We want to remind you of a time and place where life was a little slower and maybe a bit more enjoyable, and to suggest that much of our product selection will bring back those memories . . . memories you might want to pass on to your kids and grandkids. Some enjoy visiting a place where the customer is appreciated and served. Where they can sit on a church pew and drink their Nehi, play a game of checkers, work on a puzzle, swap stories, read a book, meet new friends, or just relax. That’s what our place is all about.
