Black Friday: The Worst Deals of 2017 | Fortune

The thrill of finding a bargain on Black Friday is a real thing, but sometimes the hunt for those deals can overrule common sense. Surely, most shoppers think, these are the best prices of the year so far, right?

Wrong.

While plenty of good buys abound on this retail holiday, some aren’t as good as they seem, with items costing more than they did just a few weeks ago or stores listing products at the full retail price, but slapping the label “Black Friday deal” onto the flyer to entice shoppers.

DealNews, which regularly scans for bargains, has cast its eye upon the flood of flyers that are advertising Black Friday deals, and found some of them wanting. Here are a few ‘bargains’ that are just the opposite:

Xbox One S 500GB Console ($189.99 at GameStop) – It’s not that it’s a bad price for the console. But there are plenty of other places that will bundle a game or store credit for the same price.

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6″ eBook Reader ($89.99 at Amazon) – It’s less than the ‘list price’ for this eReader, but the deal’s really no better than what you can find regularly on Amazon (and other retailers). If you’re thinking about buying a Paperwhite, roll the dice and see if prices come down more in the weeks to come.

Nintendo Switch 32GB Console ($299 at Walmart) – Given the popularity of this console and how in-demand it’s likely to be this year, just finding one in stock is a good day. But there’s no discount here. Walmart (and every other store) is asking full retail.

Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild ($59.99 at Best Buy) – Mario’s latest adventure might be his greatest and Link’s journey in the new Zelda game is breathtaking, but just like Walmart’s ‘deal’ above, Best Buy isn’t discounting either title at all.

KitchenAid Artisan 5-Qt. Stand Mixer ($339.99 at Kohl’s) – This one’s tricky, because you’ll also get $75 Kohl’s Cash and a $60 rebate will bring the price down to $279.99. So it seems like a strong deal—but last December, the same mixer was going for $150 after rebate. And prices earlier this year have been as low as $180.

Care For Hunger Cast Iron Skillets Launch on Kickstarter December 1st

Brooklyn – Dec 1, 2017 – On December 1st FAIR Cookware will be launching a Kickstarter project, utilizing crowdsourcing to help bring cast iron skillets to your local food banks. The Christmas spirit project has an initial funding goal of $40,000, which will be used to support their long-term aim: providing 350,000 high-quality and competitively priced cast iron skillets to both consumers and people struggling with everyday essentials, based on a ‘buy one, give one’ philosophy.

FAIR Cookware skillets are based on good value for money; consumers can buy high quality cast iron skillets at competitive prices. With 4 different models – 8.5’’, 10.5’’, 12.5’’ and a grill pan (10.5”) – you can prepare almost anything in these classic and durable tools. The skillets are sampled and tested to ensure the highest standards, pre-seasoned and have a very high volumetric heat capacity. They can be used anywhere and anytime, performing beautifully on any heat source.

 “The cast iron skillets enable users not only to experience traditional cooking again, but to support their local food banks by donating main essentials for the holidays and beyond. For every skillet purchased, the backer will donate the exact same one to someone in need,” explains Joe. 

More than 46 million people in the U.S. rely on food banks and food pantries. FAIR Cookware contributes to the fight against hunger with their Care For Hunger project, helping America’s local hungry during the holiday season by providing items that are essential to daily life. Care, share and play a role.

You can support FAIR Cookware on their Kickstarter page on December 1st; starting at $15 for a donation and $59 for the Early Bird adopters. For more information, please visit FAIR Cookware on Faircookware.com.

Carleton Varney: Kips Bay Show House features a favorite designer

The Kips Bay Show House is iconic in New York City, and the designers who create spaces for the annual fundraiser are some of the finest in the business.

One of the designers, in my opinion, ranks among the finest anywhere — Susan Zises Green. In fact, Susan has decorated a space of honor, the drawing room, in the inaugural Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House, which just opened in a 1920s-era house off Flagler Drive. The proceeds benefit the Boys Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County and the Kips Bay Boys Girls Club in New York.

Susan calls her design for the room “Anglo-Indian” in style, and it is filled with color — indigo, blue, lavender and Schiaparelli pink — against a background of crisp white. The room is robust yet breezy, down to its white faux palm tree.

Susan already is well known to many Palm Beachers. She helped decorate the famous Maurice Fatio-designed house on South Ocean Boulevard that locals call the ham-and-cheese mansion because of its distinctive red brick-and-coral keystone banding. Owned by Marion and Penny Antonini, the house won the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach’s 2016 Ballinger Award for design perfection and was recognized by the Florida State Preservation Committee.

Susan keeps a busy schedule, traveling among Antigua, New York, Palm Beach and other destinations. As I have known her or quite a long time, I can tell you that she loves people and loves to create homes for her clients, homes that are likable, livable and lovely. Below are five of Susan’s design wishes for all, as she related them to me:

* Make sure every room in your home has a touch of whimsy. Your interiors should make you smile and make your friends smile too. I, like Susan, believe that people today do not smile enough.



* Nothing in your home should be so precious that you can’t enjoy it. If you happen to own a service of Flora Danica dinnerware, don’t just display it. Use it and enjoy its beauty.

* Everything in a room should be appropriate for the setting. If you live in Antigua, don’t go for silk drapery. This won’t be appropriate — and they will not be useable after the first week, thanks to the island’s famous humidity!

* Your home should be filled with joy, and that often means rooms filled with fresh colors. Yet for her clients who like muddy colors, Susan believes that’s OK, too. A client should be comfortable with the colors in his or her home.

* Above all, create a home you are happy to return to! Susan says this is an essential. Your home should be a place you really don’t want to leave.

And as for the show house itself, I send my best design and decorating wishes to all the decorators who have made this event a special plus for Palm Beach.

*

Palm Beacher Carleton Varney is president of Dorothy Draper Co., an international design firm with offices in New York, West Palm Beach, London and White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Visit CarletonVarney.com or email him at cvarney@dorothydraper.com
