State Capitol Week in Review
In downtown Branson there is a store called “Dick’s 5 & 10.” When you walk in the door, it is like being transported back to the 50’s and 60’s to the Ben Franklin Store. Even the red and gold striped shopping baskets are the same. The store is always crowded, because people love nostalgia. It abounds here, with thousands of products, some of which you won’t find in modern stores. I look around, and so much looks familiar, so like the place where I spent so many years. Even the layout is very similar, from the greeting card rack to the notions counter to the huge assortment of candies.
