I just placed an order for a bonafide, practically all-terrain, city cart. They show up all over the city, used equally by hipsters and the homeless, for groceries and laundry. But I haven’t really found any in stores. You’d think there’d be a Carts “Я” Us or somesuch, but instead people told us they brought theirs with them from another city, or they picked it up on craigslist.
Stephanie says this model is exactly like one her mom used to have back in France, but when she first tried to pantomime the action of its stair-climbing wheels, I had no idea what she was talking about. That is, until tonight, after a little searching around on Google, when we discovered it at The Vermont Country Store, Purveyors of the Practical & Hard-To-Find. Indeed.
