TOILETS AS ART-WORTH SEEING
Whenever friends come to Murphys, I bring them by the "toilet" store. Unique toilets, to be sure. Pieces of art from the past that speak for themselves. Tom Scheller and Mike Skenfield opened this place as a mail order shop called the IDEA store (late 1960's)) and it once had a huge Clivus Multrum composting toilet on display. (Think Alcatraz). Imagine a shower that had seven or eight arms. (The shower sold and I can no longer show it off.) Its worth a trip to Murphys just to see this place with its plumbing fixtures and other amazing working gadgets from the past.
