Last week my family and I went shoe shopping at the Shoe Box in Black Earth, Wisconsin and afterwards headed out to some junk/surplus shops to look for steampunk pieces for my mom. The weather was amazing.
We made an emergency coffee stop at McDonalds because after two hours of shoe shopping none of us had yet had any coffee! We all got hazelnut iced lattes.
After the coffee stop we picked up some sandwich supplies and fruit from a Piggly Wiggly before eating at a park in a zoo (what zoo I have no idea-I googled zoos in Wisconsin and I couldn't find anything on the one we were in O.o).
We went to Delaney's Surplus Store in North Freedom, Wisconsin. They had a giant junk yard in the back and one of the strangest sculpture displays I've ever seen in my life! An artist decided to turn a lot of the scrap metal and parts into art free for display. It's titled "Beyond Bizarre."
The pictures that follow are a mixture of amazing/bizarre/creepy. You have been forewarned!
This one was by far the creepiest.
We could not for the life of us figure out what this giant sphere was originally used for.
The metal birds made out of instruments were probably my favorite. Shout out to the French horn!
I was pretty in awe when we finished walking through and admired the artist's creativity. The surplus store was definitely less interesting, though we did find a board game on street safety called The Guardians that boasted "Being street smart can be fun!" On the way back home we stopped at Culvers for some ice cream. I got the peanut butter cup flavor of the day. Yum!
This was not our typical Sunday but I enjoyed it!
