Forget Food Trucks, Harlem Designer Runs Mobile Boutique Out Of A Snack Truck

The endearing nature of being on the come up, can really inspire creative business ideas. Harlem based designer, Nneka Green-Ingram is a city bus driver who ingeniously started a accessory fashion line out of a former snack truck. “Location is everything,” the 36-year-old told DNAinfo.

Located on 125th Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, she sold metal shelves that held chips in the truck to finance a total renovation. Now, the vehicle holds her precious designs. From necklaces to eyeglasses, hand bags and rings all her pieces have an eclectic, Afrocentric feel ranging in price from $5 to $35.

    There’s a similar truck in Buffalo, NY. It’s called Mobile Soles and
    she sells shoes and accessories. I think that idea is so neat! Wish I had though of it
