The big man for Big Daddy's Flea Market still stands
tall holding up the sign for the business. Even Big Daddy couldn't hide
while dusk set, near Las Cruces, NM.

The Farmington Man looks like he's been spruced up a bit, with a new
shiny paint job and belt. He's now empty handed.
UPDATE 12/04 : The Western Tire store, or as
the locals call it, the store with big man on top is closing this year
or the beginning of next year in 2005. The business has served here for
49 years in Farmington, NM. It is sad to see it go. The rumor is that
the man will be sold on eBay. Many thanks to Bill K. for update. 12-04

Here's a shot of the Farmington Man, now called Sonny the Big
Man, taken taken Wed, April 20th. The Farmington Ambassadors
(Farmington Chamber of Commerce) cut a welcoming ribbon as a crew helped
Sonny to his feet. To everyone’s amusement, his new friends at Sun
Glass had sprung for a new blue work shirt so he’d match all his
coworkers. Currently Sonny is still empty-handed, but I am pretty
sure that’s going to change.
If you would like to know more about Sonny, contact Sun Glass at 505-327-9677.
