Below. a ‘kereta penjual’ literal translation – selling cart or carriage, under construction. ‘Kereta Penjual Gorengan’ as in the drawing is a hand drawn fried food cart, ‘gorengan’ meaning fried food. These are a common sight in Indonesia and are usually used for selling food, drinks and household items from door to door. My own version will be for displaying items for sale from the ‘Matahari’ showroom. Or as a ‘bench’ for your seedling trays?
The Kereta Penjual is now complete. Strong and mobile. Ideal for selling items at your gate or in the street.
Also please see the items for sale on the kereta, including bamboo radio, sunglasses and wind chimes etc. All at an affordable price and some with free delivery.
