Joe Ades, natural born peddler, dies at 75


If you live in New York City, there's a chance you happened upon Joe Ades, in one of his signature expensive suits, sitting just barely above the ground on a short collapsible stool. He'd sit on the sidewalk for hours, usually in Union Square, peeling carrots to show off the easy handling of his $5 vegetable peelers. He made a fortune, presumably, from selling these things.
