Thank you to the art collector in Burlington, Connecticut that purchased this framed pint.

Fantastic capture and love the title!! L/F

Congrats on your sale Benanne.

Thank you to the person from Burlington, NC that purchased this print and a pack of greeting cards.

I wonder why it's not exhibited in the *Crystal Bridges art museum in Bentonville? *It's owned by one of the Walmart siblings! ;-) Seriously though it is a great nostalgic shot & I would be pleased to display it.

I love this place! I spent every Sunday afternoon here buying drinks and candy from Mr. Coot that owned it. It's still open and I still go there, proudly.

Hi Joanna, I bet you know some of my family members if you grew up near Bayne's Store. My mother was a Miles and my great grandparents had a tobacco farm just down the road on 119. My great uncle also had a tobacco farm on Bayne's Store Road.

Congratulations great work..

Congrats on your sale! L

This still exists. It don't in cities, but in small towns on back roads all over central California I see General stores a lot. Ther are a slice of classic Americn heritage.
