Farmers Country Store

Here is Farmer's Country Store, that is in Lancaster, Ohio. This store is just so adorable and has wonderful things to purchase for your home or for gifts.
Below is Shirley (Farmer) this store has been in her family for several generations, she has had this shop for over 30 years as a gift shop, a miniature shop (not longer does that)and she now has a quilt section at the back of the store.
Here is the check out counter which is sitting on the old meat counter from the general store. The little wooden window is an old postal window. They still use the old register today, but with the help of a calculator and paper and pencil. (That's Penny at the register now)The display items on the upper half of the shop are from Shirley's family homestead.
Some pictures of the little cubby areas in the shop.Below is the family sleigh with the velvet lining still intact.Several of the display cabinets from the original general store are still in use today.Here is a shot of the quilting area - wonderful fabrics and pattern, just love shopping in here.Couldn't resist taking a picture of the step stool - isn't it cute!I have a few more shots to share will post them on a later date.

Thank you for stopping by - Happy Easter to you ---- Roberta

Happy Easter to you Roberta!

What a wonderful shop! I love the step stool too, and the sleigh, and all the little family items on display, and the quilting section. It must be so fun to shop there.

I LOVE the houses on the street next to the shop. If I could have any kind of house I wanted one like those would be it.
