Edgar sets up his little stand every day on Ave. Septima near 24th St. and sells snail slime. Really. Often, we stop and meet him during our bike tours.
He says the stuff treats wrinkles, stretch marks and acne. And it must be true, since I’ve never seen a snail with acne. And Edgar himself has real baby skin.
Edgar says he’s got hundreds of snails at home, working away producing the slime, which he harvests without harming the critters.
