Usui Reiki Master Linda Graveline will be offering discounts at her 5029 York Boulevard location, as well.

"I'd like to offer Reiki sessions and Gift Certificates for a 20% discount ($100 / usual price is $125) throughout 2013," Graveline said. "Please mention this offer when you schedule your session. For Gift Certificates email me at linda@reiki-la.com or call 213-200-2977."

Thanks David! To clarify, the sessions bought on Saturday can be used throughout 2013 and people can just email or call to purchase them as I do have some clients that day and may not be able to answer the door if they stop by.

I do wish you had mentioned some of the stores on York that were open on Black Friday. Your article implied all of us were closed on Friday. So don't forget about the whole York Shopping District. We all have cool things going on for the holiday season. I'm making hand blown glass ornaments...
