Inside a general store: As the Christmas shopping season begins, it seems to me that there's something peaceful about this store. Of course, choices were severely limited . . . What do you think? Peace or scarcity?

Christmas shopping would have been a lot easier....maybe a bolt of fabric for the sewers in the family....a pocket knife for Johnny....if you were lucky there might be a little doll for Susie......shopping done....LOL

This would have seemed like abundance compared to what most people had in their homes at that time.

It would have been nice not to have huge, crowded malls and crowds. Handmade gifts are great!

As a child, walking into a general store was wonderful.

as a kid in the 1950's the family traveled across country every summer and I remember many, many little towns along the way still had stores like this … and a big ice chest out front, filled with soda
