Black Friday, Philly style

Topstitch Boutique

54 N. Third St.

The ladies at this spot know what you want to see in your stocking: locally designed jewelery. Be sure to drop hints to those shopping for you about the 20 percent off sale that Topstitch is having on the eccentric Fleathers and Rabid Fox collections by Linda Smyth. All necklaces in the store will also be 20 percent off, and there will be reduced-price clothing as well.

Arcadia Boutique

819 N. Second St.

This boutique nullifies all the images you have of treacherous, early morning shopping that involves fighting through ruthless sale-hunters. Arcadia brings some class to Black Friday with their annual Black on Black sale, where anything black is 30 percent off. Think sleek dresses and leather hobo bags. Not chic enough? Everything else is 15 percent off, and there is a special selection of 60 percent off items.

Repo Records

538 South St.

Opt to sleep in and then participate in Record Store Day, an event meant to boost record sales and deter online pirating by offering special releases, limited editions and singles. If you’re fast enough you’ll find a Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings box set, an MGMT 7-inch and a Jimi Hendrix 7-inch consisting of “Little Drummer Boy” and “Auld Lang Syne” — perfect for a rock-star holiday.


38 N. Third St.

For those itching to be elbow-deep in clearance bins on Black Friday, you can head over to Sazz for their 50 percent off sale. Their selection of men’s and women’s vintage gear will have you buzzing with bargain delight. Only a very select few pieces, which are mostly collectibles, will be excluded from the sale.
