World's Largest Things including the world's largest collection of the world's smallest versions of the world's largest things, in a mobile museum. Seen previously, but much expanded -- now on Flickr, blogspot, lomohome, and friendable on MySpace. I found it while trying to look up this ball of postage stamps.

Holy shit! Why, until this very moment, have I never heard of Hot Sam's Antiques?

Nice (re)find, jessamyn. If the person running the myspace is who I think it is, she helps out at the Grassroots Art Center in Lucas as well as runs the World's Largest Things site/show. No large things in Lucas, unless you count Dinsmoor's sculptures. Sorry for the slight derail. I'm back to looking at largest and smallest things now.

huh, am I blind? Where are the smallest versions of the biggest things? I see the biggest things fine, just not the smallest versions. And now I feel like the biggest dufus for saying that. Or is it a joke I'm not getting? *smacks forehead, hears rattling.

Loved the biggest wren. :)

Adding the world's biggest spider web found in Texas. And a miniature version of the world's biggest trilobite.
