Street Talk 002: Black Friday Sunday, November 25, 2007

I was up at 2:45 Friday morning to shoot a Black Friday assignment for The Outlook. Being an admitted non-shopper, I was curious to know just what kind of person is out there bargain hunting in the darkest depths of night, so I brought microphone and recorder along with my camera when I visited Kohl's and Fred Meyer at NE 223rd and Glisan in Wood Village.

Among the people standing in line at Fred Meyer were three twenty-something sisters, Emily Lamarca, Martha Tracey, and Katie Tracey. These Black Friday veterans told me what the Sock Sale was all about.

I enjoyed reading through you blog and just thought I'd comment on this one since I am one of the "20-something sisters" you interviewed. I also wanted to give you a link to one of my blogs on myspace which includes out "rules" for Black Friday Shopping.
