It’s Black Friday.
First we stuff ourselves (remind you of anything? like a turkey perhaps?) to the point that we have to loosen our jeans, lay out flat, and sweat profusely while our digestive system does its best to handle the flood of food. Then we stay up all night, camp outside in the freezing cold, and count down until the doors open at our local shopping complex. But we aren’t buying concert tickets, we’re just looking to save an extra $10.
Daniel likes Black Friday.
He’s comfortable shouldering people out of the way to get to the coveted doohickey – or at least giving the scary grandma in the corner that just grabbed the last SIX thingamajigs the stink eye. Going toe to toe over an electronic doodad isn’t completely out of the question.
I’ve never understood this “holiday”. At all. I’m a stick-in-the-mud, spend our family time singing, 2 guitars, a fiddle and an upright bass girl. Banjo optional. I don’t mind the crowds and I looooove a good deal. But I still hate Black Friday. I don’t like that Black Friday “sales” now start November 1st. I don’t like that stores are staying open on Thanksgiving, or opening up at 4pm so as to entice people away from family time. I don’t like that it pulls families apart because someone has to staff the stores.
I like Cyber Monday.
Cyber Monday I can get behind. Cup of coffee in hand, seven different windows open on my laptop, comparing prices and running down coupons on my phone apps. In my pjs. Nothing but net Pun intended.
I can get up early, order the new goodies, and still be around to put the kids on the school bus. It’s a kinder, gentler way to save on the products you love. So for both Black Friday and Cyber Monday we are offering you a chance to purchase Troutman Photography gift cards without the hassle of having to wrestle someone to the ground or even leave the house for them. If that’s not a big enough incentive we’re doing a Buy One Get One free sale on gift cards.
These make perfect gifts. Or, this can be a great way to save on the portraits you’ve been putting off. The gift cards never expire and you can hold on to our cards and schedule your session when the weather nicer, when your relatives are in town or any time that fits your schedule.
We’ve also tried to make it as easy as we can to order. Feel free to purchase securely with PayPal by following the link at the bottom of the page or order by phone by calling 503-871-5505. Our phones lines will be open Friday Nov. 29th and Dec.1, 9am-6pm. This sale is only good for those two days and then it’s gone!
So there it is…two easy-peasy ways to save on the gift of quality portraits. But if you’re like Daniel and prefer the full contact shopping experience, stop by our studio and he’ll wrestle you for it!
Have a good one,
Oh, yeah. Happy Thanksgiving!
