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.

It is always a blast seeing Ivana, and finding some great deals! This is a perfect place to spend a day, because there's so much history to learn about and everyone is so friendly! Definitely worth a visit! v
