I have mentioned before that Georgians love nuts and seeds, especially fried sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and peanuts. To meet this very popular need almost every street will have at least one ‘resident’ seed seller who sits on a low stool under the shade of a tree or umbrella and sells nuts and seeds in small paper cones to passers by.
The tall person took this photo yesterday of a ‘mobile’ seed seller who has made a very clever conversion of a baby’s pram to convey her stock of sunflower seeds and peanuts. The folded paper tucked between the compartments is used to make the small cone-shaped containers for the seeds and nuts. The sellers use thick bottomed glasses to measure out the nuts, which makes it look as if you are getting more than you actually do! A small cone of sunflower seeds will usually cost 10-15 tetri, which is less than 1 US cent.
