Around The Horn: Black Friday Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

26 November 2021

In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. Our traditional Black Friday Horn looks at a few unusual shopping resources with links to their deals. As always, shopping with our affiliates helps support this site.

Shopping Stampede. Fujifilm X10 at f3.2, 1/340 second and ISO 100 through glass.

We've been collected these throughout what has become Black November. But we had some gratitude to dispense with before indulging in a shopping spree, so we're only publishing them now.

Many of them are good through Cyber Monday and several run even longer. Click through for the details.
