Shop Local: Black Friday Boutique Shopping

It's Black Friday and that means the Super Bowl of shopping is upon us. If you saw my post on 12th & Broad this week, you know I'm all about making holiday shopping as stress free as possible. My strategy...shop local. I find some of the best deals at local boutiques and the shopping experience is 100 times more enjoyable. Here's my guide to some of the best boutique sales happening Friday through the weekend. Good luck! 8th Avenue

House of Stella - House of Stella might have the most fun on Thanksgiving night. They started a tradition a few years ago at their Cool Springs location of opening at 6pm on Thanksgiving night and staying open until at least midnight. They have continued the tradition at their 8th Ave location. The entire store will be 10% off, there will be special door buster deals, other in-store specials and more! Friday hours will be 10am-6pm.

Nashville Boutique Black Friday Sales

The Black Friday frenzy is officially here. I don't know about you, but all these Black Friday television commercials are making me feel a little anxious. I prefer to shop without 800 people hovering around me, so you'll find me shopping our local boutiques as much as I can. I've checked out a few of my favorites this week and they have some great gift items that you're going to be much happier giving and receiving. This Saturday is Small Business Saturday, but really every day should be a day that you support local businesses. It makes a huge impact in our community and they're the businesses that are making this city a cool place to be. We need to show them some love as often as we can, so start this weekend! 12 South

That means, however, that The Cotton Mill will be closing at the end of the year. I hate to see this wonderful boutique close its doors after 25 years, but sometimes all good things must come to an end. Stop by, wish them well and get some great deals through the end of December.
