If you've ever traveled along Highway 471 in Brandon, you've likely done a double-take at the family of dinosaurs and the big chicken just past Grants Ferry Road. Hundreds of cars drive by on a daily basis. At long last, I decided to stop and inquire about the giant dinosaurs and discover what other treasures might lay beyond the winding driveway.
At the back of the winding road, I discovered a shop filled with interesting and unique memorabilia, and the proprietor of the establishment, Mr. Robert. I introduced myself to Robert and asked if I could take a look around and take some photos for my blog. He graciously showed me around his shop as I oohed and ahh'd over his vast collection.
This pic is for the Alabama Crimson Tide fans that live in Rankin County.
Mr. Robert is a well-rounded collector, picker, and antiquary, and we quickly became acquainted. He has collected items from all over the country, and custom orders the giraffes, elephants, and dinosaurs. His collection includes antique furniture, glassware, stuffed animals, bird houses, etc. You name it ~ he probably has it.
I could have spent the entire day with Mr. Robert, looking at his unique collections. He invited me to come back "any time I saw the garage door open". We had such a great visit; I'll encourage you to stop by one day and take a look around, if you see the door open.
