Harriet's General- Culpeper, VA

         Part Two of the out and about day
 with daughter Sara brought us to Culpeper, VA.

Just love Virginia downtown areas that look like
 they are well taken care of and loved.
The hanging flower baskets are lush and full.

Even the transit system look like a pull out of a time hat
 with buses that look like trolley cars.

Doesn't appear that anything is hopping here
 at the restaurant that use to fill the hardware store.

White paint on brick that told life of another story.

This looked interesting- and we were not disappointed.

Unique and top-notch display unit
 for cards right when you walk in the door.
I got so excited when I stepped inside
 I forgot to take a photo of the  wall-mounted Airstream camper.

Candles galore.

This little shop in downtown Culpeper- has an uptown feeling.

With a down- home mentality.
They buy and sell American made goods.

At the check out is an old seed container from a hardware store.
Those bins pull out for deep storage.
 Filled with old-time games and toys for children.
Found a couple things here for my next door neighbor's children.

And behind the counter--- this amazing "barn door".
Made by a local craftsman.

And a bit of iconic nostalgia.

And a bit of pinball wizard.

Harriet's General-
for the people, by the people

See their website to find out more
 about this wonderful little shop.

As I checked out I had to get some info
 about the items in the store-
 Many of the items
 were hauled out of
 Squash a Penny Junction in Doswell, VA.

oh dear -- looks like another road trip!
