Here's an excerpt from the shop's brochure:
" Herbie's Olde Shoppe opened in June 2001. The General Store atmosphere remains, only the merchandise has changed. Gone are the beans, sugar, flour and fishing lines which once filled the shelves and the storage bins. You can still lift the covers of these bins to see prices from an earlier time. It's another piece of history that adds to the ambiance. Today you will find quality products made right here in Newfoundland and Labrador as well as prints, music and books. Our 'Wall of memories' and collection of items from 'days gone by' will help you 'step back in time'.
That is so true. As you walk in the door and proceed to the counter, you walk over a large iron heating grate. All the door and wall trims are original as is the counter trim. It's a very quaint spot to shop. Tomorrow, I will share a few more photos from today's road trek.
|Here's a couple of my pendants. Note the trim below the shelf.|
