What's on sale in November?

Practically speaking, November is the first full month of the holiday season.

What commences with candy and costumes on the last night of October concludes with confetti and champagne corks on New Year's Eve.

No coincidence, then, that November also marks the beginning of serious holiday sales and specials.

"Half of the world of retail is on sale in November, whether it's a 20 percent markdown or 40 percent," says Daniel Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation. "It's a very heavy promotional month."

And November also hosts one of the most highly anticipated shopping days on the annual calendar: Black Friday.

This year, small and independent retailers are focusing on the weekend in between the two -- offering special sales, deals and buys. "And I think you'll see that trend grow," Butler says.

Want to get a good deal in November? Here are seven items where you're likely to find some good buys.
