My parents introduced me to a place in Lufkin, TX called Paul Nerren's Junk Barn - on Hwy 59 between Lufkin and Nacogdoches (home to Stephen F. Austin U.) It's about 1.5 hours from Beaumont, but it would be worth the drive.  This place has just about everything and it's huge.  Every corner I turned I thought would be the end but the stuff kept going and going.  It is quite literally a junk yard but I was in heaven.  The man that works there (who I assumed was Paul Nerren) was kind of scary but I didn't let that get between me and the acres of treasures.  Street signs, license plates, doors, old tools, etc.  I could go on and on.  I plan to go back in my husband's truck - my little Mustang doesn't hold much.

Anyway, if anyone is in SE TX you may want to take a road trip.  If you make it out there stop and have lunch in Lufkin at a little place called Joe's Italian restaurant.  He's from Italy and the food is awesome and authentic.

I love junk yards. When we go to the beach for the weekend we like to stop in High island at KAHLA'S FRESH JUNK. They have everything. We to the Tram road Flea Market some too.In Beaumont.  I've always wanted to go to the Canton Flea Market. Maybe this spring.

another place to go - if your into junk shopping is....damn I think its Tram road. If your heading out of bmt towards lumberton its on the left just before you leave the bmt area ( i think).

I havent been back home for a few years. I still dont miss it though.

Oh, and you could always go check out the Art Studio for tons of amzing classes....diversify your craftiness.
