Shopping at the TG store. One pinner said, "My granddad would call it the Toys, Guns & YoYo's store!" LOL
TG was a dime store that in its heyday was a precursor to the big discount stores we see today. And I worked at one of these stores too :)
With the philosophy of "have what people want at a price they can afford to pay," the T.G.& Y. corporation opened its first variety store in Norman, Oklahoma in 1936 and expanded to 930 outlets nationwide by the 1980s. TG stores were firmly embedded in southern culture as modern-day general stores with a bit of everything, and often called by the moniker, "Toys, Guns, and YoYos."

TG&Y dime store. Memphis, TN. Went there many times as a child. Sad it's been gone so long.
Favorite place to shop with my mama and mammaw back in the day.

Dollar Stores, Childhood Memories, Dime Stores, Cent Stores, Ten Store, Dimestores Woolworths
Dimestores: Woolworth's; Kreskie's...oh, so many different ones. Thanks to inflation, we now call them dollar stores!
Woolworth's 5 Dime Store--sold everything under the sun...imagine the concept...sort of like the Dollar Store, right? Only the quality was much better. Much better
five & dime store. Oh how as a kid the selection of toys was overwhelming for a nickel or dime...you were in heaven! Now my grandson feels the same way about dollar stores.
Woolworth's 5 & Dime Store--sold everything under the sun...imagine the concept...sort of like the Dollar Store, right? Only the quality was much better. Much better. I spent many days looking at all the items and bought coloring books and crayons and paper dolls with my 10 cents. It was such fun. B.

Dime Store - Love the wood floors and the shopping baskets---brings back memories! The dime stores I remember always smelled good, too!
Vintage Woolworths, Childhood Memories, Dime Stores, Franklin Store, Wooden Floors, Wood Floors, Cent Stores
Dime Store - Glad I grew up in the days of "The Dime Store". Wood floors, items in those glass dividers, all those little doo-dads and cheap rings in that glass top case. Loved allowance day and heading to off to "Caudell's Variety Store"
Dime Store - Love the wood floors and the shopping baskets---brings back memories! The dime stores I remember always smelled good, too! Tucker's 5 & 10 was awesome but I loved the ones with creaking wooden floors too
Dime Store - Love the wood floors and the shopping baskets---brings back memories! I loved the Ben Franklin store in our neighborhood, where we'd buy paper dolls and penny candy and where, for $5, I could buy Christmas presents for my parents and siblings.
Dime Store - Love the wood floors and the shopping baskets---brings back memories of the local one around here, and of the ones I still see once in awhile up north.
The Five & Ten stores like Ben Franklin stores in N.H. They were so much fun with lots of bins full of lots if different things. Old wood floors made the aisles and it was a hoot to go up one aisle and down another just to see what was there.
Dime Store - Love the wood floors and the shopping baskets---brings back memories! The dime stores I remember always smelled good, too! Woolworths with lunch counter.

Love the Campfire Girls logo. I still remember the predecessors song: "Blue Birds Blue birds, coming from far and near, we're together striving to bring good cheer, we work hard to please our mothers and always help our brothers, we work and play, we're always gay, we'll be Campfire girls someday, hey hey"
Yes I was indeed...blue bird and a camp fire girl. My mom was the leader and my grandma had been her leader. camp fire has lost steam in AZ so my daughter is a girl scout.
I was a Camp Fire Girls, not a Girl Scout. We sold boxes of candy and chocolate pecan turtles instead of cookies.
Is Camp Fire Girls still around?? Camp Fire Girls Logo - I was a Camp Fire Girl starting with Blue Birds in Kindergarten. I went all the way thru to high school and Asst. Leader. It was an amazing time.
I was a Bluebird and then a Camp Fire Girl, not a Girl Scout. We sold boxes of candy (for 50 cents a box!!) instead of cookies and I sold a LOT! ;-)

Camp Fire Girls - forget the Girl Scouts! I always wanted to be a Camp Fire Girl!

Pony ride...while your mom shopped at the grocery store
Ride Treat, Begged Mom, Childhood Memories, Dad Shopped, Mom Shopped
Pony ride...treat after grocery shopping (Or sometimes outside Toys-R-Us or Wal-Mart...Nammy was awesome like that!)
Every time we went to the city, I begged Mom for a chance to ride one of the horses that were common outside of many stores ... just a nickel to ride!!
Pony ride...treat after grocery shopping My boys like to ride the penny pony now like I did 40 years ago---the sames ones are still at the store!
Pony ride...while your mom shopped at the grocery store. I was horse crazy as a girl and used to love riding these coin-operated horses outside the store. I would imagine I was riding a real horse. I don't think children today could enjoy these 'simple pleasures' that we had back then.

Childhood Memories, Ole Days, 90 S Kid, Plastic Bubble, Memory Lane, 80 S
Another dangerous toy from the 70's we survived! haha. Plastic Bubbles - I loved the smell of this stuff but the fumes were a killer and I'd get dizzy if I played around with it too much! It's no wonder since we we were breathing in polyvinyl acetate and acetone.
Plastic Balloons...Put a little pasty goop at the end of the straw, blow gently ... and presto, a dry plastic bubble. They could last for a couple of days before they shriveled into a crumpled ball of celophane looking stuff.

We loved our trips to the corner store! Running a store ran in both sides of my family. My maternal grandparents (Mamaw and Papaw) owned a little grocery store at one time. My paternal great-grandparents also had a grocery store out in the middle of nowhere. Every country store had wooden floors that creaked and screen doors that would bang as you would come and go.
So awesome - old screen door | CHECK OUT MORE PORCH AND SCREEN DOOR IDEAS AT DECOPINS.COM | #porch #porches #screendoor #screendoors #outside #exterior #homedecor #porching
Corner markets with screen doors - there was one like this at the corner store by my grandma's I lived in the country general store and had a screen door like this one.
Corner markets with screen doors - there was one like this at the corner store by my grandma's Deli corner store with the always required screen door that was constantly slamming
Corner grocery stores... When you would walk in you would hear a fan running and the screen door shut then the sound of the store keepper shuffling over to you!
