Our first time shopping on BF. We heard so much about it, we booked our motel and heading to Pa. Should be a fun and busy weekend.:)

so with all of the ads being out now, what do you think? as much as i LOVE bf i am toying with the idea of not going :shock: i only live 5 mins from the border so i can pretty much go when i want but i'm thinking the "deals" and crowds aren't worth my time or effort. anyone else feeling disapointed right now?!

Nope not disapointed at all... We're making a weekend out of it... Won't just be BF shopping (although there will be a lot)... Besides even some items that aren't on sale will still be cheaper for us to buy so it'll be worth it.

We go down to Erie every year, even when our dollar sucked.......Love IT! And now even better with our dollar at par or better!

just an fyi!!! a friend of mine works as a guard at the border and they are pulling EVERYONE in to pay duty/taxes now! i have been going over sometimes weekly for ages now and the ONE and only time i ever got pulled in to pay was black friday last year...but with all the canadians heading south to shop, they are really cracking down! so just make sure not to spend all your money and save some to pay the taxman!

I live in Maine and went to Bangor on BF....LOTS of Canadians there the parking lots had a large amount of Canadian Plates...the people in front of me at toys r us were speaking french so I would assume that they were from Canada! The more the merrier as far as I am concerned...the news stations around here were reporting that there would be a major influx of Canadian shoppers this BF so be prepared for even longer lines than normal!
