General store

Newer Older

Bygone relic of a past age, in the Bay Area, at least. Target just doesn't have the same character.

But then again, general stores don't have LEGO. Jury's out.

    Beyond the wealth of details, the composition is wonderful, with the shopkeep at the center of it all. He's been setting up since the crack of dawn, clean tie, ready for business, waiting expectantly to greet that first customer...

    "Frank Moody's General Store went down in history as the most dramatic sundry in America...."

    I have added to the faves and boy do you deserve all of them. This is so full of details I don't know where to begin to look. You shame me with your brilliance young man.

    There you have it: General Store (80) inches ahead of the Holy Hand Grenade (79) with the most favorites. Good job, everybody. Let the abuse of the favorites system continue!
