I hope that you all had a bomb ass Thanksgiving holiday. I visitied my sister-in-law so that means that the food wasn’t nearly as good as I am used to. Homegirl will get there one day.

In the meantime I wanted to give you ladies an advance heads up on where to go to avoid some of the madness that is the Christmas holiday shopping season.

1) Avoid stores that Black people frequent. TARGET, TOYS ‘R’ US, and any sporting goods stores. I say this knowing full well that we Black folk are much more diverse than simply people that buy sneakers and too much stuff for our babies, but if you want to avoid the jig masses…

2) For big box stores try IKEA and BED, BATH and BEYOND. MARSHALL’s and T.J.MAXX coud also provide some great inexpensive gifts that have a high quality.

3) Ladies! By all means avoid CENTURY 21. From now until the 24th of December the shoe section in CENTURY 21 will be renamed CAT FIGHT ALLEY. You can only imagine why.
