Rapers Variety Store, Murphy North Carolina
Traveling back roads never disappoints. This family-owned variety store sits at a well-travelled crossroads. You would never guess when you walk inside. There is merchandise unsold on the shelves from 40 years ago. There are Barbie Dolls from the 1970’s, still sitting on the little metal display stands.
This was the only interior shot possible because of the unbelievable density of merchandise stacked everywhere.
