    This store is really amazing– if you’re within a few hundred miles, it’s worth the drive!

    Just don’t stop by when your on vacation, well atleast not at the beginning, you WILL end up leaving with something, and it’s usually big and heavy.

    And bring a flashlight if your eyesight isn’t that great, its called the “Blackhole” for a reason folks. I think out of the 4 or so times I’ve been there, the lights were on once, and a good third of them were burnt out.

    I did pickup a pretty slick old mechanical calculator my last trip through.
