Many people have some fond memories of Blockbuster Video, but unless you happen to live in Bend, Oregon — home of the last remaining Blockbuster store — all you have are your memories.

But fond memories weren’t enough for a guy named Nick Collins. He misses the video rental store so much that he’s transformed his basement into one.

He built shelves and displays for his enormous collection of VHS tapes and video games. He even has movie posters and a section of candy. The room is even painted in yellow and blue.

While his basement Blockbuster is not open to the public, he has a website set up where other nostalgia-thirsty folks can virtually visit his store and even purchase his old tapes.

Check out his website:
