Mignonne Décor is participating in the bay area's "Plaid Friday" on Friday, November 27, 2009.
The day after Thanksgiving traditionally kicks off the holiday shopping season and is known to be one of the most popular shopping days of the year. It isn't an 'official' holiday, but because it always follows Thanksgiving Thursday, many people take this Friday off. Because lots of stores hold promotions on this day as well, the combination means lots of folks out and about.
The term associated with this day is "Black Friday" and it has negative connotations associated with the headaches it can give in terms of overcrowding, traffic, etc
In recent years, there has been a growing movement towards supporting local, independent businesses in the community versus large, national (or multinational) corporations. Particularly in the SF and East Bay Area communities, local consumers celebrate and appreciate their local business owners and seek ways to provide their support.
Two local businesses, Blankspace Gallery and the Compound Gallery, have founded an alternative to Black Friday and coined "Plaid Friday" as another means for shoppers to support their local East Bay businesses and help them thrive, particularly in our recent more difficult economy.
Mignonne Décor is joining in the fun and will be offering a 20% discount on everything in our shop (except original artwork) on Plaid Friday. In addition, we will have some edible treats to share when you stop by to visit us!

Our shop specializes in furniture revamping. You can always bring in a piece of your own as well and we can charge just for the service! All of our pieces are one-of-a kind, signed and dated.
This beautiful antique craftsman secretary is also new in store! The secretary is made of solid oak. It is an unique conversation piece, and would look great in a living room, hallway, or kitchen to organize bills, and display books etc.. It is a great size for a petite area, because it is not too deep, so could work really well to optimize that small or shallow space! Priced at $425.00.
We just keep the great furniture coming!
