Guerrilla Retail, Haight-Ashbury

Woman rents a basement storage room in a building at Masonic and Waller, a block up from Haight Street. She operates a house-clearing service down the Peninsula- trucking away all the crap that no one wants when someone dies- and on random Sundays holds a "garage" sale. Tourists marvel at the charm. Rent under $100 a month. All cash transcations, no permits, no fees, no sales tax collected.

Haight-Ashbury, where bureaucracy and gentrification still cannot penetrate. Priceless.
