Soda pop, postcards and historic photographs—just the things the roadside wanderer might seek—for sale at Sharp’s Country Store in Slatyfork. The store first opened in 1884 and has been run by the Sharp family for generations. Sharp’s also carries homespun wool blankets by JoAnn Gardner, whose great grandmother used to deliver her wool products to Sharps’ Country Store by horseback.

Sharp’s Store is located just miles from the turnoff to Snowshoe Mountain in Slatyfork. When you stop by, the own Tom Shipley can tell you the entire story of Sharp’s Country Store and his uncle who put the “man falling from his ladder” dangling from this red barn. 304- 572-3547
