With each year, it seems the timeline of Black Friday sales extends earlier and earlier. Several brands have already kicked off sales with some being mobile app or VIP only, with many others rolling out today and/or tomorrow. It’s tough to keep track of everything going on, I hope you find this curated list helpful! 

I’ll keep updating over the week as best I can with some of my favorite brands and individual items across several categories, with a heavy emphasis on sustainable and/or ethical brands.

To help with navigation, I’ll be using the following sections (similar to last year):

Home & Decor

  • Archer & Olive:
    • 40% off sitewide, discount applied automatically in cart
    • This is a huge sale! Perfect for someone (or yourself) who wants to get started with bullet journaling. Though my winter notebook is sold out, here are a few favorites: olive branch, wand, and green thumb. People rave about their Acrylograph pens, which are also included in the sale.
  • Brooklinen:
    • 20% off sitewide, early access begins now on select items
    • We received their Luxe Core Sheet Set as a wedding gift and they have held up very well! If you are a first time customer, you can use my referral link for $25 off $100+.
  • Always Pan:
    • On sale for $99 (normally $145) no code needed. I reviewed this pan here, and it is a great “treat yo’self” item, or it can make a great gift for a friend or family member. They also have a stacking bamboo steamer, which I wish I had!
  • West Elm:
  • Parachute:
    • 20% off sitewide, early access for shoppers with a Parachute account
    • I purchased a Brushed Cotton sheet set (sidenote: love that it has the option of excluding a flat sheet!) to go with my linen duvet set, reviewed here
  • Ruggable
    • 15% off sitewide from Thursday 11/25 – Monday 11/29 with code TGIBF21
    • I’ve reviewed their classic 8×10 rug here, their plush Morrocan runner hare, and their cushioned rug pad here. I’ve always liked this Absida Teal rug, but really love the new monochrome versions they’ve released, especially this dark green version!


Shoes & Accessories

  • Individual favorites:
    • Bloomingdales is offering a $25 off every $100 deal, which brings one of my favorites, the Veja V-10 sneakers, down to $125. If you stack this with Rakuten, Bloomingdales is offering 8% cashback, which brings them down to $115 or 25% off.
      • Even better: If you’ve never used Rakuten (I’ve posted here about it), the new user referral bonus is increased to $40 through 12/7. You can use my referral link (disclosure: I also earn a bonus) and get a pair of Vejas for effectively $75 or 50% off!
    • SSENSE has kicked off their sale: Nicholas Kirkwood Beya flats are 25 – 35% off, and many Chloe items (Marcie Bag, Mini Marcie Bag, Lauren flats) are 25% off
      • Note that SSENSE tends to continue marking down products as the month goes on – they’ll honor a one-time price adjustment within a certain time frame if you ask!
