Hatch, New Mexico: Sparky's Trading Post

The old Hatch Mercantile is now now filled with Teako Nunn's vintage arcade machines, games, neon signs, slot machines, and other retro eye candy. Everyone gets a small serving of ice cream. Change machine turns cash into coins for arcade play. Also: a two-headed raccoon.

2-headed raccoon.

Sparky's Trading Post

Awesome collection of antiques, including several vintage coin op machines. Many of the antiques are for sale, though not sure about the two-headed raccoon.
