Who Buys This Stuff?

How does this company stay in business?
Who would spend this kind of money for these items?

Well, that violin is a Yamaha. They are real instruments and have real price tags.

The rest looks like crap.

I know people who would buy the veggie shaver (and then of course be disappointed when it didn't work, because it's clearly cheap plastic and a dull blade.)

We have a veggie spaghetti maker we use it for zucchini bread, and slaw. We got it from the "As Seen On TV" section at Walgreen's, it cost less than $10.00 and we've had it for more than ten years. And we use the hell out of it.

That $10 item would be $40 at this place.

I'd call it a potato sharpener.
