Pickles Gap Troll

Yes, Pickles Gap is a real place. Located just outside of Conway, Arkansas, the Pickles Gap name comes from the legend of a German immigrant who was crossing the creek which runs alongside the shopping village when he accidentally overturned his wagon which was full of wooden barrels containing pickles. All of the barrels split apart on the rocks in the streambed. Pickles were found downstream for weeks afterwards and the creek smelled of pickle juice for longer than that.

Along with a motorcycle shop, a church and a few houses, there is a little outdoor shopping village with several interesting antique shops, a candy store which also sells jams and sauces, a cafĂ© that is open on weekends, a gun & knife shop and a print shop. Farm animals roam the grounds and you can buy feed for little trolls like Friar Tuck to feed the animals!

Hot Troll

Warning! In the summer time, the hot, hot summer time, temperatures in cars parked in the sun can be 140+ degrees! This can be devastating to Trolls who find themselves forgotten and locked inside. Don't let this happen to your Troll!

This sad picture was recently taken in a Walmart parking lot when the temperature was over 90 degrees. The doors were locked and the windows rolled up. This poor, unfortunate disabled troll was no doubt doomed. Oh, the horror! The horror!

Please, don't let this happen to your Troll!
