Vidette Country Store

There may not be much left from its former heyday but the crossroads town of Vidette still shows signs of life with this busy little country store. The sign lists many available items, including: Grocery, Ice, Cold Drinks, Cig., Snack Bar, Bait, Fishing Stuff, Health, Beauty Aids, Belts, Hoses, Tires, Hardware, and Plastic & Galvanized Fittings. It seems like a lot of stuff for a little store but it’s the kind of independent business that typifies American enterprise, even in the fast-paced world of today. I’m always excited to find places like this.

These two businesses are long gone, but their names survive. E. A. Burke is located on the left; Shivers & Kelley is on the right.
