A place that’s been on my bucket list to check out, is a business in Houston, TX called “Electronics Parts Outlet” – located in an otherwise demure strip mall on the west side of Houston, this place is one of the premiere surplus electronics stores in the country. It also has a vibrant maker community around it. Come with me as we explore the isles and the many wonders you can find.
This is a place that’s been on my list for awhile to visit. Here’s a short walk-thru, where I run into the owner. Very nice place and very friendly people, and the place is lovingly and meticulously maintained and decorated. Well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
Location: 4027 E Kiehl Ave, Sherwood, AR 72120
While this isn’t very pinball centric, it is a rather amazing collection of vintage arcade games worth checking out in north-central Arkansas.
This was a very interesting, very special place to discover… take a look inside what appears at first glance to be a basic gas station/convenience store, but turns into not just an amazing arcade, but one of the BEST collections of pinball machines anywhere in the country. A real hidden gem.
I’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately and it’s always a pleasure to visit with old friends and see new arcades. Here I get to do both. Enjoy this walk-thru of this really cool pinball museum.
