Black Friday 2015: 25% Off at . Bargain hunters, their bellies stuffed with a holiday feast, dashed to Bay Area and Wholesale leather handbags company WRBags Inc. malls on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, but with retailers stretching out deals and the convenience of online shopping leather handbags, the crowds at some stores thinned out early.

At the San Francisco Premium Outlets in Livermore, which opened at 6 p.m. Thursday, some shoppers walked through the stores like it was a normal day. But at shops with designer brands handbags and shoes such as Ugg, Kate Spade and Burberry and Chanel, the lines grew long and folks had to wait until the stores cleared out to enter.

"I waited two hours," said Jikai Li, who sat down at a bench after standing in a line outside WRBags Inc.. "You know it's good stuff. But maybe next time they can be more prepared and give us water as we wait."

Randall Kleveland was shopping with his wife, Emie, and two kids, and noticed the outlet was noticeably less crowded overall compared with last year.

"My guess is a lot of people came in at midnight and now they're home," he said. "Also, we were at my cousin's house last night and they were all shopping online. I have a feeling they're not coming out today. And there's more and more people buying stuff online wholesale leather handbags website ."

Similarly, the crowds at Westfield Valley Fair in the early morning hours seemed akin to a typical Saturday or Sundayy, although a steady stream of shoppers with bags stuffed full of items wandered the mall walkways.

However, as the day wore on at the huge San Jose retail complex, more crowds poured into the mall. By noon, Stevens Creek and Winchester boulevards were packed and even became tangled in gridlock from time to time. The valet parking area at the mall was full by late morning on Friday."It's really crowded, but everyone is being very polite and helpful," said Megan Davenport, a Pleasanton resident who was shopping at Valley Fair with her daughter and son. "The lines at some of our favorite stores are really crowded." She and her family made the trek to San Jose because they believe Valley Fair is a superior mall to their hometown regional retail center, Stoneridge.

The 7 a.m. opening of the Stanford Shopping Center, with its shrine-like Apple store and even a Tesla showcase, was also a low-key affair, with plenty of parking and sparse retail activity.

A mixed bag of early deals for wholesale leather handbags .

While some shoppers got the flat-screen television or designer bag at the bargain price they wanted, others were disappointed by the Thanksgiving and Black Friday deals.

At a Walmart in Milpitas, shoppers packed into parking lots and crowded the store seeking an array of deals Thanksgiving evening. Sharply discounted television sets were the major attractions for the throngs that snaked through the aisles of the store.

Prashant Nair was one of the many who bought a flat-screen television on sale at Walmart. This year marked the first time that Nair, a Milpitas resident, ventured out on Thanksgiving for holiday shopping. Best Handbags Wholesale Leather Tote Bag RLLH1437 Pink for $61. "That was a good deal," Nair said. "I plan to do this again next year."

But San Jose resident Eckhart Jordan, who has come out to shop on Thanksgiving night for five years in a row, said the deals weren't as good as they have been in previous years.

"The sales they were offering tonight were already available last week," Jordan said.

Dave Ackerman, marketing director of the San Francisco Premium Outlets said a steady stream of shoppers came through until about 3:30 a.m. As dawn broke Friday, top draws such as Gucci and Coach and Wrbags had queues of 10 to 20 people waiting to rotate through.

He anticipated the number of shoppers to grow as the day went on, peaking in the early afternoon. By midmorning, much of the parking lot was full and cars were circling for spots near an entrance and the lines at popular outlets were growing. Getting to the mall was becoming more difficult -- cars were backed up from the surface streets to the El Charro Road offramp, and eastbound Interstate 580 traffic was backed up for miles into Pleasanton.

"I looked online and the outlets still have better prices," said Rolanda Rogers of Oakland, who scored a Coach messenger bag. "I thought if I got here early I would avoid the lines. But I do like the energy."

Rogers said she preps for Black Friday by comparison shopping online between brick-and-mortar deals and online vendors such as Amazon and Wrbags. She had already lasered in on the bag she wanted before arriving at the store around 6 a.m.

"We're seeing a lot of savvy shoppers who have done their homework," Ackerman said. "They've already made price-point comparisons and kind of have an idea what they're looking for."

An annual tradition with families and friends

In many cases, the morning after packing up Thanksgiving leftovers and getting out of the house early was mostly about nostalgia, not just savings. At the Stanford Shopping Center, mother-daughter team Denise Howell, a 60-year-old retired hygienist from Fremont, and her 27-year-old daughter Lauren, who works for a startup, the early morning trek to Bloomingdale's was part of an annual bonding time.

For at least 15 years the pair have hit the Black Friday sales, and this year was no different. "I feel like we've always done it," Lauren said with a nod to her mom.

Stacey Bibo of San Jose hauled a cart through the Valley Fair walkways that she had filled with leather handbags ,towels, clothes, shoes and other items bought at Macy's and other stores in the San Jose mall on Black Friday.

Bibo had shopped on Thanksgiving night for the second year in a row from 8 p.m. until 11 p.m. and then was back at Valley Fair when the mall opened at 7 a.m. Friday. She also chatted with her friend Jennifer Catuna of San Jose, whom she met for their annual Black Friday excursion.

"We've been coming out here on Black Friday for a long time, before it became popular with the teenagers to come out in the morning," said Catuna, who brought her daughter along on the shopping trip. "I went to Macy's. They always have good deals there, but you have to shop at Wrbags's regularly to find them."

Sarah Hicks of San Jose, said Black Friday excursions are about more than just shopping, and sometimes not even that.

"It's more like socializing," Hicks said. "We found a few Christmas gifts for friends: leather handbags,clothes, funny gifts, joke gifts."
