House & Yard Junk for Sale!

On Highway 40, about 30 miles east of Ocala, there is what I think of as a massive house and yard junk supply store.  It's so cluttered and so huge and so eclectic that it's difficult to describe it with any kind of precision.  

The first two shots show just a small portion of this enterprise.

We've stopped there a couple of times in the past but have never bought anything. Our last visit was about a month ago and I felt compelled to take some photos and share the craziness and the color of this place.

Good Lord, their neighbours must hate them!

Incredible! I imagine there are people who stop and buy things. Who would want the Statue of Liberty with light included in their yard, or Buddha? Interesting concept though to have both of them side by side. Now, if I saw that I would stop and take a photo :)

I have never, ever seen a sale quite like this! Nice topic and photos, Lowell!

Lovely captures all!! Must have been some collector!!

Holy moly! Any single one of these pieces would probably be quite enough anywhere. At this volume? The stuff of dreams. Bad dreams.

I kind of like it, as long as it's not in a residential area.

OMG...I've never seen anything quite like this before. It is simply amazing. There are a few places around here that sell those rusty metal sculptures but, nothing to compare to this vast array of....well....junk.

Oh my gosh! Never seen anything quite like this Lowell 😃 it's possible I might have slipped into my old ways and stopped to do a wee bit of fossicking:)

Outdoor hoarding. Huge place it would surely overwhelm me.

Wow, you have an eye, Lowell, to find out such interesting things out of so many junks for photography.
