A floppy hat. A handful of postcards just for fun. Maybe the best hot dog you've ever had. And a cup of coffee. Nothing really beats a good general store, especially when you stumble on them while on a road trip. But look around. Is there a little shop you've been meaning to go into that's just around the corner from your house? Well, today is the day because it is National Mom & Pop Business Owners Day.
The image above is of the Broome Street General Store in Silver Lake, Los Angeles. A friend and old co-worker of mine opened it and named it after a street we once worked on. I'll take those bags! And a latte. Oh, and what are those cute shirts?
