Using techniques from the Wire to sell baked goods
This is the most wonderful idea, and maybe very appropriate for my market-street neighborhood:
These cookie bakers sell and deliver their cookies by string: they dangle a note out their window, someone gives it a tug and attaches payment, and then they deliver the cookie on the same string to the customer waiting on the street below.
Don’t they get a lot of folks pulling the string as a joke? Maybe the kids are a lot better behaved in San Francisco.
oooh – update I hadn’t noticed at first – they’ve been busted.
