    After spending time in the Virgin Islands, Tracy Dodd took the advice of his father (a fellow auction-goer & picker) and bought a piece of land on the outskirts of Montrose, Colorado. The spot quickly became filled with everything from vintage automobiles to bizarre trinkets of every kind.

    Sitting along a frontage road to US 550, the Million Dollar Highway, Tracy’s Vintage Unusual Fun Stuff is the last quirky little stop before the scenery (and roadway) begins to dramatically change. While the tourists flock to the Russell Stover factory and outlet in nearby Montrose, CO, the real road tripper and adventurer prefers the quirkiness of Tracy’s Vintage Unusual Fun Stuff any day over a box of corporate chocolate.

      Tracy, just saw your hangout on Facebook looks great, as usual you look like things are
      doing good. I’m living in Fla. left St. T. In 1999, been back a few times glad we left when
