Visit the busiest little shop on Route 66.
This is seemingly the busiest little curios shop one could ever enter. It is owned by Harley Russell, the "hillbilly hoarder of the Mother Road." The walls, tables, and even corners of flooring are filled with many souvenirs, ranging from pieces of art, road signs, baseball caps, woodwork, t-shirts, and more. A display of guitars can even be found as early representations of famous artists. Sheb Wooley is one known artist to arise from this small town.
Sandhill Curiosity Shop is noted to make an appearance in the documentary “Almost Ghost,” which is dedicated to several almost-deserted towns along Route 66. It is also rumored to be the inspiration for Curios, a knick-knacks store owned by the character Lizzie, a 1923 Sedan, in the movie Cars.
This building is the oldest structure in Erick and is made out of old-fashioned brick. What is most unique about this shop, however, is its owner Harley Russell. Harley is a musician and performs live for each customer that sets foot in his establishment. He claims himself to be a hoarder, exemplified by his vast collection of trinkets and antiques. Harley and his late wife Annabelle are also in the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
