With the summer weather arriving, every corner seems to have someone selling something you may (or may not) need.  Here is a sampling of my favorites:

Eat your fruit…

Browse for a book…

A woman’s gotta accessorize…

If you’re hungry, there’s nothing like a hot dog or pretzel (I think he’s even selling one to the bus driver!)

Capped off with some refreshing ice-cream!

    hi i was in new york last month and saw the same jewelry vendor there and loved the pieces they offered! I was wondering if you knew the name of the designer or where they got the jewelry from?

    thanks, Bailey

    • Hi Bailey,

      Thanks so much for your comment. Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of the jewelry designers (I was too shy to actually approach the vendors I photographed that day.) However, both were on Broadway in the 79th-85th Street areas. If you come back to NY, I’d bet that the same vendors would be in those locations. If I DO see them again, I’ll take a closer look and try to find out more information for you.

      With all best wishes,
