Whoops!!

Seems I made a mistake linking my sales for Black Fiday/Cyber Monday and they didn't show up in stores all 4 days :( To make up for the inconvenience, I will be doing a 50% off sale from Dec 1 to Dec 15!!!! Hopefully I will get it together this time...not quite sure what I did wrong last time..but I'm gonna figure it out and make it right :D  Thanks so much for understanding everyone, and for letting me know!!!
