Review Highlights
A glorified junk shop!

Visit out of sheer curiosity if you like to browse this Aladdin's cave of a shop. It is fascinating!

You must not drive past Wal Mikes! He was born in my home town! Take lots of pictures, you won't be able to describe it without them. People will not believe you!!

Stopped due to the name. Very interesting and entertaining owner. He has items from current to well beyond my years. Everything from novelties to toys to kitchen wear to car parts and heating stoves. Well worth the stop and time spent.
