First off, thanx to everyone that made Black Friday a huge success, in the store as well as online!! It was a great day of shopping, fun, and connecting with lots of awesome people!
By 9 AM, we had a line down the block and people eagerly waiting online ready to go. The hot items off the bat were the Rhymesayers USB, Prof NYE Show Tickets, Mixed Bag Sticker Pack, and $4.99 Local Artist CDS!
We've changed the Black Friday Shopping Tab on the site to a "Holiday Deals" tab. You can go there now and still see what is left from our exclusive items, including the new Rhymesayers Rorschach T Shirts/Poster, our new FE Exclusive CD release: Grip Grand & MF Shalem "Rewinder" and new designs from Fifth Element and Nice City!!
There were also 4 Mixed Bags that I had put to the side so we didnt' oversell them because they were so limited and with heavy site traffic we weren't able to add them to inventory until later, so those have now been added and are the last ones so if you missed out, get it NOW!
Speaking of heavy site traffic, I know that made some shopping difficult for people. We apologize and I assure you we are looking at several options to fix these issues for our new site updates for 2012!! It seems the biggest effected sale, was the site not saving the sale information for ALL 7"/10" at 15% off and ALL Box Sets at 10% Off. To adjust for that, those deals are available online until Midnight tonight!
Also, take a look at the Holiday deals tab on the site to see what exclusive and limited items are still available + get some great gift ideas such as Rhymesayers CDs at $9.99, Lots of awesome Books, Discount Clothing, New Hats, and more!!
Thanx again to everyone who shopped in-store or online, to all our interns and helpers, and all the artists who came thru to be part of the day; Brother Ali, P.O.S, Toki Wright, Big Quarters, MaLLy, St Paul Slim, M.anifest, Astronautalis, & Prof. Also, special shout to Prof and the Stophouse fam for bringing the most action-packed "Rock Paper Scissors" Contest I had ever seen to the store. The winner walked away with a pair of tickets to his Sold Out NYE show!!
Here's a video that recaps the day:
