Product Description

Knick-knack peddlers of old were vendors selling various goods. With a pole slung over their shoulder or pushing a single-wheel cart, they plied local alleys and paths. Playing a pellet drum and singing a tune about their goods, they were tirelessly on the move; similar traveling salesmen were also part of daily life in Taiwan before. With the peddler's arrival, children were excited and women intrigued by what he had. With something for everyone, the welcome sight and sounds of peddlers must have enlivened life in the past.
