Nostalgic Puzzles: General Stores

The other day I was talking with my mother and grandparents about the home of my great-grandparents, a small house in the woods built with my great-grandfather’s own hands. My mom talked about going to visit them and how she loved to visit the general store nearby. She’d walk there, pick out candy, and the counterwoman would write down their tab on a small sheet of paper (10 cents per candy) and my great-grandmother would pay it all at the end of the month.

This inspired me to gather up our puzzles of the general store theme. Sometimes they’re sorted under Americana, sometimes under Fall puzzles, sometimes under specific holidays. The presence of old time-y general stores brings about that nostalgic sense of simpler times or small towns. Enjoy!

    I love the general store puzzles! have a bunch myself though dont’ think I have these particular ones except maybe the last one! your story about the house in th woods reminds me of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House In the Big Woods – one of my favorite books in that series – always made me want a cabin in the woods!
