Flashback Friday - Cow Town

Welcome to this week's installment of Flashback Friday!  Don't know what Flashback Friday is?  Check out Christopher and Tia's blog to learn more and see how you can participate!

When I was younger, we lived in New Jersey and would, on occasion, on the weekends go to this flea market type place called Cow Town.  Once you saw this guy, you knew you had made it**:

Of course it was very crowded and filled to the brim with all sorts of interesting things.  I distinctly remember one sales man, in the corner of a building near an entrance or exit and his advertising was to loudly drawl out with his southern accent "A dollar or less, everything's a dollar or less!" Which sounded more like (read the caps with a loud, very slow tone): "a DOWL-er or less, EV-erythin's a DOWL-er or less!"  The Dowl-er or less part started out loud and ended in a lower pitched, softer mumble type thing. This is probably the thing I remember best about Cow Town.

**I did not take this picture, in fact, the picture isn't even an older one, I got it in my email recently from my Grandparents (Hi Grandma and Grandpa!) so I cropped it and lightened it to allow you to see the cowboy better, I hope this isn't cheating ;)

hahah, I just tried pronouncing all of that dollar stuff outloud, and my husband finally goes "WHAT are you doing?", haha. "Trying to be southern", I replied back.
