The Victorian Sci Fi paraphernalia in the windows of this enigmatic Main Street storefront is a puzzlement to many passersby. That, and the fact that it never seems to be open. Actually, this exotic movie prop shop is generally open on weekends between 12 and 4 pm, and a $1 donation is required.

If you’re smart, you’ll cough up. If you’re lucky, you’ll be regaled by quixotic owner Parke Meek (or someone equally informative) who will fill your head with tales of wonder.

You ask me, that’s a buck well spent. Blucher!

    They have a photo in the window of that same corner in 1927. You can see that the building that houses Jadis is one of the few buildings on the street that was there, looking pretty much the same, all the way back then.
