This Car's Trunk Is Open for Illegal Chinese BusinessS Street vendors in China are a common sight—even those peddling their wares from the back of their car. These vendors sell everything from small animals to counterfeit handbags any thing that can fit in an automobile trunk.


This photo, taken by Darnell Gardner Jr. is of a street vendor in Gulou Beijing selling goods from his trunk. Apart from what you see inside (perfume, nail polish, and cellphone covers), this vendor is also advertising that he provides other goods. Each little cardboard strip denotes a product or service he provides. From iPhone 4s to 3D TV adapters, it seems this guy has everything.

Street vending in China is of course illegal and by the looks of this trunk, much of it's content is too.
