A store for teachers, artists, practical jokers, kids--and adults who like to act like kids. – The Scene
In a nondescript strip mall (look for the Sherwin Williams store), American Science doesn't look like anything special, though a new paint job has brightened it up some. Most of the decor consists of random merchandise piled on shelves and in display bins and boxes. Funny signs and labels elicit frequent giggles from customers.
The emphasis is on "surplus." The inventory is a constant flow of miscellaneous science and novelty items: art supplies, binoculars, medical paraphernalia, motors, crime scene tape, test tubes, skulls and anatomical models. How about a few eyeball candles, displayed with a sign that says, "These eyes just melt for you"? More serious science stuff (depending on what you use it for, of course) includes human skulls, microscopes and telescopes. One warning: Some of the cheap, cheap items come from auctions, liquidations and close-outs, so don't assume that you're getting quality.
