Green Friday

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Local vendors turned out to put their own spin on Black Friday. 

Vendors sold art, crafts and locally grown produce at a "Green Friday" event in Downtown Alexandria. 

Some of the items, like the custom phone covers and birdhouses were sold with the holidays in mind. 

Those participating say it's a welcome break from the stress of shopping at major retailers on Black Friday.

"Come out and support your local vendors, people who are making stuff locally and instead of spending your money on stuff that's made in China and being sold at Wal-Mart then you can spend it on stuff that's being made by local people," said John Bankovic.

Vendors also collected coat donations for Cenla's homeless population.
