A trip down memory lane

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — Wild Bill’s Nostalgia is sure to bring back come of your favorite memories.

The Middletown store captures the heart of the past. Owner “Wild” Bill Ziegler promises you’ve never been in a place like his before.

“We do unusual things. We have a sculpture outside of three Yugos sitting on their noses,” said Ziegler. “A couple of local artists came in and said ‘We want to make something, we want to make a masterpiece out of these Yugos,’ and they did. It’s fantastic.”

Inside the building, 10,000 pieces of vinyl can be found, sure to being back some memories. “We love nostalgia and we know other people love nostalgia,” added Ziegler.

At 69, Zielger says he’s been collecting forever, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
