Checkers, Anyone?

Not far from the Old Depot Museum, Everyman Books offers checkerboard tables on its front porch. Bring your checkers and play awhile, or go inside and browse hundreds of interesting books and novelty collections. The proprietor has everything from old stoves and quilts to jewelry, handbags and area travel information.

Also in the building, Charlie "The Tin Man" Lucas might be found working in his art and sculpture studio.

Then, on the second Friday every month, participate in "Open Mic" Night. Read
your poetry or sing and play your song. Everyone is welcome!

Everyman Books is located on Martin Luther King Jr. Street next door to Holley's Farm and Garden Center.

That could also be used as a chess board. :)

Tell Charlie he's really famous now. He's made it on two Daily Photo blogs. Yours and mine. I'd like to see inside his studio. Can you give us a peek???
