Albert Styron's general Store in Ocracoke, NC.

It appears to have been a general store originally but now it's a mostly a place to buy T-shirts, stickers, etc.. After I had the second ASS sticker stolen from my side cases, I put the last one inside my topbox

Closed on Sundays as I found out this past weekend Good thing I didn't need gas!


Since there are some hardware/general stores mixed in here I've got another one along those same lines. Or maybe this is just a shameless plug for the GF's family and their farm. Located in Grace Chapel, NC on Ike Starnes Rd. Stop by and see why all these grocery stores and super-stores like WalMart can't beat true home grown produce! There's just no comparison in taste to what those stores call "fresh". Strawberries in the spring (which you can also bring the kids or family and pick yourself if you like), canteloupes, watermelons, cucumbers, green beans, & tomatoes in the summer, pumpkins in the fall, and the best sweet corn, I repeat...BEST SWEET CORN anywhere!

Took this picture yesterday as a buddy and I stopped in to get a late breakfast on our way to the Marlinton, WV area. They have a great restaurant in the back and they make a mean BLT



I love that place!
