I have no clue what this retro junk store is all about, but it sure looks interesting. It’s located in an old Baskin Robbins at 4411 NW 23rd Street in Oklahoma City. Speaking of Baskin Robbins, why did they change their Daiquiri Ice cream recipe? Nothing stays the same, folks. Nothing.
I used to come to this ice cream shop back in the 1980s during my college days. I loved the pink school desk-style chairs they lined up along the windows. There was also a Baskin Robbins on Classen Drive. It closed down in the 2000s or “oughts” as they have been called. There is still a franchise up on North May Avenue where you can still get the awesome ice cream cakes.
Anyway, there is a mural on the side of this building that features giant lips, Mighty Mouse and Piggly Wiggly running off with a Baskin Robbins cone. It’s all delightfully weird and entertaining. Lots of wonderful vintage finds here. I am especially partial to the Pegasus sign. It reminds of the old Mobil Oil Filling Stations. Ding! Ding!
