Whutnots & Doodads Secondhand Merchandise #1

This building, on Broadway in Fort Wayne, was originally a laundromat called Solar Sudser, but has been a secondhand shop since the laundry place closed. Whutnots & Doodads Secondhand Merchandise is so packed with old clothes, used electronics, and junk for sale that is it hard to walk around in there! I talked to the owner for a while and bought a book on the history of the Hatfield-McCoy Feud from her for 50 cents.

I didn't realize the laundromat had been closed until I noticed the old furniture sitting outside a few days ago after I photographed the Allen County Sweeper Company a few blocks north of here. The owner of Whutnots & Doodads said she's had the shop for 5 years!


Update: In 2016, Whutnots & Doodads closed.

Update II: The peeling Statue of Liberty mural was covered over and new mural depicting Native Americans was painted on the building in the summer of 2019.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
