Postcards and t-shirts, and bears! Oh my!

I’m pretty sure that I know what you’re thinking: oh no, not another tourist trap!  Sure, Harper’s Old Country Store gets a lot of business because of the close proximity of Seneca Rocks, and, yes, they sell Seneca Rocks t-shirts, caps, refrigerator magnets, etc., but the store does have a lot of unique items and memoribilia.

This big fella here has bee stuffed since 1983.  It seems that he had a bit of a sweet tooth for the local sheep.  Not every country store has a stuffed bear on the sales floor, and fewer still have skunk pelts for sale.  Different is good!

Skunk Pelts!

At the end of the day, though, all of that climbing made us hungry.  Fortunately, the upstairs portion of the store doubles as the Front Porch Restaurant.  We had an appetizer made up of cheese sticks and deep fried cauliflower and zucchini.  The main dish was a lamb sandwich with chips.  Move over Road Kill Cafe, Polly just found another small town restaurant that has plenty to please the palate!

Good Eats!

  1. That looks like Fred Drucker’s store in Hooterville!

  2. Do they sell cheese?

  3. I felt like we went back in time when we walked through the door…I loved it! What a great day!

  4. Dear Anonymous,

    It was SAM Drucker’s store in Hooterville. There was a Fred on Green Acres–Fred Ziffel, who happened to be Arnold the pig’s dad. That had to be the greatest sitcom in TV history!!!
