This gentleman is like many who come to Quartzsite each year. They rent a space and set up shop selling whatever they have to sell. His patch of desert dirt is close to a main intersection of traffic as far as Quartzsite goes. He paid $2000 for this spot which is good for the entire season of Sept. 15 through April 15. If you look at it as rent, well $2000 for seven months is a good deal. He has electrical hook-ups with that price. He was screwing down his display cases to the table when I was there browsing through his
junk merchandise. He told me that last year someone walked off with an entire display case. I said that I couldn’t imagine someone bold enough to do that in broad daylight but he said they came in at night. Well I wouldn’t mess with him day or night for he was packing a gun on his hip.
Now this woman has a great idea for making some money. Bless her heart for I don’t even like to shop for myself. And then to consider giving her a list of things to pick up for me at Walmart, geez I have a hard enough time deciding what to get when I am there how on earth can I tell someone else?
I wonder where the gentleman with the shop gets all his merchandise. I see Elvis up on the top shelf, and Gumby on a lower one. I suppose it's legal to carry a gun on your hip? Loaded or not? I wonder if he's ever shot anyone.
Some people do chance it asking more that something is worth makes you wonder how long they have had it
