The colors really jump out -- nice shot.
Perhaps a good place to stop and pick up a snack?
This looks more countrified than your usual Ocala. It's sad to see regionalism go. I'm glad they're still around.
beaucoup de couleur et surtout beaucoup de publicite ;) mais il faut bien vivre
We have lots of those here.
I just busted through my king sized sombrero that I got on a choir trip to San Antonio in my senior year of high school, (only a few years ago;)! Do you think you could pick another up for me please, Jacob? You're just the BEST!
Cute. Do they sell tacos here too?We have a Mexican store called la Guadalupe. But I always thought that was an island owned by the French!
You really do document the many faces of Florida. Good one, Jacob.
@ Allison - My dear Allison, I went to the store, told them your story, and when the owner stopped laughing, he said, wiping tears from his eyes, "Madre de Dios! When Allison was a senior in high school? Senor, that was sooooo long ago!!! I theenk I was in her class, but too many years have flown, I cannot remember."Ah, senor, por favor, tell Ms. Allison they haven't made king-sized sombreros for 40-50 years! I could get her a nice serape, though. How 'bout a taco?"Well, dear Allison, obviously I was getting nowhere, so I bade him farewell with a hearty "Adios!" and a "Hasta la vista!"I don't think he heard me, though, as he was rolling on the floor laughing, saying over and over again, "Madre de dios! When Allison was in high school? Madre de Dios!"
Beautiful and fantastic shot !!! Great post !!
Only mild peppers for me, Jacob. And light on the tequila, too.
He can set up shop here and no one would ever know he's not Filipino. ;)
Allison, Jocob is juss funnin with you. A floridian habit---I know you were in High school only last week. Jacob--rilly!!! MB
This looks like an interesting stop. Is it in the country or close in to the city? I wanted to ask if you knew the price of the place in your post from yesterday?
I would have thought this to be in .. New Mexico!!
What a wonderful capture of colors and contrasts. The all in one store...there are a few of those here, too.
Looks like there's quite a variety of items that can be purchased there.
A little bit of everything going on there! Nice find.
Re: comment on day4plus: My thought exactly!!! MB
What DON'T they sell? I mean, even Western Union, amazing!
@ Ciel - Many of the patrons of this place are immigrants (legal and illegal) from places like Mexico and Western Union is critical for they wire money home on a regular basis...
Are the owners two cousins?
A Mexican store! What's in it for me?
Thanks for the info on the house prices, Jacob. Check out my post tomorrow to see why I was wondering.
That's what I call 'one stop shopping'.
I wouldn't mind trying a spicy dish. And since I can't paddle anyhow I might hang around here for dessert as well.
Los Primos! Me encanta el nombre, olé! LOL! I like the name of the shop! :-)
I like shots like this, though I never seem to take them. Years from now they will hold so much interest for people. It is like capturing a moment in time.
