Cecil's


Roxie, Mississippi


I like to drive through little towns, the smaller the better.  Usually something can be found to take a picture of and Roxie didn't disappoint.  I doubt a 100 people call Roxie home.  Cecil's was the highlight.  I like how one door says "Open" while the other "Closed".  Notice the two comfortable chairs.  Just sit out front and visit, I bet that is all that Cecil really does.  He probably never sells anything as the highway bypasses Roxie and one has to make a point of going there.  Cecil probably doesn't care either.

Around the side.

I wonder how they make a living when nobody ever passes, exept you of course. It looks like he has collected a lot of stuff anyway.

It must be a gem for an americana collector. I like these travel postings of you. Just beside the normal way.

intruiging; I guess the smaller the towns are the quicker you make it to the next one?

I like your picture of the back as it shows in more detail what it there. These people have to be a little odd to have something grow like this. Now there's nothing wrong with oddballs!

Great place!

That would be a fun place to browse. I'll bet there are plenty of unintentional antiques, stuff that's just been on the shelves for the past 30-40 years.
