Thanksgiving & Black Friday Shopping

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you get to spend it with your family and enjoy the whole night! I am very thankful for my family. I am also thankful that we finally got my Nana (who has been in a coma the past two years) moved to a hospital closer to home so we can be with her! We can also help her more with therapy. I am thankful she has been getting better and is coming out of her coma more each day. I really have missed her..
I am also thankful for my cat, Alice. I am thankful for being able to live with my Aunts & their cats as well! All of our cats have Disney names. On my Etsy shop’s Instagram– @strandedbykylie — I share pictures of the cats every Monday. We call it #DisneyCatMonday . It’s very fun and silly as well! Here’s a happy thanksgiving from them too!


Now, since I work in retail, I have to work Black Friday of course. However, this year JCPenney has upped the ante and is opening their doors tonight– yes, on Thanksgiving– at 5pm. Last year we did the whole open at 7 and stay through the whole night crap. This year, we open 5-midnight, then on Friday 6am-9pm. Also, I have family members who work there with me! Like my mother and Heather who is basically my Aunt. Everyone in the whole store works tonight & tomorrow. Needless to say, it’s frustrating!! But as my family constantly reminds me, that’s the life of retail. And since I work tonight, I am shopping when I get off. I know, I know, it’s not cool to shop on Thanksgiving. But the games have changed since last year! Here’s our ad for tonight & tomorrow as well as on


Let’s talk about my jewelry shop a little. I am also having a Black Friday sale, Small Business Saturday & Cyber Monday. It will mostly be the same sales on items. There is a coupon code (shown in the 2nd picture below) you can use on any minimum purchase of $12! The code expires the 30th and so does the sale. You won’t want to miss out on the great sale for my handmade jewelry & scarfs! There’s more info in the pictures below. Visit and shop today!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and enjoy the Black Friday sales! Don’t forget to “Shop Small” on Small Business Saturday.
