[This five-part series profiles local dealers of used goods, in all their rich variety. Others in the series: North Shore Architectural Antiques, Sellers Auction, Retro Antiques and Art in the Alley.]
Judy Okstad stands at the counter of Central Sales, welcoming customers into a three-floor-deep ocean of stuff. Seriously… a lot of stuff.
“There’s a lot to remember where things are,” Okstad says. “When people aren’t in here I do walk around and I look and try to memorize.”
The “handyman’s candy land,” as owner Joel Russell calls it, sells just about everything: tools, boots and shoes, motors, greeting cards, ribbons. The variety is overwhelming. Downstairs: auto exhaust pipes. Upstairs: porcelain figurines.
Col. Brent Loberg stands at the front of a huge warehouse-like room, auctioning off bottles of barbecue sauce, jars of olives and boxes of candy.
“Who else wants a Sweet Tart Squeeze here?” Loberg calls in a booming auctioneer voice. “Whoa, that’ll make you pucker up there.”
Col. Brent Loberg accepts items for the upcoming Sellers Auction.
In a drafty old 1930s movie theater, environmental consultant John McCarthy sells antique building elements on his days off.
McCarthy, a geologist, opened North Shore Architectural Antiques in Two Harbors nearly 10 years ago. His inventory includes windows, doors, light fixtures, tiles, ceiling tins and other items.

Rolf’s Chicken Photo Shoot — another reason why I love this town.
This little guy came from a hoarding situation in September. All the dogs have found new homes and he’s the last one! He’s being fostered in Duluth through the Range Regional Animal Rescue. He’s learned how to be a pet and is ready for his forever home.You can see his PetFinder page for more info.
The shelter named him ‘Kelsey’ and we’ve changed it to ‘Dasher’! You’ll understand why when you see him outside!
Because of Dasher’s background, he cannot go to a house with small animals. He is a younger dog and needs a yard to run around in.
Here it is, the annual gallery of local goods, submitted for your holiday shopping approval. If you’re going to get all material this Christmas, it might as well be local material, right?
In most cases you can acquire these items in retail stores or shop online. Click on the images for more information and links.
We know there are more ways to spread the holiday cheer, so add to the list of ideas through the comments to this post. And if you can’t get enough of this stuff, check out the PDD Gift Guide 2010 and PDD Gift Guide 2009. Most of those items are still around.
My husband and I are fostering a dog through the Range Regional Animal Rescue. Kodiak is around 3 years old and was seized with 37 other huskies from the range. We have gotten him healthy and house-broken and he’s ready for adoption. You can find him on this PetFinder page, through the shelter or contact me here for info.
I have three tickets for sale to the Blitzen Trapper/Dawes co-headlining show at First Avenue this Friday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. The Belle Brigade opens. After fees and taxes, they came to $30 each. I’m in Duluth, so we can meet up to do an exchange. Email joxley1 at gmail dot com if you are interested. Just FYI – the show is sold out.
Duluth artist Emily Kuznia has another one of her quirky/cool designs in the Woot Shirt Derby for Oct. 20. That means you can order one of these puppies anytime today and they are only 10 bucks. If enough people order … here’s where I get foggy … Emily will win some kind of awesome prize or accolades. So Nettleton-Central-Hillsiders-Duluthians and anyone else who may have some tie to Emily please take a look and get yourself a shirt. Oh and if you don’t have a tie why not just do it to give a cool young artist a leg up?
Christmas is just around the corner and these will make great stocking stuffers for just ten bucks (free shipping).
Survival of the Funnest is another one of Emily’s Woot Shirt designs that I blogged about last December.
Here’s another one, she’s on a roll, I guess. “I’m here to the Rescue .. uh … Never Trust a Princess”
