Thursday Doors: Christmas L.I.S.T. (Life In a Small Town)
Today we are celebrating Christmas Thursday Doors in my small spot of the world! The views are along Main Street, our shopping area, one short block, from one stop light to the next. There are only two stoplights in town! The shops are along just one side of the street. Across the street from the shops is the library and the “green” where concerts are held in the summer and the kids play football in the winter. I hope you enjoy the tour! Merry Christmas!
They say our town population is 11,000, but that includes a wide country/farm area too. I’d say about three thousand of us actually live within walking distance (a mile or so) of town. We do not get mail delivery. We must go to the post office and pick it up. Of course, that’s how we keep up with all the goings on!!
The Ladies’ Garden Club make the Christmas arrangements to hang all around town.
The doors can be left open today, as I took these pictures on Sunday, December 18, the temperature was 66 degrees!
Most of our restaurants have outdoor seating, although in the summer it is so hot here, it is too hot to sit outside unless it is very early or very late in the day! In the background is Davidson College.
You have to have a Bike Shop!
And the Davidson College Shop always looks cheerful! When the college is closed for breaks it is very quiet on the streets!
Now this is the “real deal” bookstore!
And we have nice banners to display lest you forget where you are!
Raefords Barber Shop is an institution in town, been here forever!
We got new signs a few years back!
Monkee’s, the ladies apparel shop.
And finally, everyone needs a Pickled Peach!
I hope you have enjoyed my spot in the world! See you in the New Year!
This is just one of many photos in the Thursday Door Collection featured by Norm2.0! Won’t you join in or take a peak at all the doors?
PS……………….The BIG NEWS!!!! I have been working on a new blog site since October! So I will introduce it on January 1st! I will no longer be posting on this site after January 1st, although it will remain up to view. I have 3 years of work on this blog, too much to let just disappear!! My new blog features my photos much better and on the computer the website fills the entire screen! I hated having all the wasted space in my background, although I loved the black, it made my photos POP! Well I was up for a change! So I hope to continue to hear from all of you in the New Year! Look for me at https://www.ThatTravelLadyInHerShoes, a slight change in name!
