    The weekend after Thanksgiving isn't all about major appliances and gadgets. Find a little something for yourself at a unique store.

    While Black Friday intrigues, most of the time we're not in the market for a hulking electronic or the type of things that get the lion's share of the advertising for the day. We're interested in one-of-a-kind clothing, or jewelry, or products that just happen to be discounted. So after you haul that 47-incher into the back of the wagon, spin by a few of these post-Black Friday sales to see special things at special prices:

    THE LAB: Not only is this one of our favorite complexes to gaze upon in all of the OC, but the concept ("Anti-Mall") is fab. While there are a few chaineries here and there, look for stores like Harlow and Great Laundry (all t-shirts that practically vow to get the wearer compliments). The Lab's Midnight Madness sale is on from 7PM-12AM on Saturday, November 29.

    EVA FRANCO AT XIN BOUTIQUE: Pretty frocks and handbags and more dress-you-up stuff. Even if you don't yet have any parties to wear the clothes to this season, it seems like buying a little something can goose the invites. Friday and Saturday, November 28 and 29. Xin on Melrose, 8064 Melrose, Los Angeles.

    Still want the bigger television? Check out the sales at all the major retailers. We're just saying measure your front door before you go, because, well, we've been there. And no one wants to watch "Lost" while sitting on a wet front lawn.
