Charlie and I were out froggin’ around (as they say in Corning, New York, where Mom lived and worked for 15 years). While froggin’, we stopped in at Young’s Country Market, a relatively new business in town. Young’s moved into the old Alstott’s Hardware building, which I posted about before, and which closed when Mr. Alstott passed.
The building is under remodeling, inside and out. Here’s a little eye candy for my remodeling friends.
First, a gallery of outside shots:
We went inside (of course!), and Mrs. Young gave us a tour. Downstairs, where the removal of pegboard and plywood revealed windows, brick, and architectural bits.
She took us upstairs, which I didn’t even know was there. More brick, more windows, and a pressed tin ceiling.
I leave you with this sign, which comes under the heading of “cracker-barrel philosophy,” but which I love.
