The Heavy Metal Museum started out as a small record store, opening it's doors in Bedford, Pennsylvania as Tunes-N-Teddies in 1995 -- half record store and half teddy bear shop . (Teddy bears were my now ex-wife's passion) . The store moved into the Antique Depot Flea Market in Duncansville, PA for a few years before going online only. I have been buying, selling, trading and collecting Heavy Metal for over 20 years.
I am Gary Shafer owner / operator of Heavy Metal Museum -- a life long fan of heavy metal music and it's culture. Metal is a lifestyle for me , I reguarly attend shows and my closet is 99.9 percent Heavy Metal clothing. ,I hope to one day open an actual museum , store and concert venue.
