Best. General Store. Ever.

Carrie informs us that in Windsor, Maine, there's a general store called Hussey's.

If they don't have it in stock, you can probably get along without it

The items listed on the store's sign remind me of one of my favorite lines from Dr. Strangelove, in which Slim Pickens is reciting the contents of the on-board survival kit for each member of the bomber crew:
...one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.
