Over the weekend I found these fantastic little gears.
Steampunk, for sure. They'll be fun for jewelry making. I love them.
But that's not the story.
The story is where I found them.
Earlier in the week, my son went to a shop in St. Paul and had begged to go back.
He said I would like it, "They have a lot of junk stuff."
It didn't take much to get me to go.
The shop is 'Ax-Man' & has been there years. Yes, junk is for sure it's speciality.
You have to have an appetite for it or you just wouldn't get it at all.
It deals in surplus - but truly no kind of surplus I've ever seen. It's really not explainable.
As in, fantastically weirdly unexplainable.
But (miracle) I had my camera with me...I'll just let my pictures do the talking.
I whipped it out when I began to see fantastic little signs like this all over the place.
Perhaps a new sign for the bathroom....
Or, in case that Halloween costume has you stumped.....
Have no fear, Ax-Man is there for you Babe.
Seriously, now I know where to go to find casters for my pallet table.
I really did love these used Water Meters. Oh the possibilities.
(did you spot my fab little 'words' book up there? it's from the book sale.)
