As you begin to devise a game plan for the official kick-off of the holiday shopping season, there’s three key things you should keep in mind:
#1.) The deals do not just begin and end on Black Friday. The next day you’ve got Small Business Saturday followed by Cyber Monday.
#2.) Most stores have extended hours thus allowing shoppers more flexibility.
#3.) Philly’s awesome independent shops and boutiques need your money far more than Target or Macy’s.

Expect a roundup of more holiday shopping events going on this weekend on Friday.
This Saturday, November 10th, Concrete Polish (716 N. 3rd St.) will be hosting Bloodmilk Jewelry’s first trunk show in years! Featuring music by Dave Tidey, drinks, and including Bloodmilk’s most popular and one-of-a-kind pieces along with Concrete Polish’s new crystals, it’s set to be a great Second Saturday in Northern Liberties!
The only thing better than a badass piece of handcrafted, eco-friendly jewelry: getting that badass piece of handcrafted, eco-friendly jewelry for half off.
That’s right, Concrete Polish has partnered with Daily Candy to offer customers either $50 off $100 worth of jewelry or $100 off a purchase of $200, both online and in store at their NoLibs showroom (716 N. Third St.).
Here’s how it works: Purchase either the $50 or $100 voucher along the side of the DailyCandy deal page. It should only take a few minutes for it to process then you can enter your voucher code in the “Discount Code” field at checkout or present the voucher in store (printed out or on your mobile device).
Although the deadline to purchase said voucher is this Tuesday at 11 p.m., technically you have till March 18 to redeem it.
In other words, should you be overwhelmed by he assortment of awesome statement pieces, don’t worry—you have plenty of time to make a decision. In fact, you may want to consider holding off till Christmas (the deal is limited to one per person, but you can get an additional voucher as long as you buy it as a gift).
Personally, what I love most about local metalsmith Angela Monaco’s pieces is the fact that I don’t need to wait for a fancy event to wear them. I’m perfectly content with my collection of $5 costume jewelry, so if I’m going to shell out the cash to buy myself a ring that doesn’t turn my finger green, you better believe it’s going to be something that I can wear everyday.
Just in case you’re not already sold, here’s an idea of what sort of treasures Concrete Polish has in store…
Concrete Polish is offering 30% off of all Root Crystal Growth Rings until midnight this Friday, July 27th with the code CRYSTALPOWER at checkout!
Angela Monaco of Concrete Polish sure has been busy…along with this awesome upcoming event at the Center City Free People (17th and Walnut) on July 25th, she’s just dropped her new website with plenty of gorgeous photos, video, and jewelry at concretepolishjewels.com!
