Country stores like this dotted our landscapes in mass a few decades ago... now there only seem to be a few left. This general store is located in the small community of Valle Crucis, North Carolina, in the Blue Ridge mountains. It is the annex store to the original Mast General store just down the road a piece which was built in the late 1800's. My kids love this annex store because they have every kind of nostalgic candy you can think of displayed in barrels... you pay by the pound! Does anyone remember "BB Bats"?... how about those wax harmonicas?... yep... they have 'em!
