Goodfellows Jewelry in Barre
Barre is a small town by most standards with a population of almost 10,000 but to us it is the local city. It has enough people to actually support a lot of interesting local stores that I’m surprised to find, places I would think would require a larger population. I am always amused by the name of this jewelry store. It makes me think “Mob” with a capital em. Not that they look like mobsters or there is any indication that they are, it’s just the name.
Off to the left is an ancient device that older readers might remember from their childhood, but you would have to be very old. It was based on magic, back when the boxes still functioned. You would put a piece of paper in one of these boxes and then it would pop out somewhere else, could be thousands of miles away or just across town, all for only 44¢ or less. It is rumored that gnomes ran an underground system of tunnels that zipped the parcels around. Others claimed that it was done by elves as part of Santa’s organization. My bet is he and the Mob are somehow connected. After all, look at the juxtoposition of the ‘mailbox’ and the store.
