  • One man’s junk is another man’s hillbilly folk art. It truly makes me happy that places and people like this still exist. We stopped here for 20 minutes for a quick break on vacation. The owner...  more »

  • This place is Hillbilly Paradise! Accidentally hound this place while riding around back roads in KY during a camping trip. This crazy little place was the highlight of the whole trip! The hillbilly folk art was funny, creepy, and interesting. (Be prepared for a LOT of bad puns) The toy collection was astonishing to say the least and the owner Keith informed us that he only has 20% of the collection on display. In addition to all that they have a cool little vintage store on the property that used to be the general store for the area in the 1930s and it still contains many of it's original items. Bonnie and Clyde stayed there, and even left behind a shotgun which is on display. If you love vintage roadside tourist attractions this place is a must-see. If you love toys or ever played with toys when you were a child, this place is a nostalgic must see. If you dig antiques and cool old history also another must see! Take the drive and go visit this place and make sure to leave a healthy donation, because the owners operate this place strictly out of the genetosity of the visitors hearts. I'd love to see them be able to expand it to the other 80% of the toy collection!
  • My son and I stopped in for a quick visit this evening. This is a beautiful property hosted by a beautiful family. Keith is so knowledgable and friendly. I cant wait to go back with my wife and go through his pun garden. The toys are awesome and Keith's creativity is inspiring. Give them a visit if you can.
