Yesterday we visited Larry's Antiques & Things in Old Cottonwood. This business fills an amazing two acres and consists of four totally full buildings. The oldest part of the main building was constructed in 1889. The store started as a gas station then became a feed store for the next 40 years and has been used as an antique store for over 20 years. Apparently Larry started in the antique business in 1991 in a house in Glendale. After 16 years, he decided to move the business to Cottonwood and it took him more than a year to move his antiques. It required several semi's to get it all here. Wow!

It's hard to imagine that anyone could come up with some type of antique or collectible that Larry's doesn't have. "There's probably more than a million items here," he said. "We buy, sell, trade and rent." He often rents period items for movie sets. Larry's has so much space, indoors and outdoors, filled with collectible items that he says "it takes some people four or five hours to browse through everything. A lot of people use this as a museum."

All I can say is that for an avid antique and vintage crap freak this store really fits the bill. While most of the areas were mixed, there were organized sections. There was a section with old gas cans/memorabilia, a section dedicated to Coke and McDonald collectibles, old boot spurs, as well as furniture, jewelry, clothes, etc. Then you step outside, and there's more.. Old railroad signs, vehicles, old gas pumps, cash registers, rocking chairs, tools, bar signs... It just goes on and on. We didn't buy anything, but from the prices we saw, they seemed reasonable. And we had a cool couple of hours checking things out!
