Urban Ore ZOMG
Oh, man, why didn’t I go to Urban Ore sooner? There’s a surplus store in the Twin Cities called Ax-Man, and Urban Ore looks like its Bay Area counterpart. We ran a story on it back in 2004, but it didn’t have photos–which are, as usual, after the jump.
From out front. It’s a big place.
An old Motorola record player . . .
. . . and one of its ascendants, an even older Edison cylinder shaver. This is how you’d erase a wax cylinder.
All toofs at Urban Ore cost three dollars per jaw.
Here are some examples of such toofs.
And here’s their women’s collection. Evidently their women collect doors, and put them in shipping containers. Hm.
And finally: cats! There are a few others, but this was the only decent picture of them I got.
