I second that as the best places in America. Pablo

I notice you don't list independent bookstores, you old B & N whore.

My list would include farm stands and non-chain beauty parlors.

A good antiques store, the kind next door to an ice cream parlor.

Which itself would be another.

Is there room for a farmers' market and a used record shop (that carries a few cds too)?

Actor,
in my wee village there is a combination antique store/ice cream parlor. With old fashioned candy you don't see in the stores anymore.

Also a bookstore and 2, yes 2 hardware stores! I live in paradise.

In some places, one can still find an actual General Store. Forks of Salmon CA used to have one until it burned down. I believe there' still a General Store in Farmington, and one in San Gregorio.

Muddy, any chance that's in a little town in the Catskills?

Cuz that's the one I was thinking of.

muddy

Actor, sorry no Catskills, I am in south central Vermont. For more info you can get my email from Lance. I tried to find a contact on your page without success.

And speaking of emails, Lance! I'm still waiting on the (apparent) saga of the projector!

velvet goldmine

Yes! General stores are a must-have on the list. I'm lucky enough to live near several great ones.

Chris the cop

There's a tailor in a little shack of store right on No. Salina St. in Syracuse that's just a pleasure to patronize.

Rana

Co-ops, too. And, sometimes, yarn stores and art supplies stores.
