Story Book Express - Fairytale Convenience Store

Story Book Express is a local convenience store that is built with all sorts of odds and ends on the outside. There is a bowling ball placed in the wall, and a large electrical outlet on one corner of the building. It really is an abstract work of art or as they say... Fairy Tale Art. Located on the corner Sycamore and Apperson streets.

[Charles Lewis, 11/17/2012]

The store/gas station was built in 2012 from recycled materials -- salvaged from places such as demolished brick school buildings -- and designed in a whimsical "storybook architecture" style.
