Ft. Alafia Country Store
The ultimate destination of this Road Trip Across the South was this old gas station, transformed by the creative antiques sleuthing (a.k.a "junking") and brilliant merchandising of the Waring family. It is the Ft. Alafia Country Store. We landed here late Thursday night, after a long day driving from Mobile. The shop was glowing and busy with Afton's mother, father, brother, and aunt putting on the finishing touches before the Grand Opening this weekend.
