Say Yes to Shopping this Black Friday and Small Business Saturday

If you have any energy left to shop the sales, Austin is the place to be. And if you don't, your computer is the place to be, as you can snag some of these sales over the interwebs.

Austin Shop Crawl starts tomorrow and lasts until December 4th (10 days of deals!), with tons of stores and restaurants offering discounts and donating proceeds to Toys for Tots. You can sign up online for a free badge that will allow you to save an extra 10-50% off in certain stores, take advantage of private sales, score free food, and gain access to the parties!

Waterloo Records will have a 20% off sale from 10am-12pm on regularly priced items, with tons of CD's releasing tomorrow...get there early to get your copy!

My favorite thrift store, Saver's, is offering 25% off with your Saver's card on Black Friday! Urban Outfitters is also throwing down a 50% off sale for all your new hippy hipster attire.

Kick Butt Coffee is living up to its name and offering buy one get one half off gift cards. So buy a $50 gift card, get a second $50 gift card for $25!

Natalie Stone at 12th Street Ashiatsu and Thai Massage is offering ahhhmazing massage deals through December. If Ashiatsu massage wasn't awesome enough, she takes you all the way to blissville with warm coconut oil and hot towels. Her deals include four 70 minute sessions for $200 (that's $30 off each session) or buy two Thai massages to get one free. These can be bought as a package or used as multiple gifts. Don't forget to drop my name if you do buy a massage or two, because she also gives you half off a session for every person you refer to buy a package! She also has a special deal for the holidays if you buy a gift certificate, you can get a half price session! Save money and relax? Yes.

Launch 787 is offering 40-50% discounts on gift cards ranging from food, clothes, and house cleaning! Get them while they last.

Jewelmint is offering 50% off to Austin Fashion Week readers by using this code: austin882

On small business Saturday, you can receive a $25 AMEX credit when you spend $25 dollars or more using a registered AMEX card. Keep your purchases local and help promote small businesses in Austin!

There's nothing like the holidays to make you feel a little overstuffed and a little unsexy. Luckily, you can get your groove back at Inner Diva Studios. This Friday you can purchase a 3-class card for $45 dollars, or take a class on Saturday for just $5. Gift certificates are also discounted up to $20!

Helping promote small business Saturday, a new bi-yearly city-wide event called Austin Vintage Style Fest, this Saturday and Sunday. The event is free, but you can purchase a wristband for $5 (advance) and $10 (day of), to get free food and goodies along the way. Over 50 venues are participating!

The Renegade Craft Fair is also happening this Saturday featuring local artists and crafts. The Blue Genie Art Bazaar will be kickin' off this Wednesday and going on until Christmas Eve for all you last minuters. It's free, kid-friendly, and open every day from 10am-10pm!  Stock up on handmade gifts and put a smile on a starving artist! 

This city is seriously taking it to 11!
