Annual sidewalk sale continues Sunday in Five Points

The weather forecast for Sunday in Columbia predicts sunshine and temperatures in the mid-90s, but local small businesses in Five Points are offering plenty of good reasons to get out in the sun.

The neighborhood’s annual sidewalk sale started Friday, continued Saturday with lots of shoppers coming out, and concludes Sunday.

Whether you’re looking for clothes, shoes, decorations for homes, offices or dorm rooms, furniture, or just a really good meal, you can find it Sunday for less than you’d usually pay.

“There’s so much to choose from,” said Martha Hendrix on Saturday, stopping to chat while carrying several bags from an in-progress trip through the sidewalk sale. “And I’d always rather buy local if I can.”

Sunday’s final day of the sidewalk sale brings an extra bonus: free parking at metered spaces, since the meters are enforced only on Monday-Saturday.
