I love your descriptions. It was a different age, for sure. Our kids and grand kids have no idea.
I grew up in the sixties, and we had five and dime stores. Still could get penny candy. Your story is a great memory.
I enjoyed this throw back to an entirely different time of wares and themes...your descriptive piece was insightful and moving.

I remember going into "Freddy's" and buying penny candy, and holding the little brown paper bag as I walked home with my friends, then sitting on the porch enjoying my treasures!

Thank you for this story.

God bless~
A beautiful journey to the past. Thanks for sharing.
This is a lovely nostalgic look-back to earlier times when shopping was simpler and happiness was found in simple delights. You've told it very well. One 'red ink' matter: you don't need an apostrophe in 50s as in 'the 50’s'. I enjoyed your story.
Congratulations on ranking 14 overall. Happy Dance!
