Any Black Friday survivors/participants out there?

So, did you brave the crowds yesterday?  We avoided them completely, the Salvation Army wasn’t the scene of a stampede at least :).  I get somewhat claustrophobic in crowds, more as I get older, and wasn’t about to even set foot in one of the big box stores yesterday.  The Farmer’s Market this morning was more my speed, with a few of the summer vendors now gone for the winter, fewer shoppers thanks to the holiday, and chattier farmers.  Rolling in the leaves rounded out the morning, definitely a good holiday. 

I’m curious though, did any of you go shopping, and how was it?

Happy rest-of-the-long weekend!
