A Shop in the Catskills: Russell’s General Store in Bovina



We try to shop at Russell’s when we can instead of Price Chopper.
A lovely woman named Bea runs this establishment
that has served the residents of Bovina, NY since the 19th century.



She keeps some of the things that used to be sold on display.







She likes simple, wholesome, American farmhouse décor.







Bea will make you an egg sandwich from farm fresh eggs!



So, if you’re ever in Bovina, drive to the east end of Main Street and say hi!


‘Till next time, stay shabby!

I couldn't help but notice the dress form in the shop. I wish I lived close by so I could go and snag it!
The display of gloves remind me of my mother, because she never went anywhere without gloves.

What a jewel!

A lovely gift to today, from the past. A surviving old time country general store.

Thank you Bea!!!

Sandy I love Bea's little shop. In the nearest town to me there are sweet little shops like this. The town has not allowed bigger discount stores to build in the town and it has remained a quaint little authentic western mountain town. People are like family and all watch out for each other, just like the teeny town I live in. I love little shops like Bea's and will patronize them every chance I get.
hugs
