From the name, it sounded like a place to buy recycled building products, and it is, but there's also a "village" of weird and wonderful memorabilia.
It's not like any other reconstructed period attraction - this village consists of original items and they're placed in various rooms according to their purpose. There's a bakery, complete with moulding bread, a schoolroom, a movie theatre, complete with "Mama Mia" playing to dummies dressed up in fine clothes in the back row.
It's nothing like a museum - some of the items are sitting out in the weather, rotting away with hens and turkeys climbing over them. And nothing is clean. Some rooms are so full of stuff you can't even get inside them. But it is intriguing. I doubt you'll ever see anything like it. Well worth a look. Great for photos.
