Rayela Art's Black Friday Discount: 25% Off on Etsy!

Kuba Cloth on sale on Rayela Art!

Black Friday?!!!

Doesn't sound very appealing does it?  That is the name that the day after Thanksgiving has been given here in the United States.  It has been the busiest retail day of the year for decades now.  So, what does that name mean?  Here is Wikipedia's definition:

The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.  Later an alternative explanation began to be offered: that "Black Friday" indicates the period during which retailers are turning a profit, or "in the black." Use of the term began by 1966 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975.
Specialty shops like mine, don't usually get bombarded like the big malls where people are elbowing each other, grasping for the best deal they can get.  We usually get hit early in December when the "hard to shop for" eccentric aunt or hippie niece are still on the list.  But, all of us little shops also have our fingers crossed, hoping that we can get some of the action, too.

Like everybody else, we resort to marketing and promotions.  Here it is:

(Does it feel like I am yelling?  Think of a fish vendor pushing a cart on the street....  That's me...)
I have the shop stocked with beautiful textiles, some things I have made and other cool stuff.  The discount will help in these tough economic times.  Normally, I give free shipping on purchases over $100 but can't afford to do both that and the discount.

See the link at the top of the blog where it says Etsy shops?  Click on that an you will see more from my shop.  And, I manage two other shops and have them there.  Items from all three can be shipped together for extra savings.

Let the season begin!  And, remember to visit my shop for that special person in your life!
