A general store closed in 1952 has been untouched until recently. Here's what was inside. Remember Orange Crush? And hey! I remember watching the mixing bowl on top of the Mixmaster go round and round like magic, and the rubber smell of the thick black cord... and I'd be happy to take some of the furniture off their hands (toward the bottom of the many images, takes a while to load).

Just found your site while browsing woods lot's links, and wanted to tell you i like it very much. I'm writing and blogging from northern new england, where the trillium are just about to bloom and the leaves to erupt, and a big decision for the morning will be how to kindly dissuade the robin couple from building their nest on our porch eaves. At the same time, I've just traveled around the world through this medium. Enjoyed your post from a few days back about what blogging is and why we do it; the "ordinary life" aspect is what is precious to me, and I respectfully disagree with the author on one point: I do think each of our lives is important and meaningful. I'm looking forward to following your writing.

Orange Crush is the only soda I'd drink after having my tonsils out.

That Kessler tray...my dad has one. Sheesh. All of that stuff looks like it could have come directly from his house!

Oh man....I'm so tempted to tell my dad about all of this!

I can't believe no has asked for the story behind an untouched general store from 1952? Do you have any info?
