Lester and the Wieners

Lester, my 16 year old wiener dog, is the inspiration for my collection and for my business.  Like many others, I’m addicted to collecting and will wander anywhere to find new wieners and for some curious stuff to pass on to you!

I’m proud of my logo.  As a wiener aficionado, I realize that there’s thousands of people like me who are wiener crazy.  So I wanted to share Lester’s likeness with the wiener world!  Check out our merchandise here.

I Love Wandering for Antiques!

When I was growing up in Lawrence, KS, my Mom and I went to garage sales, thrift stores, antique malls and even pawn shops in sketchy neighborhoods to find deals.  While most kids waited for summer vacation just to get out of school, I was excited knowing we’d take day trips looking for antiques!

I’ve had many collections over the years. From coins and old toy cars to Hardy Boys books and a kick-butt baseball memorabilia collection, I’ve collected it all.  I’ve found historic items belonging to the first dentist in the state of Kansas (who just happened to be related to John D. Rockefeller), to the personal childhood bible of one of Kansas’ first senators, which was personally signed years before Kansas was a state.

Now, 30+ years later, I love wandering all over Kansas City and beyond looking for the next bargain.  Of course, a little profit is nice.  But I really love the history and never knowing what I might find next.

I hope I find something for you while I wander!
