Good to see this fine structure!

Druella Ceville on September 3, 2011

I would like to go inside!


Theolfa on September 4, 2011

Hi, Tery! Thank you! I was intrigued by the merchandise outside, so I just had to explore inside ;☽

Theolfa on September 4, 2011

Marianne, it was an Aladin's cave inside, full of all kinds of things - jewelry, bags, sweaters, scarves, as well as jams, and other conserves. I wish I knew what the big wooden mushrooms were used for? Any ideas? Theolfa

Theolfa on September 4, 2011

Hi, Mike! I'm so glad you like this one, and maybe, oh wise one, you know what the mushrooms are for? Darning gigantic socks? ;D

Lovely shop Theolfa. Is this near Hitchin ?

Theolfa on September 5, 2011

Hi, Molldiddlo! Yes, you guessed it, and you would have loved it inside. Theolfa

What a lovely village store, Theolfa! I would also like to walk through that door and have a look inside! In times of huge supermarkets and shopping malls you hardly find shops like this one any more, even in the villages! I think that's a pity! Your photo is really great and I like it a lot! Cheers, Anne

I'm sure you would enjoy browsing this oldfashioned village store, Anne, I was too busy doing that, to remember to take some photographs :-☽

Enchanting Theolfa :D What a beauty! If I had a wooden mushroom (I'd like one of the smaller brown ones, please, hint hint) I'd use it as a shoe-putting-on stool. Regular chairs are too tall for comfortable shoe-tieing. Great shot!

Theolfa on September 9, 2011

Hi, Nawaitka! Thank you! And what a good idea! I don't have any laceup shes, but I do trim my toenails and A stout wooden mushroom would be ideal. Alas, they are in some remote village in UK and I am in the geaographical centre of N. America! ;D

Hello Theolfa ~~~:)

Excellent and interesting local scenery..Usually, these country stores are the font of many good things and one needs to discover the nooks and crannies within..They always seem to have a wonderful aroma ;)

Lots of fascinating details in this shot..As far as the mushrooms are concerned, I wooden know why you wood want one!


Hugs sent your way!


Theolfa on September 11, 2011

You're such a 'fun guy', Jim! You are right about the innards of country stores, and the very friendly people who staff them. I could have bought many things but there is a weight limit on my luggage.Thanks for the hugs! I now reciprocate ;☽ Theolfa

Love this one Theolfa. I have noticed a resergence in this type of village store in this area. Sadly some have gone by the wayside, but many have become local co-operatives. They are so full of unusual things that there is not mushroom left...ouch!!

Cheers, Rosa.

Thanks, Rosa! It's a little treasure trove, and it is divided ito two with a cafe in one half. I can imagine going to buy some jams, pickles etc. and then enjoying a cup of tea & some gossip with neighbours. Chuffed you added it to your favourites! (love the pun!) Hugs, Theolfa

Great find, Theolfa takes me back to when as a child I was taken to visit my grandmother. She lived in a small village with a shop just like that and it did bicycle repairs as well. L & Y*

Theolfa on September 20, 2011

Hi, Mark! Glad it brought back some happy memories. I don't remember either of my grandmothers, so I missed out on that kind of love :( I did live in a village with a Post Office, a butcher shop, and a small general store, oh, and a pub! Thank you very much for the L&Y! Cheers! Theolfa
