William's Little Store

With the popularity of the show American Pickers on the History Channel comes others who want in on the business or they have been picking forever and the show has given them credibility.  We have such a picker in our area.  His name is William Williams or at least that's the name of his place called William's Little Store.  It's not really a store, but more like several piles of stuff sitting out in the elements.   I never asked him if that was his real name.  He also says he is an arts and crafts supply store which is thinking outside the box, but I guess you might call it that.


William told us he is an art teacher at the University of Wisconsin.  I assumed it was in Madison but it may be in Oshkosh.    His facebook page says he is a lot of things.  One of his websites is a little creepy, so I won't link that site.  He is friendly as can be and has a story for everything.    I don't know how long he has been in business but he joined our Princeton WI Area Buy, Sell and Give Away facebook page, and that's how we found him.  He posts new items almost everyday.  He also has his own page called https://www.facebook.com/pages/Williams-Little-Store/162994940400054  William says the Pinterest ladies love him and are his best customers.  They get all kinds of ideas from Pinterest and come to him for supplies.  He has just about anything and if he doesn't have it, he can probably find it.




 So if you are looking for something out of the ordinary, William's Little Store is the place for you.
Almost nothing is marked so you have to ask the price.  He will negotiate.  We didn't know that until we heard another customer haggling with him.  I think he enjoys that, and we could have saved some money.
