Our team is here at the Adafruit shop around the clock keeping up with the orders today for the BLACK FRIDAY sale, but we’re not the only ones in the maker world doing sales so we wanted to try to post all of them. Sure, some sell some of the same things we do, but we think this is a nice and helpful thing to do. Besides, we’re all here to help make more makers, support small businesses, open-source hardware and each other.

If we missed any post up in the comments!
