A huge thank you needs to go to Tabitha from A la Mode Media. I was having some complications with the website yesterday and if it wasn't for her, you wouldn't be reading this sale post right now. She rocks and if you're looking for someone to help you with your social media or online marketing strategy, she's your woman. Now that all that Black Friday frenzy has passed, you still have presents to buy, right? Thankfully, it's another full weekend of sales and events. There are plenty of trunk shows, holiday markets and special sales to go around at some of our favorite local shops.
Make sure you check out our Shop for those times when you just want to shop online and don't forget you can take 20% off your purchase through Dec. 17 (if you need to ship) at whats-in-store.com.
