Black Friday Shopping 2017

Posted by

Black Friday means a huge shopping day that’s always the last Friday of November. Black Friday comes originally from the tech industry of the US. Anyhow, those sales are nowadays everywhere, including Finland where I live at the moment.


This year I was at work most Black Friday but when I got home around 9pm I started browsing the web to find out if there still is some good sales left for me. I was trying to find some cosmetics and clothing but to be honest I was too tired to think what kind of tones, etc. I wanted. So, I ended up shopping something easier.


This year I shopped from three stores:



1. From Finnish pet accessory store called ”Peten Koiratarvike” with 55€ ($65)




I bought a lot of staff (my fiancé wasn’t home so I could shop as many cool toys I wanted yeah!). I bought two different toys, plenty of training snacks, some food, Dentasticks, etc. for our pupper.



2. From sports Internet store called Fit4You with 150€ ($170)




I absolutely love gym leggings from American gym clothing brand Better Bodies. Usually those are super expensive (like 99€, $109 per piece) here in Finland but during Black Friday these were 40-50€ per piece so I had to shop two pieces of them. I also bought beige pants because of good sales. These all were in total about the price of one set of leggings, so I’d call this a great offer. Haven’t yet done any outfits with these but I will soon! So, stay tuned! 🙂



3. From Nordic sports chain XXL with 100€ ($115)




Finally I shopped some Nike stuff just before midnight from XXL. They had all Nike items -30%. I really didn’t need anything special but well, I guess I’ll though need those sports bras and socks at some point. Just wanted to shop something haha!



Did you shop anything on Black Friday? What was your best found?



  1. You got some great sales! I unfortunately didn’t get anything but it’s not a big thing in New Zealand unfortunately. Love an excuse for shopping though!


    1. Thanks for your comment, Analesha! In Finland Black Friday use to be not a big thing but during last couple years it has come big here. Probably you guys will have some great sales after Christmas? That’s usually time for sales everywhere. 🙂


  2. Same here, Australia has taken on Black Friday sales as well! I’m happy with it though because most of my purchases will be my Christmas presents! I was even prepped to wake up at 3am to secure some Black Friday sales 😂


    1. Hahaha! You were nicely in time. I was looking for some presents too but I was sooo late with my 9pm shopping that I missed the best sales this time. Anyhow, I got gifts to our puppy 😂 Thanks for your nice comment, Justine!


  3. You found some great things on sale. Lucky you! 🙂
    I skipped this year shopping on Black Friday 😀 I bought some things before Black Friday so I was like, no Zana, keep your wallet to yourself. 😀


    1. Probably they will some year soon! In Finland Black Friday was not a thing until one consumer electronics chain desided to bring it here. It has been a great success from that very first year so probably the other countries will follow. 🙂


  4. What a lovely things you’ve found! I decided not to buy anything from Black Friday sales and I’m quite glad that I didn’t. Though, I did buy D new trousers & beanie but they weren’t on sale haha.


    1. Shopping staff on Black Friday with regular price? That’s new to me haha! I’m clad though you found some nice items for him. 🙂


  5. You bought so many beautiful and stylish things! Fit4you must be an amazing online store! I was in Thessaloniki during the black Friday weekend so I bought a lot of things there. I also bought beauty products online, I will blog about them later this month. xo xo


    1. Sounds great! Black Friday is a great way to save some money and get a lot of new goodies! Cannot wait to read about your founds! 🙂


    1. Yeah, I know! And the puppy always needs new cute staff, right? 😉 My fiancé wasn’t as excited about my pet shop shopping but as you said the deals were excellent there! xx


    1. Haha, but you found something though. I don’t know if the pet food was that exciting either but I love saving some money and buying things I’ve wanted for a while. I actually started doing a list about what I should shop on that day couple months ago haha! Didn’t find everything but something nice though. 🙂


  6. nice buys!! I always get roped into black Friday but I try not to buy too much haha so II only bought some outfits for our trip to India 😛


    1. I was supposed to find some outfits and cosmetics as well but I was too lazy to go through all the options after work haha! I’m clad you found things for your trip, it will be a blast for sure! xx


  7. Glad you found things you liked. Usually I go out on Black Friday but the past couple of years I stayed home. I did buy a Panasonic Sonicare toothbrush. Thats about it 🙂


    1. Well, it’s good to have a good toothbrush, right? 🙂 I always shop online on Black Friday, I don’t like going to stores on that busy day.
