A perfect fall day put people in the mood to shop.

Thomasville's annual Sidewalk Sale (10/2) attracted residents and visitors looking for a good deal.

"It was a beautiful day and I knew there was a sidewalk sale, so I decided I'd come downtown, just kind of enjoy the weather...I've got my little girls with me today, so I thought they might enjoy a stroll, and just to support the community," said mother of two Katrina Tubbs.

Shopkeepers say the Sidewalk Sale is a voluntary event in which stores downtown can participate.

At the beginning of the day, stores will set up tables full of merchandise at bargain prices,and with the country in a time of economic hardship, shopkeepers say this a great way to draw people who otherwise might not be able to afford to shop.

But on thebeautiful fall day, the worry of financial hardship seemed far away; the friendly faces and frequent laughter were signs that residents weren't just there to shop--they were here to set their worries aside, if only for a little while.

The Sidewalk Sale also gives locals an opportunity to make a little extra money by selling their homemade goods, such as jams, jellies, and bread.
