Black Friday, Fayetteville Style

My husband Rad and I went to visit his family in Fayetteville, Tennessee for Thanksgiving. It is a relatively small town with about 7000 residents and a quintessential Southern downtown square with a courhouse in the center. We sat around Thursday evening talking about Black Friday and the happenings at the local Wal-Mart. My mother-in-law and two nephews braved the midnight crowd, while Rad and opted to wake up at dawn to meet the rising sun. We drove south to the Alabama state line after a lackluster sunrise at the Wal-Mart and returned to Fayetteville by 8 a.m. to have breakfast at the Chuck Wagon Diner. After breakfast, we hit the local circuit of Goodwill stores and scored some second-hand bargains. These photos are from Thanksgiving night and our travels the next day.
