The Charlottesville Cash Mob strikes again, and this time they helped out owners of in-home businesses.
The Main Street Area, on the Downtown Mall, was filled with vendors selling things like jewelry, make-up, accessories and Tupperware products.
Members from the locally owned Wilson School of Dance entertained the crowd with dance routines in tap and ballet.
Overall, it was a way to support people with in-home businesses.
"We are trying to promote awareness on in-home sales and how it is a big part of the economy and it is needed," says Tupperware consultant Johnnie Payne. "When you see that book being passed around your office you definitely want to take a look at it because it helps support our families."
Some vendors work part-time, while others work with their in-home business full time and rely on those sales to help supplement their income.
