RYE, N.Y. -- Lisa Pearl Edwards figured it was never too soon to start back to school shopping for her daughter Gé, especially with a sidewalk sale going on."We're looking for sneakers," said Edwards, looking through stacks of shoeboxes outside the Athlete's Foot on Purchase St. "She's into the funky colors this year."
Sponsored by the Rye Chamber of Commerce , local downtown businesses are participating in an annual sidewalk sale this weekend along Purchase St. Saturday is the last day of the sale, which will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Edwards, a former Rye resident and business owner, now lives in the Virgin Islands. She used to own a gift shop downtown and was glad to catch the sale while she is visiting friends and family for the summer.
Her daughter Gé will be in fifth grade next year, and she will no doubt have a pair a funky kicks that she can say she got from Rye.
