The market is tumbling towards the end of the week, with the All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) slipping 0.78% lower. Fortunately, not all ASX All Ords shares are joining the index in its suffering.

These three stocks are posting notable gains on Friday. Keep reading to find out what's buoying their share prices amid today's sea of red.

3 ASX All Ords shares defying today's downturn

Sezzle Inc (ASX: SZL)

The share price of All Ords BNPL favourite Sezzle has climbed back on the horse today, recovering some of the 57% fall it posted over the first four days of the week.

Right now, the Sezzle share price is trading 2.5% higher at 20.5 cents.

The company binned its planned multi-million-dollar merger with fellow ASX BNPL favourite Zip Co Ltd (ASX: ZIP) earlier this week.

Its stock plummeted nearly 39% when the news was released on Tuesday before slipping another 22% on Wednesday.

Michael Hill International Ltd (ASX: MHJ)

Sezzle is joined in the green today by shares in its ASX All Ords peer Michael Hill.

The jewellery retailer's share price has lifted 3.7% to trade at $1.12 right now.

Its gains come on the back of a trading update detailing decent growth in the June quarter, topping off a strong full year of sales, released after the market closed on Thursday

The company's managing director and CEO Daniel Bracken commented on its recent performance, saying:

I'm delighted with our full year trading results, despite the continued backdrop of COVID disruptions and the resulting loss of 10,000 store trading days, we have delivered the highest sales and margin in the history of the Michael Hill brand.

Booktopia Group Ltd (ASX: BKG)

The final ASX All Ords share recording a decent gain on Friday is Booktopia.

Its share price is currently 33.5 cents, 8.06% higher than its previous close.

There's been no news from the online book retailer today.

However, its shares tumbled nearly 5% yesterday when the company announced it had dumped its CEO Tony Nash following an internal business review.
