A. Schwab General Store, Memphis TN April 2013

A trip to A. Schwab is a step back in time to the great days of general stores, offering a great selection of everything you need, and many things you might not. We'd been in here on our previous trip to Memphis in 1992. 

Browse through 44 kinds of suspenders, a wall of voodoo love potions and powders and a full kiosk of Elvis souvenirs. Discover bongo drums and crystal balls, shoeshine kits and corncob pipes, long thermal underwear and cotton petticoats, praying hands and plastic back-scratchers. 


  1. It sounds more interesting than yiou usual department store!

  2. Nice old timey look to the scene. I'll have to put it on my list for when we visit Memphis.

  3. This seems huge. Nice capture.

  4. They must really be into suspenders in TN!

  5. Lovely mural, a look back in the past.
