Ever been to Axman Surplus? It's a a small chain of stores in the Twin Cities area - they carry all sorts of bizarre things. A lot of it is aimed at the art community, and so you can even see some of the art inside the store. It was a really rainy day today and I had an hour to kill so I asked if I could take some shots and, well, here they are hehe. 1. One of the greatest things about Axman is the signs they use to sell things. This one reads "On the outside it seemed like little Joey had it all, but he just couldn't stop thinking about the wooden handles that his mom never gave him. This all consuming obsession has made Joey one of the main causes for the depletion of the rain forests. You see, he now makes wooden handles." 2. This is a rangefinder for a World War 2 tank. I believe the asking price was something like $7000 3. Spooky Glass Negatives. I think these are neat - I keep wanting to buy some but I don't know what I'd do with them hehe. 4. Dozens of motors for sale! 5. What you see standing from floor to ceiling is a decommisioned US Air Force missile. Right behind it is an Iron Lung. 6. Dozens of tiny oval speakers, 15 cents each 7. "Fight the Patriarchy" pencil cases. In case you can't read all of the writing on the case it says "Smart women elect to make the difference" 8. There was a large cardboard box, something like 4 feet high, 5 feet wide and 5 feet long, filled with nothing but rubber baby arms and legs 9. Some of the many 'art pieces' hanging throughout the store - most built by employees. 10. Looking for a movie camera? Here's one, slightly used, great condition 11. Another sign, this one advertising 4 foot safety cords.
