Rose had a store in the East Village so many
years ago and maybe 20 years ago I started seeing Rose again
in the Flea Market across the street 77 and Columbus
every single Sunday if we are here I go
just to look and just to buy. Rose always my first
stop first stop of so many people tables with piles
and piles of clothes separate place for shoes and bags whatever else
Rose would find. We went for Rose not just clothes which were usually five dollars
depending on her arbitrary criteria. Once Little Richard was at her stand
with his minions and when he left I said Rose that was Little Richard.
Esther she said. Did you think you were my only customer?
