This chapter discusses new-world customers who traded with the Jewish peddlers. It shows that Jews and their customers influenced each other's lives despite differences in race, class, religion, language, and ethnicity. The peddlers offered attractive alternatives for their customers. These included an alternative to the larger stores and opportunities to barter for goods. Jewish peddlers were also often romantically involved with their female customers, which also led to marriage.

Keywords:   Jewish peddlers, marriages, new-world customers, customers
