Bones and caskets and eyeballs - Oh My!

Records and rotary phones, Texas literature and tea cups, porcelain signs and post cards - you can spend hours at a time visiting yesteryear at D and J's.
D and J's - What is it?
It’s both - with just a touch of haunted house added in - that is, if you don’t care to enter a vault of coffins surrounded by antique dental and medical equipment.
D and J’s Good Ole Days in Brady bills itself as simply an ‘antique, oddities and vintage’ store, but the customers that have visited from all 50 states and more than 50 countries say it’s much more. A pile of guest registry books kept at the front of the store for the past five years, containing hundreds of pages, reveal the true eclectic gem that is reeling in travelers, tourists, and collectors by the droves to Brady.
“The best collection of antiques we’ve seen. So fun!”
“Unbelievable!! Incredible history - Wonderful fun - Thank you.”
“Love your stores - displays are awesome!”
“Amazing stores - great finds!”
“On the way to Save the Alamo rally - had to stop - favorite of mine.”
“A fantastic array of memorabilia.”
Joe and DeAnn Evridge, the store’s mom-and-pop owners say the 20,000 square feet collection of thousands of items is really a visual representation of their love story.
“We’ve been married thirty years in May,” says DeAnn, “our hobby turned into a dream to open a store, then that store led to another store.”
“And now another store,” laughs Joe as he chimes in. “It’s just a great love story - me and my sweet wife - we love the stories the pieces tell and we love all these pieces because they tell our story.”
