If you have ever been on Leadmine Bend Rd., perhaps to go to the Ferry or Pickin-n-Grinnin, then you have passed the A.T. Cole store. I was with several friends, coming back from a soap-making class that Right By Nature was giving and the store was open, so we stopped!
There were four men sitting on the porch, just enjoying each others’ company and they were more than willing to stop and talk with us.
The store is owned by a gentleman who is a retired butcher. The guys on the porch joked that if we bought something, it would make his day. I actually bought a cotton clothesline and several others purchased soft drinks.
There were all sorts of things in his store from saddles to bologna. This is a piece of Americana, in my mind. Please enjoy the experience.
Life is an Adventure.
