WINSTON-SALEM, NC

Some times we are so busy finding interesting BIG THINGS (like this Coffee Pot) that we forget to check out other attractions. I feel we missed out in quaint, historical Winston-Salem. It was too early for anything to be open, but it looked like it was a good place to spend a couple of hours.

Charming, vintage gas station shaped like a shell. I think I’m pretty safe assuming it was a Shell station.

HIGH POINT, NC

*WL WORLD’S LARGEST DRESSER

Oddly placed on a residential street, this piece is a big as a house! Billed as the WORLD’S LARGEST DRESSER. It apparently gets new socks on a regular basis – don’t know if they are the world’s largest, though.

Bike has seen better days, but it is BIG.

THOMASVILLE, NC

*WL WORLD’S LARGEST DUNCAN PHYFE CHAIR

Nice lyre or harp back chair. Billed as the World’s Largest Chair, but let’s be real – I’ve seen bigger. I’m willing to let it be the world’s largest Duncan Phyfe Chair, though.
6 W Main St, Thomasville, NC

LINWOOD, NC

Bill’s Truck Stop. Large prospector or hillbilly waves to motorists on the highway.

I don’t know if this is larger than life, because for the life of me I don’t know what it is! It’s affectionately referred to as Disco Chicken.

So these are along the lines of See no Evil, Hear no Evil, Speak no Evil. Right? These are in a parkette with several sculptures that (which?) incorporate the instruments of writing — typewriter keys, quill pen, stacks of books — as a tribute to a local newspaper publisher (According to Roadside America)

This is AMAZING. The silvery head is made up of 40 slices that rotate more or less randomly, and form a perfect head every hour or so. Called Metamorphosis, it is located in a technology park.
