Wow. That is kinda dirty sounding as a title. What I mean to say is 'one man's junk is another man's treasure'. Never has such an adage been true. As I keep mentioning, I have been scavenging like a squirrel in September, to find materials to add to my artwork. Bits and bobs. As mixed-media works, they are coming along swimingly, but they take a lot more time to plan and execute. Thankfully I have found a few places that have all kinds of normally useless stuff! There is one store in particular that specializes in electronic stuff and miscelanious doo-dads. Active Surplus in Toronto. I have compiled some photos that will illustrat how great the store is!

Look at these aisles packed full of junk great stuff waiting to find a use!

Just in case you can't find a distributer.....

Not sure who this is helpful for? But these babies are anatomically correct. YIKES!

If nothing else, any time you spend with a gorilla is undeniably time well wasted! If you are in Toronto, swing by Active Surplus! Check out thier selection on the website too!
