Chinese Street Vendors

Chinese consider any flat surface as an invitation to present and sell their wares. This photo is a good example of how they do it. The Chinese go to a parking lot, a subway stop, a door front, a park, you get my point.. .and then offer everything from nails to fake purses.

    I had to fix my daughters sink. She knew exactly what city block we had to go to get the parts. All lined with the first story one-car garage size ”family” store. I wondered if these scattered vendors were relatives of the tiny store fronts? The original microfranchises!
