Decked out in her pajamas and slippers, Cora Kostka reads over the sales in while having breakfast on Beach Drive during the 42nd Annual Sunrise Sale in downtown St. Petersburg in 2015. This was Kostka's second year to participate in the morning event. "I love this," Kostka said. "That's why I'm back."

Last year, the Deal Divas did this really weird thing in which we got out of bed in the middle of the night, put on FRESH pajamas and then headed to the Sunrise Sale in and around downtown St. Petersburg. It was ridiculous, made no sense and was tons of fun. Michelle stood in line for eternity to get BOGO olive oil, and Lisa feel deeply in love with a lamp (they're still going strong). Please relive all of the exploits from last year RIGHT HERE. And RIGHT HERE ALSO

Some of us will be venturing back out Thursday morning to snag bags of local goods at big discounts. It's the 43rd year of the Sunrise Sale, put on by the Downtown Business Association, and it always draws fun crowds and long lines. More than 40 shops are participating this year. Check out the Facebook page for a list of sales and places to stop. Many retaliers offer an extra discount if you show in in your PJs, so there's your incentive, other than the funny Instagrams.

The madness starts at 6:43 a.m., or, sunrise. YES, REALLY. Follow @dealdivas on Twitter for live updates, and check back here for a recap of our finds!
