From dawn until dusk, Florence Avenue (Virgilina's main drag) is wall-to-wall with crafts kiosks. Folks come from all over Virginia and North Carolina, follow these festivals (I imagine many of the same lot attend a similar festival in Scottsburg on every 4 July). Different from years past, the crafts kiosks folded up well before this picture was taken in the late afternoon. I'm guessing the heat probably caused most of them to close early.
Virgilina Grocery is a very small family-owned grocery store. There used to be as many as 3 grocery stores in Virgilina, but this is the last of the lot.
What to buy: A small selection of groceries.
What to pay: For such a small selection, the price is rather high because they cannot compete with the chain stores in Clarksville, Oxford, Roxboro (NC), and South Boston.
