A Really Unusual Surplus Store


OK, here is a confession. I love surplus stores. All kinds of surplus stores and on this week’s Classic One Tank Trip, we take you back to the early 2000’s when we discovered this cross between a modernistic art gallery and industrial surplus store in Youngstown, Ohio. It was worth the trip to stroll through the aisles inside to find the weird and wonderful castoffs that could be reborn as whatever a mind could imagine. Also if you check some of our older stories you will find some other Youngstown attractions that prove that the “rustbelt” image that Youngstown is often unfairly branded with, is not true. Check out Their Metropark (The oldest in Ohio) and don’t forget, this was the birthplace of Handel’s Ice Cream. One of my favorites.

If you are looking for other places to visit don’t forget to pick up a copy of my new book, “The Best of One Tank Trips” available in major book stores or you can order a copy, autographed, on this page direct from the publisher.
