The House on Mango Street Chapter 8 - Gil's Furniture Bought & Sold

Nenny and Esperanza visit the local vintage store, used pawnshop, called Gil's Furniture Bought & Sold. They goggle at the dozens of broken-down appliances and dim lights. The owner is a black man who doesn't speak much, unless a customer wants to buy something. Nenny inquires about a music box, which the owner describes as much more beautiful and useful than it actually is, until she wants to buy it. He claims that it is not for sale.
