We Have Walmart Too!

I came across this video and just wanted to share it in case you have not had the chance to see it.  This is a great collection of photos taken at local Walmarts throughout the country.  I had to reverse and pause a few times as I could not believe some of what I was seeing.

Vintage Charlotte – Independence Blvd

Vintage Charlotte – Independence Blvd

April 5, 2011 The Night the Lights Went Out in Dallas, NC

Here you will find Thomas Avenue.  I like Thomas Avenue on a weekend night because you never know what will be going on.  There are a couple of art galleries and some shops that stay open late.  This past weekend you … Read entire article »
