Using techniques from the Wire to sell baked goods

26/02/2011

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.

San Francisco Cookie Merchants

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.
