In modern colloquia, today is Black Friday, the annual day the American retail market reduces the cost of merchandise to reap in record-breaking sales.

It was fascinating to me to witness their sticker prices, however I have no concept of what such dollar amounts equate with modern prices. So behold! The annotated list with current 2012 prices adjusted for inflation.
