Since the 1960s, the street vendors of Telegraph Avenue have been fixtures here. It began as a few students and artists trying to earn a buck selling their handmade wares and has turned into a thriving and colorful open-air market. You can purchase jewelry, crockery, clothing, books, incense, pipes, bags, etc. Follow the Deadhead music to the Russell's amazing display of pottery. He can tell you stories about the late 60s, when he slept in the trees and chained his goods to the street-poles to keep the police from confiscating them. Note: Credit card acceptance varies by vendor.
