We took a road trip to Roanoke this weekend and happened across what I’d consider the best antique shop I’ve found in Virginia. It’s called Bargain Corner Antiques, and I guess it’s technically in Disputanta, VA, on County Rd (Rt. 460) just east of the 295 interchange. This guy had at least one of everything you could ever want. I was a little hungover when we pulled in there and completely overwhelmed. I’ll be headed back real soon, when I put together a shopping list and have at least 2 or 3 hours to just wander around. Gas and oil stuff like you wouldn’t believe. The most extensive gas pump collection, including visible pumps that I’ve seen. Furniture, tools, antique machinery and lighting. Like I said – everything. Inside and outside. Run by the nicest dude ever and his prices are very reasonable which is refreshing. He’s been there for 30 years and it shows. Check it out if you’re up that way. He’s open weekends only.
We picked up a lot of blue insulators and a really cool old seed cabinet from a feed store. More on that stuff later. Here are a few pics of just some of his gas pumps.
