Hiya cuties!!! So Black Friday has come and gone, and I didn’t participate with The Beaux Store. I decided to wait until the FRENZY died down to pipe in about anything 🙌🏼
Now it's almost Tuesday and The Frenzy (a noun) has begun to chill the f out so I am now ready to pipe away!
Ok. So Black Friday. Personally as a consumer, I can’t handle the anxiety and **PRESSURE** that bombards me from literally every direction (influencers, brands, fellow consumers, etc) to buy buy BUY. I had so much angst in my stomach Friday that I ultimately had to turn off my phone for the night. It was literally too much!
---->That’s not to say I don’t shop at mango or arket or high street brands- I lloooveeeee pieces from them. And ya!! I def did take advantage of the sales since there were pieces I had been wanting for ages from a few high street brands. But I was stressed THE WHOLE TIME.
I am really aware of the dirty/unsustainable industry that goes mental come black friday and I don't love that. I do however love brands that inherently offset it all by simply offering handmade pieces and/or by being a small business. Even better when we are talking antiques!!!! Environmentally friendly, sustainable AND one of a kind. Heyyyoooo!
SOOOOOOO while The Beaux Store didn’t join in on the Black Friday frenzy last week, I still think it’s super important for small businesses to also participate in a very high street dominated time. So on behalf of The Beaux Store, I am going to join in, but in a syncopated (Read: out of time) fashion. Bc fashionably late is a thing. Also I am always late so. De facto...FASHIONABLE.
In honour of small businesses participating in Black Friday/Cyber Monday and offering a more sustainable option in the thick of it all, The Beaux Store will be having a sale until this Sunday December 3rd, 2017. Flash sales stress me out and I don't think anyone should be precluded from having their "forever pieces" just bc they missed the super narrow window of a sale. PLUS, I think it’s really important to surround yourself with treasure pieces but not having to rush into making hasty purchases. So hopefully 6 days is a soothing time period to have a go if you’d like (???) and then business will resume as normal.
Here is ALLLLL the info cuties:
