What an amazing place. So many fun things to look at - a collection of chairs hanging from a staircase, wig heads with masks, planting’s in unlikely recepticles, a turtle sporting Mardigras beads. Every member of our group saw something different.

My friend took me to see Randyland and I must say "it was over the top" with junk. I seriously don't think he would make a great deal of money selling his items. Although I did see a colorful abacus!

This place is definitely worth a visit. It's wacky and tacky and fabulous! Randy is a total character and he has created an amazing space that really is like a fantasyland. Everyone feels welcome in Randyland. A quirky, fun place to visit.

There's almost no way to describe this place. Funky comes to mind but it's definitely worth a visit.
