This is an old drugstore that was connected to the restaurant we ate lunch at while in Marion,Ky.The owners Mom said "the owners of drugstore locked the doors one day and left everything."It was very neat to see all the antiques.They still use all the soda fountain stuff. The food was very good.We met the mom of cafe first at an antique store on down the street where I got this old quilt top. I think the reason why it is a top is a beginner must have done it. Points don't match and it has pleats in it to make it fit. I love it!!!!!!!!!!! Not the best photo,but the wind was not helping me. I guess it could be raining.
This is from one of the antique shops.All the rooms were set up like rooms of a house. Did I mention Marion has an Amish Settlement. We visited Ella's quilt shed,a bakery, a rug maker,and a general store. I loved the ride thru this area.

Ready for a ride thru the countryside?
