There’s a neat place here in Maine called Elmer’s Barn, an antique/junk store which is located on rt 17 in Cooper’s Mills. Earlier this week myself and a close friend went to visit this 4 story barn that is stocked to the gills with relics from days gone past. It has a little bit of everything you can imagine and then some… a bit over priced on quite a lot of the items for sale but I was able to find a few things, mostly old photographs and old magazines for a quite reasonable price of $1.-$2.00 a piece.
I love visiting places like this because you never know what you may find long since hidden or where the visual cues that surround will take you. Looking at all these past remembrances of days gone by you feel like you stepped back into another time and at times, especially here in Elmer’s Barn, another reality.
While looking around I got curious and opened a drawer in an old bureau and found this print of the Mona Lisa laying there.. which happened to be an interesting coincidence, i.e inside story between me and my friend..
