The afternoon we went for lunch at Chef Roy’s Frog City we also stopped at this interesting store.
It’s an old-fashioned five and dime store like Woolworth’s…except no lunch counter
When you walk inside you are immediately transported by to the 1950s with the low counters and peg boards….very nostalgic!!!! This place had everything from hairnets to hammers, lava soap to embroidery transfer patterns.
Remember when you would go into a store and buy a “lamp kit” to make a lamp out of a nice bottle you found….or drank dry? Plus all the frames to make your own lamp shade. Look at all the items to repair any lamp.
Not even Walmart or Joanne’s has this big a selection of zippers and bias tape…didn’t know anyone even used bias tape anymore….unless you sew your own clothes.
I’ve noticed Walmart is carrying less yarn all the time…not here…
And look at all those buttons and ribbons…..
I got the biggest kick out of seeing this…..hair nets…oh, my that takes me back….
I bought a few things and look what I found when I went to check out….yes, a real old-fashioned, crank cash register.
I had to take a better photo of it….
I asked the staff where in the world they find all these products from yesterday and they said they buy things from catalogs that carry everything.
Well, I’m happy to find this neat store.
Remember, you are loved.
