When it comes to holiday shopping, even if you start early, you’re often somehow still behind. Case in point, the pre-Black Friday events that started last week! Meanwhile, most of us are still pulling Halloween’s spider web goo out of our bushes and candy wrappers from sofa crevices. Like it or not, the holiday train has left the station and it’s speeding towards a present filled finish line. So, let’s climb aboard and find the best deals in town while we’re at it. Between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Museum Store Sunday there is no shortage of sales to fulfill your holiday gift checklist, and you may even score something for yourself.
