Wild Bill’s Emporium Adventure

So, this happened today-

I read that there was a tribute to The Cadillac Ranch in Connecticut, right outside of Hartford, MADE OF YUGOS!!! We made the trip this afternoon and, well, it was a little lackluster. The Yugos, unfortunately, are not where the story should be. They are located in front of Wild Bills Nostalgia Center. . .  NOW, LET’S CHAT ABOUT THAT!

Wild Bill collects old amusement park fun houses! He keeps them in a big yard adjacent to his miraculous store full of fun. Concert posters, collectibles, buttons, t-shirts, record albums, Atari games, old MAD Magazines, Fangoria Magazines, polyester leisure suits for $10!!! A lovely bearded Dead Head named, you guessed it, Wild Bill runs it all. It is organized and FANTASTIC! I loved it. So did the boys—grudgingly.

About peikleberry

What's to say? I'm a chronic fun seeker and life marrow sucker. I live in an ancient brick house in a darling town with my perfect and tolerant husband, my two amazing teenagers (The Giant and The Ginger) and two blue Danes (Oliver and Periwinkle). A lover of obscure roadside attractions and museums of oddity, I travel, write, laugh, make friends, write letters, sometimes run, eat great food and drink good whiskey. I've never had a bad journey and every single day is my grandest adventure.
