This is an ancient general store that is still going strong high in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. It's in a little town called Valle Crucis. What a wonderful place!!

that's so cool you have a comment, E, from someone at the general store. awesome connection! Hi, Mast Staffer!

I was going to say (before I was distracted by the previous commenter) ...that your top two photos remind me of artful assemblages in mixed media. Gets my imagination rummaging....
 
thanks for sharing these photos - and also the photos of snow - and thanks for visiting my site.

i love this place!
 
Mast Staffer, I did enjoy my visit; it was the best "retail" experience I perhaps have ever had. I wish this store, in the incarnation shown here, were closer to where I live.

M, glad you like this. That's how the whole store is, room after room of the olden days! (Today's merchandise, however: new wine in old bottles.)

Kasturi - so glad you are enjoying the photos here.
 
Hey, I live near there. Nice photos.
 
I enjoyed the photos and want to congratulate you an a wonderful job of capturing the ambiance of the store. I't a place I love and consider part of the heritage of the area and America, for that matter. Almost 27 years ago, my wife, children and I moved into the store, where we lived for 4 years, to return it to an active life. Thank you for visiting and do come again. The proprietor
