On Black Friday, you expect to see the long lines of bargain shoppers, but there’s one person you might not expect to meet.

Friends and strangers in line were calling her the “Queen of Black Friday.”

Sheri Mayberry has been shopping with her cousin, Carla Lowe, on Thanksgiving night for many years. But Mayberry said she thinks of herself as something other than a queen on Black Friday night.

“I consider myself the comedian of Black Friday,” Mayberry said. “I try to entertain the troops.”

Mayberry said it started with a Black Friday trip to Meijer several years ago. She camped out for 9 hours outside the store, and by the end had made friends with everyone there.

“Nobody can beat her,” Lowe said. “There's just no way. She can find anybody – a stranger – and make them her friend.”

The two cousins have been planning out their shopping route for weeks and said within 24 hours, their Christmas shopping will be complete.
