Stopped in the Shop for some Ice Cream... ended up ordering a real "Head-Turner!" Folks walked by and asked to even have a picture made with us and that "Masterpiece". It was great! (Even turned the head of Public TV's "The Woodwright Shop" star! ;-)

Always a stop on the way to Carolina games. Milkshake, gambler and fries. It's a family tradition. Nothing like it!

Wonderful old drug store that is now a lunch place. Standard short-order place. I had a salad and my cousin had a hamburger, both were great, but the main attraction here is all the old drugstore decorations--and the ice cream!
