2nd Hand Shop
A long-abandoned store has a giant green hand painted across its front. Its crude cartoon fingers reached out and shook us until we added it to Roadside America. True story. Roadsideamerica.com Report... [10/27/2013]

I passed by this location and a sign in front says that it has been sold. Does anyone know if it can be saved? I am going to call the township and find out if they know what is the plan for this gorgeous old building -- which should be a museum.

Herman's 2nd Hand Shop was open for years. The Hermans are a local family and the store was like an estate sale gone nuclear. It was always cool to walk through the narrow passages, and the owner was a character. It was cleaned out and presumably sold within the last year. I grew up seeing the store and I hope the new owner won't just bulldoze it down. Like "Tillie" [iconic grinning face of the Jersey Shore], it is part of New Jersey old-times.

Really a good find. Kind of creepy that the building has curtains and furnishings in it ... Even though it has probably not been touched in 20-30 years.
