Elmer’s Barn of Junk and Dead Things pretty much delivers what it says on the tin: it’s a large barn, belonging to Elmer, and it’s stuffed full of junk and a few dead things, though there is not so many of the dead things of late. This store has been in existence for just over 40 years, and in its lifetime has been improved and expanded significantly. It now stretches over three floors and includes an antique mall with almost 50 vendors and is quite the sight to behold.

Whatever might be desired as a useful addition to a household or as a decorative object-cum-conversation starter, it is certain to be found in Elmer’s Barn of Junk and Dead Things. The owners have a lifetime of knowledge of the second-hand industry and ensure that there is a wide and unique range of goods on offer in the barn. They certainly have an eye for the unusual, and visiting Elmer’s Barn is always an inspiring treat. It is certainly something different from the average flea market!

There are a few antique and collectable items in Elmer’s Barn of Junk and Dead Things, but these are more likely to be stumbled upon by accident than found highlighted in a display. Where to start with listing what might be found here? Examples of taxidermy, once common, are still found throughout. There are old photographs, items of furniture, slightly creepy dolls or parts of dolls, rusty old tools, trunks, hinges, salt and pepper shakers and matchbox cars. One really needs to see it to believe it.

Located in Coopers Mills right outside of Augusta, Elmer’s Barn of Junk and Dead Things is a bit of a road trip to get there, but it is certainly worth it for a look around. It really is one of a kind!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
