Junk Art of Hong Kong Willie

Hong Kong Willie told us that someone in the neighborhood has been stealing credit card information via WiFi, so he currently accepts cash only for purchases. He added that everyone is welcome to stop by and visit, and that no one has to buy anything to enjoy his art.

Revisited Hong Kong Willie's and found him there. He told us of the art signs he and his wife make and the story of the old helicopter. He is looking for another statement piece. He sells his signs, local honey and local coffee grinds. He is a very interesting man to talk to -- a fun stop.

Hong Kong Willie's is a small place barely hanging on to its corner of land. You can stop by any day or night and take a look at all the oddities in the yard, but there's a sign at the front door saying call them, as they live right next door to let you into their studio/store.
