Black Friday Sales and Tips 

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day in America and as each year goes by, more and more international businesses jump on the bandwagon meaning everyone gets to snag a bargain. Always on the Friday after Thanksgiving, it’s known for making headlines due to unruly and violent behaviour from shoppers… So I’m thankful that I can do my shopping from the comfort of home!

This year it falls next Friday, the 25th of November.

In the vintage reproduction world, it’s typical for you to get the biggest discounts of the year on Black Friday. Some websites like Pinup Girl Clothing crash due to the sheer volume of visitors and customers trying to check-out!


There’s a few things you can do and prepare for to help ensure you don’t miss out on what you are after-

-If you have particular websites you are looking to purchase from, look up exactly what time the sale starts and convert it to your local time if you are not from country of the websites origin. For instance, the Pinup Girl Clothing Sale starts at midnight on the Friday Nov 25th PST so that’s 7am here in London, UK.

-Plan your wish-list and know what items are your priority for ordering. If you absolutely can’t live without it, consider buying it before Black Friday to avoid disappointment.

Be prepared to wake up in the middle of the night to snag the items you are after. Things can sell out VERY quickly so you need to get your order in as fast as you can.

Websites may potentially crash. Pinup Girl Clothing does every year without fail. If you want it bad enough, keep at it until the order finally is confirmed (this took me 2 hours last year). Prepare yourself for the possibility that items may sell out in your size while you are waiting for it to process.

Double check all your PayPal details are correct– is your credit card is up to date and the primary shipping address is current? Have your credit card handy as well just in case PayPal isn’t working.

-Sometimes great discounts can be not so great once you’ve had to add on shipping. Try to pre-plan with friends to do combined orders to share the cost of shipping and get a better deal.

-Make sure you take into consideration any taxes you might be charged when the package enters your country. Sometimes instead of doing one big order, it can work better to do two smaller orders to avoid this.

  1. Will you be updating this list as things are announced? I only ask because this is the most comprehensive list of places I want to shop I have seen! Thank you so much for putting it together ….. PS I follow Jubly-Umph on social media and I could have sworn their Black Friday sale had already started.

  2. This is such an amazing list! I probably won’t get to participate in Black Friday sales, but it’s SO nice to just see a list of all of the places you can go to shop reproduction! Thank you for putting this together!

  3. Thank you Miss Victory Violet, great tips. I am really needing more petti’s and know what I need from Malco but was not a registered user, so all set and have my wishlist sorted so hoping it will be straight forward process 🙂

  4. You have so many Emmy Design pieces I thought it would be worth asking if you know of any stockists that will be having a sale? I’m dying to buy my first pieces

    • Hmmm good question… I know a lot of the stockists that had the cardigans (if that’s what you are after) have sold out already and it seems that most stockists are also more uk/Europe based which doesn’t necessarily they’ll do a BF sale. I’ll let you know if I think of anything but currently i don’t know if any sorry x
