Show and tell

Every Friday, Kelli over at ~ There's no Place Like Home ~ hosts " Show and Tell ".
I want to tell you about the ol'e time hardware store that's in our neighborhood. Daniel's has been around for over 50 years and entering the store is like stepping back in time. The two cashiers at the front counter have to be close to seventy. Just tell them what you need and they will let you know if it's there.

There are long narrow aisles with shelves that reach all the way to the ceiling, jam packed with every hardware item imaginable...some that you will never find at the national chain stores.

A pot of coffee is always brewing and fresh popcorn from the machine just inside the doors is only 10 cents a bag!

Previous to being a hardware store, Daniel's was an ice cream store and a post office. I love to see a hometown business that is still thriving after all these years.

It sounds like a wonderful place to visit. I wish there were more places like this!

This reminds me of my childhood growing up in a small town! I too love to see family or smallelocal businesses survive the chains!

That is so neat! It is so hard to find town "treasures" like that anymore. :)
