Yesterday was not only Black Friday, but also 'Buy Nothing Day'. A day protesting consumerism.
Members of the 'Occupy Tallahassee' movement celebrated their own version of 'Buy Nothing Day' Friday. The group held a free market where anyone could pick up or donate goods free of charge.
"It was a functional alternative to actually going out, camping in front of large institutional retailer stores and buying and going into debt," says Ralph Wilson of the Occupy Tallahassee movement.
Wilson says the goods at yesterday's free market ranged from toys, to clothing to food. He says he would like to see free market held regularly.
