Necessity, the mother of invention, was raised in a garage sale on a steady diet of USB cords and mismatched socks. Harness ingenuity with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of any items at Ax-Man Surplus Stores. This Groupon is valid at any of the store's four locations in the Twin Cities: St. Paul, Fridley, St. Louis Park, and Crystal.

Ax-Man offers thousands of unusual, practical, and creative surplus items for artists, crafters, and inventors. With many items available for less than $1, power supplies, computer parts, hardware, and art materials—including a collection of porcelain and plastic body parts—are on hand to offer a myriad of project ideas and solutions. Pick out motor parts to construct a souped-up bike, or take home a 60-watt, 120vac soldering iron ($6.95) to weld a motherboard, fabric, and sequins into a TRON-inspired burlesque outfit. With ever-changing stock, Ax-Man also offers vintage tchotchkes and a surplus of odd promotional materials, including beer glasses and JFK beach towels.

Around for more than 50 years, Ax-Man is known for its helpful staff, edifying hand-labeled signs, and store decorations. Additionally, any time you buy 12 of the same item, you'll receive another one of the item for free, ensuring a baker's dozen of your new treasure.

  • If I could bring one store with me to a desert island it would be this store. – Phil J., Yelp
  • Regardless of what you go there looking for, you'll find something to buy. Every visit is different because new stock arrives weekly. – Susan M., Insider Pages
