Since offering its first batch of all edible, no-filler bird feed named Old Bob White back in 1975, Old Bob's has transformed into an eclectic shop for all things outdoors, as well as home decor and furnishings. The wide-ranging inventory includes self-manufactured cottages and storage buildings that resemble old-time cabins. Wild bird supplies, which include woodpecker feeders, entice avian near and far to swoop into customers' yards for a quick snack, filling outdoor spaces with lively chirps and dissuading the giant worm next door from digging into your yard. Not just for birds, the shop's outdoor items also include bat houses, basketball goals, and a large collection of in-stock and special order wallpapers.
Staffers at Danville Trading Post love finding creative ways to link up antique and gently used merchandise with the community: they promised, for example, to give away a vintage wedding dress to whomever it fit first, and sure enough, the gown soon found a new closet free of charge. Though the inventory constantly changes, treasure hunters can find plenty of unique and historic items for sale, from vintage Coca-Cola vending machines to TV screens.
