If someone had a black duffle bag, they were definitely selling something.

Thursday’s Eagles parade was the opportunity of a lifetime for many of the city’s eager hustlers. With an estimated 3 million people in the city, there was so much opportunity to make a quick buck. And people got creative. Right out of their black duffle bags and shopping carts, everything from t-shirts and hats to furs and perfume were on sale at the historic event. Here are a few shots of the city’s hardworking hustlers in action.

This was the first vendor I came across early Thursday morning. He was loud and clear — this was a deal that shouldn’t be passed up.

This table setup was pure dedication. Sales kept rolling like clockwork.

This shirt speaks for itself. And yes, it’s one shirt. The t-shirts at the top display the front design. The shirts at the bottom show the design on the back.

People were hungry and this man came prepared. Check out that stack of pretzels and his wad of cash.

I’m pretty sure everyone wearing these “America” eagles hats got them from this guy. His gloves give off bird vibes, too.

All this man needed was a small ledge and a dream.

All these guys needed was the ground. This T-shirt pit was a hit. And, is that a fur?

This guy came down from the Bronx, New York to make a few dollars. “I couldn’t miss this opportunity,” he told me. He was perfectly positioned next to the long line of people waiting to enter the 13th Street Market-Frankford line station.

I’m really glad these old-school shopping carts made an appearance.

Shades mean business.

And, of course, there was someone selling Marc Jacobs’ Daisy fragrance for $20.
