Barclay's Urgent Eclecticism

 

continued

Add this to the mix: a rack of inexpensive though classic Van Heusen men's dress shirts. Heikkinen can explain those. "You get a lawyer at lunchtime, spills ketchup on himself, has to change, what's he going to do?"--a scenario that has played out a few times now to Heikkinen's satisfaction. The other clothes have been selling too: "This past month we did eighty-five sales, and I tell you, it's a lot more fun being in here now. You get traffic, you get to talk to people. I'm not in here all day playing Sudoko on the computer and reading three books a month."

Finally, there's a candy-apple-red electric motor scooter in the window, made by Current Motor Company, a local start-up on Jackson Road that Heikkenen is happy to shill for. The thing is huge--think Harley, not Vespa. "You know," he quips, "my wife's from Bangkok, and there you could fit an entire family of five on here with a baby in the cargo case."
