To all those in America, Happy (early) Turkey Day!
Here at Lolita Collective Headquarters we really love the deals that come the day after - especially when it's from a small independent manufacturer. Some of the larger stores are up to something too, and if they are alternative fashion relevant, we'd love to know about them.
Many of our favorites have begun to announce their specials for this fabulous shopping Black Friday holiday. Here's what we've heard so far...
Take 25% off storewide with code BLACK17. Discount applies to sale merchandise, gift cards, and already rock bottom pricing.
The Black Ribbon
Stocked with soft petticoats, our friends over at the Black Ribbon aim to please with their special. Get Free shipping with this code on their website.
We love Puvi's kitschy goth style. For Small Business Saturday Puvi is offering a (nearly) storewide discount! Everything except clothing and new series will be 25% off! No coupon code necessary, the discount will show up automatically when browsing. No discount on her Existence is Futile series, but if you purchase items from Existence is Futile totaling $50 or more she will send you an accessory from the set with your order for free. That's pretty cool!
Lucky Packs will also be listed. The quantity is very limited, so get them while you can!
Need some fierceness in your wardrobe? Look no further than Hard Decora's amazing selection of aggressive t-shirts. Use this code on her website to get 15% off t-shirts! A real deal.
We heard through the grapevine that the lovely cutsew creator Nemeth Wild will be also doing a 20% off sale. The comfort of her bloomers are legendary, so that discount goes a long way. The sale isn't up yet, but should be available for Black Friday.
Looking to buy a second-hand item? Look no further than the Lolita fashion website powerhouse once known as Lace Market. Now called Circlly this site has multiple channels for different fashion styles. We've definitely picked up some lightly used pieces from our favorite Japanese designers through this site. Many sellers have opted to get involved in their Black Friday sale so who knows what the deals will be!
Every Small Business Saturday I find myself with another shopping cart full of Sweet Mildred's classic hair accessories and Lucky Packs! As usual she's got a great sale planned for this special day.
Cotton Candy Feet
Get a couple friends together and support this amazing Brazilian shoe company. Their holographic line is to die for, and the bags they've begun producing are super cool! If you order three pairs of shoes, you get this bag for free. I'll probably just end up buying all three pairs for myself...
I Do Declare
Time to get dark and spooky with the latest update from I Do Declare. Their Small Business Saturday will feature 10% of all purchases over $100 for Saturday only. A coupon code will be posted, and when it is, we will update it here!
Paradise Rose Shop
Adorable bear ears and classic rose accessories are all available at a special price reduction starting tomorrow. We love her clip on classic rose lace old school Lolita style headdresses and star clips. Use code PRS2017 to take 20% off of a purchase over $10!
