Tullahoma – Bargain hunters will be in full swing on Friday, November 23 for the annual Black Friday shopping frenzy that traditionally follows Thanksgiving. For those who enjoy giving handmade items and local art, the Tullahoma Fine Arts Center plans a Black Friday Art Sale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The center will offer lots of items starting at $20 including miniature paintings, handmade jewelry and accessories, pottery, woodwork, fused glass and much more.
