Clarke's Collectibles Lunchbox Museum

We just opened the museum on September 24, 2009 -- almost 700 lunchboxes collected over 25 years, housed in an old firehouse. Not only do we display lunchboxes, but we have a Laughing Sally, mechanical figures in the back, and 200 ponytail items on display. It is a wacky place, with a bed pan exhibit in the bathroom with a library in it.

All the merchandise for sale is set up like a museum. Everyone that comes loves it and won't leave.
