Just like the title of the post says, we're going Black Friday shopping in Old Town, and I'm going to be live tweeting it! We may still be stuffed from Thanksgiving dinner, but that doesn't mean we'll be missing out on good deals.

Wendy has had a plan to wake up bright and early to hit the Old Town boutique district and their great Black Friday sales. The discounts occur in phases, with the early risers saving the most. From 6:00am - 8:00am, shoppers at participating stores can save 30%!! If you'd like to learn more, just check out the Old Town Boutique District's Black Friday page.

So she'll be hitting the stores first thing in the morning, and I'll be coming along to carry bags and Tweet about the experience. You can either follow the adventure on twitter, or just watch on this page as the tweets auto update. I've got to get to bed. We need to get up in only about five and a half hours. We hope you enjoy following our adventure.
