Today is Black Friday. This is the official first day of the holiday shopping season. If you are going out to shop, good luck. Bring a buddy to stand in line for you so you can use the bathroom. Have a plan and bring your zen. I have been out shopping on Black Friday a few times. I have had some really great experiences actually. A lot of it depends on your mindset. I once spent an hour in line at the Disney store chatting with a group of fantastic ladies. We made the wait super fun! Not all experiences are like that though. These days I choose to stay home and I might shop online. But really, I started my Christmas shopping in July.
I have done a studio sale for Black Friday for years. I don't know how many because I just don't remember. I did a blog post in 2012 about Black Friday and it said I have been having a Black Friday sale for several years. So... it's been awhile. I'd say a good 10 years of Black Friday sales. This year is going to be different.
I got the idea to do a live sale and that is what I am going to do. At 3:00pm EST today I will go live on my Facebook studio page, Field of dolls Studio-custom dolls by Anne Field, and will offer up all of the stock I currently have on hand. I have dolls, chaps, cross country kits, horse boots in several styles, miniature food and some other random things I have made. I have Field of Dolls Studio trivia so you can win prizes. I am doing a door prize for the 1st and the 7th person to join the live (7 is my favorite number) and I am giving extra discounts to people who share the live video and who previously shared my Instagram/Facebook ads or video ads. There will also be extra discounts or freebies for people who purchase, on top of the main discount. This should be a lot of fun! I hope a bunch of people will come and watch and play some games with me!
