Visitor Tips and News About Wild Bill's Nostalgia Center
This is hands down the coolest spot on RoadsideAmerica.com, in my opinion. Wild Bill is a nice guy who is more than willing to talk with his clientele. The store is easy to find and the inside has a lot of reasonably priced nostalgic items. You would all enjoy a good stop here.[Anthony B, 01/04/2015]
Wild Bill's Store is wonderful! Curated, organized, affordable fun! Vintage video games, concert posters, kitsch, collectibles, and memories. We spent a wonderful afternoon perusing the wares and left with some vintage MAD Magazines. Good times.[Pam, 07/22/2014]
