POWERS MARKET


North Bennington, VT - This is a photo of Powers Market in North Bennington, VT. I couldn't find out much about this store but from what I could find out that this store is a quite a landmark in North Bennington. One thing I did find out was that in 1948, Shirley Jackson after visiting Powers went home and wrote "The Lottery" in two hours; which is said to be "one of the most chilling and memorable short stories of the 20th century" (VT Magazine).

You even get a bonus moose shot.

Love these moose shots! When they had the Cow Parade in NYC it was really fun. So far, I've also seen a Horse and Dolphin Parades, but honestly, I can't remember where I say them! Maybe the horses were in Kentucky? That would make sense!
