Finding that special item at a next to nothing price! Taken at the Gaithersburg Flea Market. Happy Silly Tuesday! (And I was totally disappointed that nobody bought the Salad Shooter!)

A salad shooter? That sounds kind of cool Elaine! The woman in the photo is engrossed in her findings, she looks like she could be a regular at flea markets. A great photo and funny too.... happy silliness day!!

@Carol: I know. What else will they come up with! You put vegetables (like radishes, carrots, etc.) in the top of the salad shooter and press the button and they come out all cut up. You just shoot it into your salad bowl. Popular quite a few years ago.

Flea markets are such fun! One man's garbage is another man's treasure! Nicely captured Elaine! ;-)
