LITHIUM, MO (KFVS)- You can call Dave Jenkins a modern day treasure hunter, a junk collector, even a hoarder. He doesn't care.
For the last 20 years or so he's been doing what he loves: collecting and displaying anything that catches his eye.
"I collect everything," claimed the man from Lithium, Missouri.
Dave's yard caught our attention not long ago as we drove through Lithium looking for a subject for "Everybody in the Heartland has a Story." Displayed on his half-acre lot you'll find statues of all shapes and sizes, old creamers, wire, a 1964 Ford Fairlane, flags, wagon wheels, seven grills and sheds stuffed to the gills with more stuff.
"It's what I like to do," the 60-year-old said.
Originally from Puxico, Dave moved to Lithium 20 years ago, about the time he retired from the state highway department.
