Unique & difficult to find antiques, vintage, discontinued quality items. consumable & replacement parts for equipment & machines you already own. Why Hobo Valley? It's where I live and the farm where I grew up. It has been Hobo Valley since the depression when hobos would hop the train running through the farm & camp near the artesian well that provided fresh water 365 days a year. Hobo? Unlike a bum or a tramp I'm willing to work, but mostly for a short duration, my main impetus is the love of the journey more than the destination. Emporium? A shop that offers a wide variety of goods I find and offer items that I think are neat and of the highest quality but we can't use because it is not my size or don't have a use for it. Hopefully you will think so to but have a need for it. This is my way of "ultimate" recycling. Better than taking an aluminum can and melting it down to reuse the metal. This saves time, energy and resources! Thanks for reducing your carbon footprint!
