The Etsy Black Friday sale is the perfect place to turn to if you want to support small businesses and independent sellers during this capitalist week. Maybe you’re trying to do your Black Friday shopping off the beaten path… Maybe you’re channeling your inner main character who gives unique gifts your friends and family don’t even realize they need yet!
Whatever it may be: It’s no secret that a lot of us have changed our relationship to consumerism, especially during the pandemic. With the gift-giving season upon us, browsing brightly advertised sales upon sales can definitely be a shock to the system. Enter: Etsy.
Etsy has loads of independent sellers who’ve put in place their own Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotions in small batches and often handmade. While the deals are already rolling on the Etsy app, from November 25th through December 2, participating Etsy sellers will be offering discounts of up to 60% off across all categories.
It’s the perfect place to shop for customizable gifts and people with unique tastes. You have a vintage clothing lover in your life? Check. Do you want to score one-of-a-kind face masks? Double-check. Do you only want to support Black-owned businesses? Etsy’s got you covered, too.
Plus, one of the most fun added bonuses to shopping with independent sellers like these Etsy shops is your order will likely be packaged adorably and with care!
