This general store revives a time when you'd "reach for a Lucky instead of a sweet.". In Short A re-creation of one of the many general stores that dotted the USA's landscape at the turn of the century. Of course, there's no longer a strong market for horsefeed and lye soap--at least not in these parts. So Patterson's Mill stuffs its shelves instead with Americana collectibles/giftables. They've got everything from jams to wind chimes made out of antique silver cutlery.
