Electronics topped consumers’ shopping lists last week, when self-purchasing proved stronger than shopping for gifts. However, toys were also strong, and some heavily promoted apparel and footwear fared well.

Among the Black Friday bestsellers:

• Deep-discounted Toshiba and Emerson flat-screen TVs.

• Smartphones and tablets.

• Furbys, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3

• Footwear, particularly boots. Nike Air Max and Rampage boots scored big.

• Coats, mainly fashion outerwear and leather jackets, including Levi’s at $99.

• Cashmere sweaters across the price spectrum.

• Oversize fuzzy throws.

• Small kitchen appliances, specifically one-cup coffeemakers.
