Quirky Places Gallery #1

Now Available For Museum & Gallery Showing.

While walking around cities and towns seeking interesting things to photograph I was amazed at how many empty stores there were. Whether those businesses were simply mismanaged or a victim of the current economic downturn, it seemed like such a waste of resources. So I decided to open my own retail businesses in those abandoned places.

Some of these businesses you may want to visit. Some you may fear to enter. That they only exist in my quirky digital world shouldn't stop you from at least inspecting the goods on this website. It took awhile to stock the shelves and put up the signs. But it was great fun.  And the rent was right.
