Who buys this stuff?

Wander through any weekend flea market or a junk store and you will find things like this. Which makes you wonder: Just who buys stuff like this? Who buys Velvet Elvis paintings? Who buys black lawn jockeys? Somebody must, because you can always find them for sale at flea markets (which means somebody bought it in the first place). Somebody once said: “I don’t know art, but I know what I like.” Well, we don’t know junk, but we know what we hate. This particular crime against humanity was spotted at a flea market in Hillsville, VA.
