The Old Fashioned Variety Store In Nebraska That Will Fill You With Nostalgia
Do you remember the little locally-owned variety stores that used to grace every small town in Nebraska? If you were lucky enough to grow up in the heyday of the variety store, you’ll have fond memories of sifting through everything from home decor to hardware to clothing to food, all in one spot. There’s one little store that’s keeping that tradition alive, and it’s one of the neatest nostalgic experiences you can have in Nebraska.
