I'll sell to you, if only to get you out of sight as soon as possible.

The street vendor is a merchant on the New Vegas Strip, hawking everything from tourist memorabilia to cheap food and drinks.

Background

Although only one street vendor appears in-game, it can be inferred from her dialogue that several more exist. The street vendor mentions that they are heavily taxed by Mr. House at a rate of 50% of their income but continue to operate on the Strip for the security it provides.[1] However, she is not allowed to sell alcoholic beverages as they are the exclusive products of the casinos.[2]

She doesn't mind the restrictions and loves New Vegas, believing that she's living the life of a person from before the Great War (or "a thousand years ago", in her words),[3] as she can afford to eat and not have to worry about someone trying to kill her, unlike in North Vegas.[1] The majority of her clientele are soldiers on furlough.[3]

Notes

  • She does not sell any alcoholic beverages, chems or weapons.
  • She will sell items for true value if the player character is accepted in the Strip, and buy them for true value if the player character is liked or more.
  • She will refuse to barter with the player character if they have low reputation with the Strip, stating: "I don't deal with unwanted people, leave me alone."

Appearances

The street vendor appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "Do you work for one of the casinos?"
    Street vendor: "Nope, strictly independent. Well... kind of independent. To vend anything here on the Strip, you got to register with one of those police robots and sign a franchisee agreement. At the end of each day, you keep half of what you made. The rest, you hand over to those bots - and they know if you're cheating. Yep, he makes the rules. It's steep, but it sure beats living in North Vegas. Here on the Strip I can afford to eat, and no one tries to kill me."

  2. The Courier: "What do you sell?"
    Street vendor: "Non-alcoholic beverages and snack foods. The casinos get to sell booze. No one else does."

  3. 3.0 3.1 The Courier: "Tell me about the Strip."
    Street vendor: "It's the most amazing place in the world, don't you think? This must be what it was like to live a thousand years ago! There are three casinos open for business - Gomorrah, The Tops, and the Ultra-Luxe. This here's the monorail station leading in from Camp McCarran. Most of my business is with soldiers coming and going on furlough."
