HERE COMES " THE PEDDLER TRUCK"

Never before have I lived in a place where folks sold so many things in front of their homes ,shops, the side of the roads, also a lot of them take their wears on the road, and drive up and down the streets and by-ways peddling their wears.I love it and many times it saves me a trip to the market . It brings back childhood memories when my Uncle Oren use to take




his produce and put in the back of his pick-up and take it to sell in the Big City of Union S.C., and in the streets and at the market place, and us kids would ride along with him, and go door to door and tell the people that the produce man was here , and we got to eat all the apples we wanted, what a side benefit that was for us kids that normally only got apples at Christmas in our stockings or when we could grab one off the neighbors tree on the way home from school. I remember those days well. I remember that later my Uncle Oren was the Watkins man and he sold all kinds of house wears and supplies. I remember my Mother buying from him plates and stuff and I can really remember the vanilla flavoring he sold , was in a big brown bottle , wow how these memories popped into my head ,when the peddler man came by . Do you have memories of the peddlers coming thru your neighborhoods , or do you still have a few that pass your way???
I took a few pictures of the Peddler Man and his truck  , hope you enjoy the pictures .Ciejay is picking out some plants and potting soil and I think see's getting a few new orchids .

MJ, you know they even bring around food already to eat , dinner and supper on wheels. Don't get much better than that and we're having a great summer here in the middle of the country and it's been a very nice rainy season sooooo far . thanks for the read and comment and take care hugs to the wife and baby girl.

Malcolm - I'm always amazed at the variety of peddlers that travel through Wilai's village. It's a bit like a giant Jumble sale on wheels. I must admit I haven't seen one selling plants and flowers yet but if they do Wilai will stop it for sure.

Have fun in the sun.
