Ballard Gives Black Friday!

BallardGivesBlack

We will be closed on Thanksgiving, enjoying the holiday with our families.  And we won't be offering any doorbusters at 6 AM either.  Those things are cool, they're just not really us.

 

We, along with several other Ballard businesses, are celebrating our shop's biggest day (and, thanks to you, it will be our biggest day!) by doing something a little more socially conscious this year. This'll be our forth year doing it this way, and we're proud to say we've raised a whole lot of books and money for our charity. Again this year, we're donating a portion of all sales the Friday after Thanksgiving to

 

 

because we are in total alignment with their mandate to get new books into the hands of kids that need them the most.   The books the organization most wants will be displayed and discounted for you, making it easier to fill their coffers.  Page Ahead Volunteers will be on hand to tell you more about the good the organization does. And in addition, we'll also give a cash percentage of our big day directly to them.

For the complete list of participating Ballard business, along with the non-profit they've slected to support on Give Black Friday, click here.

When you shop locally, three times the revenue remains in your community. Non-profit organizations receive an average of 250% more support from local business owners than they do from non-locally owned businesses. The other super cool thing we're doing this Black Friday is

Secret Garden Book Angels, 4rd Annual

100+ Elfin Shoes displayed around our shop represent children's names, ages, and their heart's desire in the form of a new book. They've been collected by our phenomenal friend Michele Bacon, in close association with three local schools. Michele has spoken to the people in each school who know their kids best, and together they've identified the ones least likely to receive a new book for the holidays this year. Then, the school representative has done a bit of investigative work, in order to find out what sort of book each kid would most like if only they could receive one. 

Pick an Elf Shoe, and choose a book or gift certificate. When you bring it up to our front counter, you'll get a discount on the book and we'll wrap it and make sure it gets hand delivered to the proper school before the start of winter recess.

We'll be doing our customary free wrap-job on all your purchases that day as well. We do it every day of the year!

We look forward to seeing you here for this because it is so good and wonderful!
