a little twist — along with the usual suspects, I’m also including great promotions from some fantastic small businesses! Shopping small businesses is not only a great way to support up and coming entrepreneurs, but it often guarantees the gift you give (or buy  for yourself) is truly one of a kind. The best of both worlds if you ask me. Happy shopping!
