Shop Shop Shoppin'

Freehold Raceway Mall Lifestyle Center

So, I am not going to lie, I was quite underwhelmed with this years Black Friday/Thanksgiving Weekend shopping. Anyone else feel that way? It seemed like many of the "deals" I picked up, after a quick "Shop Savvy" bar code scan**, I found it cheaper online ( most of the time LOL). I did work on actual Black Friday, but we went out a couple of times over the weekend. In addition to family shopping, I was keeping my eyes open for anything I might need....

I stopped by the Loft, this year they did 40% off the entire store, in the past they selected several new items and marked them way down in additional to some sort of a percent discount on the rest of the store- I kind of wish they had done that this year as well. I didn't see anything I wanted.

We ran by Target, and they had some nice, soft sweaters for $9.00, so I grabbed 2 - I don't have many sweaters - er - non-cardigan sweaters anyway. They are SUPER soft. I got one in Heather Brown and Heather Navy.

We also wandered into Talbots (of course) and they had some nice substantial cable knit sweaters for $25 each.

I got a turtleneck in "Red Rosette"

And a Vneck in a color called Glaze Blue, but I cannot seem to find the vneck on their site? Well, here is the color.

Thats pretty much it! What did you guys score? Tell me all about it!!

  1. Ok, since you were shopping, I will excuse your absence from the blogshpere (smile). I did pick up another washy floral scarf in red from Talbots (both promos used, thanks) and a ring from f21, since they were offering free shipping with no minimum...yay!!! Other than that nothing much for me. I did stock up some holidays goodies from Starbucks, like their holiday blend coffee, a couple of holiday mugs and their delicious cranberry bliss bars...yum.

    I really think the best is yet to come for me when the winter clearances take begin after Christmas.

  2. I love the glace blue color. I'm curious to see it irl and look forward to a pic of it. Let me know if you post one.

    I missed free shipping from F21 and was disappointed about that, but not ridiculously so. I think the best Black Friday deals were before T-day.

  3. Have to agree with everyone here. I think all of the deals were available before Friday and they were available before Friday too!!

  4. Haha Patina - thanks :-) I saw a red floral scarf in Talbots that I **LOVED** i bet its the one you got! What are the odds 75/25? hehe. And ITA about after Xmas sale. There is nothing better than those sales a couple of days before and a couple of days after Xmas. And a Cranberry Bliss Bar sounds DELICIOUS!!

    Gigi - I will post - i think I am going to wear it on Friday - we are having the mktg dept XMas lunch that day, and it feels festive. :0) Sorry to hear about the free shipping - F21 is notorious about not advertising their specials too well.

    Callandra - IDK what was going on this year?!!? Boo. LOL. Haha, oh well, like Miss Patina said, more $$ for after Xmas.


Thank you for posting! I respond to all comments and questions here!
