A Store On The Side Of The Road

In Florida, it just seems that you never know what you'll find around the next corner.


Let me introduce you to a store on the side of the road.

This unique retail establishment is at the junction of highways 17 and 40 in Barberville, Florida.



I don't know what to call this place. I never have seen a sign with a name on it. Just this one with peanuts, free samples, peanut brittle and (Yuk!) Boiled peanuts.



Tons of amazing stuff for sale! 
We're always suckers for the Cypress furniture!


I wish I could fill my house with it!




They have the Mexican sinks that I love.....






You just wander around. I really have never seen anyone buy anything big...




But they must sell it to someone! We were here about four years ago too and I remember it as exactly the same!




I took about six pictures of the old house. All the rust and moss and shabbiness draws my eye!

I think that's one of the things I most like about Florida is how enterprising everyone is. If I lived there, I'd do something for my share of our tourist dollars too!



All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

I've never had boiled peanuts and I don't think I want to.

Wow, that looks like a really interesting place. I'd love to poke around all the lawn ornaments, I'm sure I could find something just right for my flower beds.
