Black Friday In A Pandemic…

Libby discusses how to navigate Black Friday sales safely & sustainably during this pandemic.

With November rolling around we look forward to a number of things: Thanksgiving, Guy Fawkes Night, and Black Friday sales. Unfortunately, the unexpected twists and turns 2020 has taken will alter all of these holidays we look forward to. As much as we love the excitement of Black Friday sales, and taking advantage of shopping our favorite fashion trends at a cheaper price, we need to face reality: this year will be different. So how do we ensure our safety and take advantage of the November sales? Well, I do have some good news. According to The Telegraph, we are expected to see some of the biggest discounts in history this year and many retailers plan on beginning sales early. But, with a pandemic, and now tier-three lockdown, the idea of in-person shopping becomes increasingly unappealing. This is why I highly recommend browsing online sales as opposed to those that are in person. I’m sure with lockdown we have all become familiar with online shopping and spending our money on things that are a little bit questionable… But the big question is how can we shop safely and sustainably this November?

As I mentioned before, the busy atmosphere of Black Friday shopping will not be as present this year with COVID restrictions, and many retailers extension of their sales over a course of a week. This takes away the stress of Black Friday, you won’t have to worry about making the most of the sales in such a short time. With a simple “Black Friday” google search you will notice many big brands like TopShop and Mango are preparing for their sales, but when we bring up the idea of shopping sustainably it might not be best to give our money to these companies that tend to be unethical. Instead, we may want to focus on vintage and sustainable clothing brands.

Vintage clothing companies such as Beyond Retro Vintage Clothing are hosting online sales. Beyond Retro Vintage Clothing sells vintage clothing online for both men and women, and not only are they having a sale up to 70 percent off but they also give students a discount. They have an extremely wide selection of clothing in which you can shop by brand, era, and style. In terms of sustainability, they upcycle vintage clothing and aim to reclaim ten billion items. They are an eco-friendly business recycling all packaging and using sustainable transportation of items. I highly recommend checking out their website and learning more about this company! (They also have a ton of vintage Christmas sweaters available right now).

If you are looking for the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to something nice and take advantage of November sales the consignment store TheRealReal is also hosting an online sale. You can find second-hand designer purses and clothing on this website. This Black Friday they are having up to a 75 percent discount on a select range of items. You also receive 25-pound in-store credit when signing up. I purchased my favorite bag second-hand from TheRealReal and it came in great condition and with an authenticity card so I can attest to their reliability.

It is no surprise that November sales will be different this year, but it does not mean you don’t have to participate. Whether you’re browsing online sales or going to stores in person to buy gifts for the Holidays and maybe treat yourself to something nice I encourage you all to make the most of it and stay safe.

  9. Taman kohtalokkaan paatoksen jalkeen valtio seisoi Baden-Badenin rinnalla ja teki esimerkillisia ponnisteluja sen muuttamiseksi tyypilliseksi saksalaiseksi terveyskylpylaksi. Tassa yhteydessa perustettiin ensimmainen kylpylakomitea huolehtimaan tulevasta sosiaalisesta ja kulttuurisesta ohjelmasta. Altaiden lisaksi ulkotiloissa oli aurinkotuoleja seka nurmikkoalue omien evaiden syomista varten. Meilla ei evaita ollut mukana, mutta onneksi kylpylan ravintola oli kohtuullisesti hinnoiteltu. Oma lounaani, tuhti ja maukas hampurilainen salaatilla seka iso olut, maksoi 12 euroa. Maksu hoitui katevasti rannekkeella, eli rahamassin sai jattaa ihan rauhassa lukkojen taakse vaatekaappiin. http://jokeritpeli68.image-perth.org/dingo-casino-14-free ZenSpin on panostanut asiakaspalveluun joka näkyy muun muassa chatin aukioloaikoina.

  10. Perinteikäs Katajanokan ympärijuoksu – Skatudden runt järjestetään tiistaina 3.9.2019. Ilmoittautuminen alkaa klo 15.45 Katajanokan ala-asteen aulassa, Laivastokuja 6. Juoksut alkavat klo 17.00.Ensimmäisinä juoksevat 2015-2016 syntyneet. Joka sarjan kolme parasta palkitaan, ja kaikki juoksijat saavat kunniakirjat. Uusia nettikasinoita tuli markkinoille paljon varsinkin 2010-luvun alkupuoliskolla. Silloin oli opittu jo monistamaan nettikasinoita usein pieninkin muutoksin ja alalla oli viela enemman tilaa. Aikanaan ei ollut viela valmista kasinoalustaa, jossa kasinopeleja olisi voinut pyorittaa, joten runsaampia maara kasinoita antoi odottaa 2010-luvulle saakka. Toisaalta viime vuosikymmenen lopussa kasinoita ei tullut enaa ihan samalla tahdilla markkinoille, koska kilpailua pelaajista alkoi olla jo siihen malliin, ettei kaikille kasinoille riittanyt pelaajia enaa kannattavaa maaraa. http://aerobatics.tillee.com/community/profile/jill74h08495337/ Me esittelemme sivustollamme nimemme mukaisesti vain uudet kasinot, joista suurin osa on kuluvana vuonna pinnalle putkahtaneita kasinoalan superlupauksia. Koska uusia tulokkaita on tyrkylla paljon, paivitamme listallemme vain ne uudet kasinot, jotka tayttavat ylla mainitut kriteerit. Kyllä vain! Ihan kuten tavalliset kasinot, myös pikakasinoiden kohdalla pelilisenssit kertovat paljon kasinon luotettavuudesta. Voi jopa sanoa, että kasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä ovat turvallisempia, koska luotettava ja turvallinen Trustly toimii kolmantena osapuolena pelaajan ja nettikasinon välillä.  Pelaajan ei myöskään tarvitse jakaa mitään omia tietoja minnekään. Koska erillistä pelitiliä ei ole, ei kukaan voi myöskään esimerkiksi kaapata pelaajan käyttäjää ja sen mahdollisia varoja.

    to them as well? This might be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had
