Retirement Has Much in Store for Him

Dick Rudisill's great-grandfather ran a small general store in North Carolina. Now that he's retired, Rudisill is turning his Syracuse, N. Y., home into a small general store.

Dick calls his hobby "close to addictive." The Rudisills' home is almost completely decorated with "store items." Fortunately, Cindy's a fan of the old-time things, also.

Above the fireplace mantle, for instance, is not a peaceable landscape or an ancestor portrait, but a piece designed to steal your heart: a large metal sign for None Such mincemeat, made in Syracuse until recently by Merrell-Soule and later Borden. [Link]
