Store Sells Weirdest Stuff

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A store in Kansas City, Missouri, specializes in slanging truly weird stuff.

From bizarre props used in Aerosmith videos, America’s Most Wanted clips, and Budweiser commercials, Weird Stuff Antiques has it all.

Crazy items for sale include an eight-foot-tall tennis racquet, a 10-foot carrot, and a taxidermied ram’s head.

Then there’s vintage hair dryer chairs, coin-op vending machines, an oversized ladle, and an actual street stoplight for sale.

According to store owner Terry Sanchez, even the building that holds his merchandise is weird.

Back in the 1970s, it was a huge vegetarian restaurant owned by a church.

Today, the space accommodates all of his off-the-wall items and still boasts a huge banquet hall on the second floor.

The kookiness doesn’t end there.

To advertise his goods, Sanchez drives around town in a 1966 Cadillac covered in red fur, and says it’s just like mobile billboard.
