VIDEO: Off-Beat Stores for Holiday Shopping

Ax-Man Surplus and Vados Bait and Tackle are among the unconventional stores where Fridley residents do their holiday shopping.

At Ax-Man Surplus, you can pick up a disembodied baby doll torso, acres of electrical wire and a Bill Clinton-shaped corkscrew.

Vados Bait and Tackle offers custom-made fishing poles and live bait popular throughout the state. 

Both stores' owners say they are popular for holiday shopping.

Axman has proven to be a great place for a lot of reasons. I don't need to buy a whole spool of electronic wire if I need to fix something, found a sewing cutting board for a quarter of the cost someplace else. Mailing supplies, very cheap and all kinds for sending things out. Of course, I repair things - but Axman hoards all these things so I don't have to. : )
