Black Friday deals for Makers – our picks #blackfriday #makerdeals

Every year we try to find some deals at other places besides Adafruit and post them right here, we also retweet sales from companies we like. We know this sounds crazy – why would ladyada and Adafruit send you to other places to purchase things? We think there isn’t one place for everyone and everything, so we wanted to share some of the places we think you might enjoy considering for your holiday purchases. We do this because we value you as a customer and as a member of this great community, we know you have a lot of choices and you value our suggestions, we also want to celebrate a few very cool maker companies too 🙂

We may have forgot a couple here and there so check back on this post for updates, we’ll do another post on monday too, we’ll also use the tag #makerdeals on twitter. This are in no order whatsoever, it’s just what we bookmarked in the last couple days. Post up your picks in the comments too, just don’t be spammy and make sure it’s something to do with the maker community.
