Itinerant peddlers of old fascinated Europeans for centuries. These traveling salesmen and saleswomen usually sold their small goods like ribbons, threads, spices, tools, and kitchen implements to farm wives who lived a distance from town shops and market squares. These traveling merchants inspired the English and European peddler dolls of the 19th century.
