|This store has been around since the early 1950's. The lady inside pointed to the peanut roaster and said it has not moved since the store opened. How's that for a talking point?|
|The chrome plated cylindrical peanut roaster takes 20 minutes to roast a batch of shelled peanuts. The lady running the shoppe was gracious enough to let me take as many pictures as I wanted inside.|
All kinds of nuts and candy are sold in this little store, most made on the premises. Talk about a niche market. This place seemed to have a very strong customer base, mostly made up of locals. My son and I bought some of the Peanut Candy (Peanut Brittle to a former Midwesterner like me). If you ever get to Charleston, West Virginia (which I highly recommend, by the way) stop by The Peanut Shoppe.
