Cash & Pricing
Cash speaks at the SideWalk Sale. Many vendors accept checks and credit cards but some vendors accept cash only. If you offer cash, though, you will oftentimes get a better deal. If you see a posted price you may want to ask what the cash price is.

Just like the street markets of Taiwan, Japan, and Mexico... negotiations over prices at the SideWalk Sale in Dallas are the norm!

Most vendors at the SideWalk Sale are reputable and honest. The condition, functionality, and new/used status of what you are buying is something you should ask the seller. "Does it work?" is not an inappropriate question to ask!

If you expect a guarantee on what you are buying, be sure you understand the vendor's policy, then, ask for a receipt and a business address. Be sure the guarantee is cited or shown on the receipt.

Personal Security
Personal security at the SideWalk Sale has fortunately not been a problem. Dallas Police officers and Downtown Safety Patrol are at the sale and will address any security concerns you may have. In addition, there are usually uniformed and off-duty police officers there shopping along with everyone else.

Alcohol is not permitted on the Plaza. We are in an entertainment district and it is not uncommon to see someone who has been drinking. if they are unruly and obnoxious, they will be escorted from the Plaza or arrested.

Best time to shop
In the tradition of the SideWalk Sale, the best bargains are found early! And it makes sense, really. If what you are buying is a real bargain, its not going to remain for sale very long, right? That's why the real bargain hunters start shopping Friday night and continue all night.

The pros are standing by as the vendors park and start setting out their goods. In fact, it is not uncommon to see them looking in vendors' vehicle before the vendor can get it unloaded!

Later on, when vendors are packing up to leave, they tend to become more negotiable. A sign seen recently said "When the sun comes up, the prices come down!"

Port-o-lets are at the event and various establishments nearby have restrooms available. Nearby is Hooters and several restaurants in the West End.
