We were referred to Elmers from another shop and were told this would be a “picking” type shop. Well, they do have some good options for picking, but as others have said they really have a lot of just junk or yard sale type things...More

I have been going to Elmer's for the indoor "flea market", collectables, tools, furniture, doors, and odd things for 20+ years. I love rooting around in this funky old barn! Bring a sense of adventure when you visit.
