Black Friday Roller Derby Sales Roundup, 2013 Edition

Is there any holiday combo that Americans love more than the one-two punch of overconsumption, Thanksgiving and Black Friday? I’m not sure. But we’re here to help you do your holiday shopping without even buttoning up your pants and leaving the house!

As you start thinking about holiday gifts and upgrading your gear for next season, we want to help you! Each year, Derbylife rounds up sales of derby gear, swag, and derby-owned businesses to share with our beloved readers. We hope you’ll also consider supporting our sponsors and other derby-owned businesses with your hard-earned dollars so they can keep supporting you, and us. [Editor’s Note: This listing was free to all vendors. Our sponsors are the advertisers whose ads you see running alongside our content. If you’re not seeing the ads, please check and see if you have Adblock or a similar service turned on. As a way to give thanks to us for the great stories and photos we share all year, please consider disabling those services for our site and DerbyNewsNetwork. Thanks!]
