The store portion of QCM (fka ICM) has quite an unusual variety of items from ice flap caps to organic musical alligator to all types of containers. Outside, the hydroponic greenhouse and solar power control house are interesting stops.

This place is as interesting as a museum combined with a science fair combined with Future Farmer's of America. This "retired" inventor and his spouse had a retirement dream of opening a "store". What they have is a wonderful combination and new and old, novelty...More

This is a one of a kind place. I've traveled all over the U.S. and Europe, and I never came across anything like this. If you want to know more about solar power or hydroponics this is the place for you. They give classes. They...More

Interesting place and well worth the visit! When you first enter the store you are either greeted by an employee or the owner who asks if this is your first visit. Since this was our first time there, she explained the fact that the whole...More
