I always allow plenty of time when I go here. There is so much to see. The staff is really helpful. It is just plain fun to spend time in this store. I always bring my family here when they visit. The prices are awesome. Everything here is so inexpensive, you can buy lots.

PROS: They have everything
CONS:

Funky! Don't go to this store unless you aren't really looking for anything and have a whole lot of time to do it. It is piled high with all sorts of odds and ends (mostly related to science, but not always). There are gadgets, and widgets, and do-dads, and what-cah-ma-callits galore. I heard of someone that built their own computer with parts from here. Or you could fill a vintage mail carrier bag with rubber bugs and prisms. You should go at least once to check it out.

This store is very different from other stores in a sense that it has a special feeling...it feels like you're at a garage sale, a science fair, and walmart -- all at once. This store has interesting items inside, most of them relate to science in some way. The prices aren't especially great, but aren't bad either. Even if you're not interested -- I suggest you stop in and walk through at least once.

PROS: interesting products
CONS: somewhat disorganized

Okay, this is just a cool store.
Recommended to me by a friend the other year and I just thought it was cool beanz.

Oodles of gidgets and gadgets. Beekers, tubes, science kits, small motors, misc parts for making motors and tinkering projects.

I took my Dad in here on one of his visits to Milwaukee and he went three times. *smiles* And spent hours in here looking at all the odd, wierd, different, and ultimately cool stuff.

This is a store for browsing, if you go in looking for something specific, it could be very frustrating. This is a liquidator warehouse full of all kinds of wacky things: science supplies, toys, mechanic and electrical parts, and just random junk. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon, cheap prices on really weird stuff. Quirky staff is very friendly but definitely a little weird... you have to be to dig on all this stuff. It's definitely worth a visit if you're looking for an epoxy encased scorpion, a venus flytrap, out of season holiday decorations, or a life size plastic mold of a female torso. Parking is ample

PROS: weird stuff, good prices
CONS: disorganized by the nature of the beast

In Short
Back in 1937, a small ad in Popular Science magazine offered "Ten lenses for 50 cents." The lenses, discarded rejects from a Chicago factory, sold like hotcakes. The company has since grown into three store locations,…
