ABOUT YANKEE PEDDLER
We are a design and animation company specializing in commercial, character, and documentary projects. We take our cues from the original Yankee Peddlers.
Yankee Peddlers were the early American door-to-door sales force. They were also called carpetbaggers, nutmeggers, hucksters and rainmakers. They sold rare items, new inventions and timeless products. Look around, if you have something that others don’t, chances are you met with a Yankee Peddler.
