New Shop in Potsdam: The Oddball Emporium

There is a new little shop in Potsdam, called the Oddball Emporium on 17 Maple St, right near the Ace Hardware.  Yesterday was their grand opening and of course being interested in all things odd I had to check it out.  I arrived a little before noon and the owner was still setting up but allowed me to take a look around and I found this darling little toy tin phone.  I love tin toys and tea sets and basically any of that old metal stuff.

It is slightly rusty, but still in working condition and makes an adorable display piece and priced well at $20.  It is currently on one of my end tables, but I am hoping to create more display space with a project over my Christmas break!

Stop by and check it out!  They had other interesting pieces and I'm sure more to come.  It has been added to my regular shopping stops in Potsdam. I was actually approached back at the Upcycled Show about putting some of my own creations on consignment there!

If you are looking for a unique gift, I will be at the Christmas Vendor Market at the Old Phil's Florist Shop in Downtown Massena this Saturday, Dec 17th from 10 - 2!


  1. Hi Janessa! This is Derrick from Oddballs' and I just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for stopping by, and an even bigger thanks for the blog post :)

    You have a very nice site here and we hope to be in touch with you very soon. Managed to get some more inventory in the shop last night and this morning, and have had a very warm reception with many folks stopping by. Your pieces would be right at home!


    Talking about you AGAIN!!
