The store is a two story building created by the mastermind of Larry Carter. There are hidden rooms and stairways, balconies, screened porches, hallways and at least one 'official' bedroom amidst the rooms on top of the unique store below.
The store consists of a maze of rooms and show cases all framed in genuine barn wood. There are cases built into walls, unique photos planted within the barn wood knotholes, and numerous other finds that you won't see anywhere else.The store sold to new owners as of July 2014 but it is rumored that the store will open under the same name.

Due to Larry’s passing, we are sad to announce that the store has sold to new owners.
...But any UNofficial updates about the store and about Larry's family will be posted on our Facebook page!
The store has remained a favorite photo stop among tourists.
