Absolutely! Nothing like getting great deals on more stuff that you don't really need.

The comments here remind me of the Yogi Berra-ism "Nobody ever goes there, it's too crowded."

Bus might be free, but last year I stepped in dog crap between 8th and 9th...Not my idea of fun.

Is it just me, or does it seem EVERY year, more like every day, parking becomes worse, not just for sidewalk sales, but for everything else? I would avoid sidewalk sales if I can't find parking. Besides, the time limits on parking do not necessarily make for enjoyable shopping experiences.

Sales taxes are nearly 10%. There are no bargains. Spend less, live better.

I don't go "downtown" (Lawrence's version of "Aggieville" for any reason, ever!

I would pay extra to avoid the crowds. Same with bars that have drink specials, no thanks, being among the masses is no deal for me.

The sidewalk sale has sucked for years - It is either crap that no one wants, garage sale quality goods at insanely high prices, or not really a sale.....Not worth the crowds or the waste of time!

I'm with Camry. I'm all for a good bargain, but the last few times I've braved the sidewalk sales, invariably there's someone (or several someones) out with the double wide or extra long off-road stroller, bashing their way through the already overcrowded sidewalks in the burning heat and their kids are miserable.

Hire a sitter for the day and leave the SUV strollers at home.

Why ? There is very little that is sold in this world today that is actually worth even half as much as it is retailed for... who needs overpriced, low-quality junk ? I get much better deals by spending a little extra time searching the thrift stores, or yard sales, garage sales, or estate sales.

too many strollers with lil bit of walk room and not enough bargains. i am not a hater just that i like to shop with comfort and not being squeezed or my heals ran over! who ever goes, have fun and take lots of water.

With 16.6% tax increase being pushed down our throats... I am moving to a survival mode.
