General store

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.

    I'm gonna go ahead and help myself to a fresh, tasty fave than.
  • Raphael Granas 5y

    Yeah.
  • Iain Heath 5y

    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...

    Lovely!
  • Truman Nihilist 5y

    This is awesome. Found it on the Brothers Brick.
  • Doctor Mobius 5y

    Wow. Just Wow. Every single detail is amazing. Two weeks from now I'll still be noticing new things.
  • Tristan Bowersox 5y

    Great lighting, as always...

    "Frank Moody's General Store went down in history as the most dramatic sundry in America...."
  • Heather LEGOgirl 5y

    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!
