On the surface it may look like an ordinary small town hardware store. But take one step inside and you'll see it's anything but ordinary. As Debbie Williams found out that's due in large part to Johnny Jones, hardware man extrordinaire, and you'll find him out along County Road 12.
"Did you see that? A marble in a piece of wood. My Daddy's uncle did that. I got a kidney stone over here. 'Who's?' mine." It's hard to imagine any place more unique. "some of it's old, some of it's unique. Sentimental a lot of it." Somewhere between the plumbing supplies and the hand tools, "I call this my little museum right here" a plethora of stuff. "I've got a guitar up there that belonged to my mother. I went through a lot to get them things. My Dad brought this right here back I call it desert rose and I call this rice krispie nugget. Lightening struck the mud here lightening struck the sand there and crystallized it." And then there's the cookie tins. "I've got a saying when you come in here, especially travelers if you can tell me how many cans is on the wall on both sides, you get a free piece of bubble gum."
"How many pieces of bubble gum you given away?"
"Two. The first one was a little girl about 12 years old and she just had a spell when she guessed it ."
Everywhere you look there are pictures, family memorabilia and a constant stream of regular customers.
"You won't do. I'm gonna have too."
