An old crone going from door to door, selling apples - nothing suspicious here... Just ask Snow White!

I get the feeling that we've met the crone before.

What, a clock? A sophisticated piece of machinery filled with cogs and springs?

I just liked the idea of the uncomfortable silence underscored by that ticking noise in the background...

Hey, at least it's not electric!
Aaand it may actually be a family heirloom, originally from... well, we'll see that soon... ;-)

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, after all! (Except when they cause you to need a doctor...)

When I was a kid, we still had a milkman (though in our specific case, it was a milkwoman) showing up at our door.
Granted though, she was significantly less creepy than this door-to-door seller...

We still have milkmen in Seattle for people who sign up!
but not applewomen
