Fun Discovery

Twin #2 and I were driving home from the Twin Cities when we decided to finally stop and check out Hot Sam's Antiques in Lakeville, MN. We've been passing this place for 12 years and have been fascinated by the items he parks along the ridge above the interstate. Over the years he's displayed a submarine, an old gasoline truck, a steel 12' shark, and steel cow and calf, etc.

It was worth the time to stop! This place is about 4 acres filled with the most breathtaking assortment of junk, displayed in fascinating arrangements. We'll be back another day to wonder the property which includes:
A log cabin filled, and I mean FILLED with everything you could possibly imagine.
A giant fire pit surrounded by office chairs.
A VW camper bus graffitied with 70's weed jargon and art.
A man made pond with antique decoys permanently afloat
