Barber Jon's World Famous Barber Shop isn't just a place to get a fresh cut - it's a place for the odd and the curious.

"I had beautiful, beautiful stuff," Barber Jon told FOX40.

The shop's Museum of Oddities and Curiosities was hit by burglars, busting through the glass door at the roadside attraction Wednesday.

The register was raided and all six barber stations were ransacked.

But what hurts Jon the most is the missing sports memorabilia and a series of straight-edge razors dating back to the 1700s - gone.

"Nothing else means anything. That's what that collection meant to me," he said. "And that's why I shared it, I shared it so people could come in and see."

Jon says the burglary robbed customers of the Barber Jon's experience.

Meanwhile, the shop has been contacted by other shops across the country, asking how they can help replace the stolen equipment.
