Natchitoches, Louisiana

Pronounced "nack-uh-tish", this wholly Southern Louisiana town is a walking, people-watching, dining, shopping experience Mom and I indulged in a few days after Christmas. Die hard movie fans may recognize it as the film location for "Steel Magnolias", the theme of which permeates every do-dah shop in the historic district.

These photos were taken inside the Kaffie-Frederick General Mercantile Store. My pulse quickens and pupils dilate in hardware stores, always have since I was a little girl.

Need a meat grinder, rubber boots or a lasso? No problem.

Paint on the staircase worn thin by 150 years of foot traffic. Note the floor-to-ceiling cubbies at the bottom of the staircase brimming with every kind of pipe fitting you'd ever want or need.
Nice angles
