This afternoon I got the book Country Stores in North Carolina to read and look through, and I'm thrilled! It's a new acquisition at the library, and it's one of those books that makes me wonder why I didn't come up with the idea! At quick glace, the book is full of black and white pictures of country stores throughout North Carolina, with a short caption to describe where each store is located. Occasional blurbs about country store experiences pepper the book, which is a nice touch. Some of the photographs are close-ups of vending machines, store signs, thermometers. If you're a fan of the North Carolina countryside, check out this book!
