FASHION

Fifty pound bags of flour and potatoes are hoisted over his shoulder and thrown in the back of the horse-drawn buggy. Going to the General Store once a month was quite the deal. Smell those fresh coffee beans as the aroma wafts across the room toward the yards and yards of fabric for Ma to make a brand new dress. Large jars of candy are seen with the hopes that the shopkeeper will let you put your hand in and draw out a sweet delicacy. Large cans of lard are atop the racks of canned oats and fruit. Hams and sausages hang high from a pole next to large cans of sweet, tasty syrup. All of this can be found in our "General Store" exhibit.
