Grammy would approve
One of Rayne's claims to fame is that it is still home to a true five-and-dime store (and not just one of the national dollar stores that are everywhere). Worthmore 5&10 is currently run by the grandchildren of its original owners and has sat on this corner--shelves stuffed with goods both practical and whimsical--for as long as anyone living in Rayne can recall. The front window was already full of Christmas gear--the day after Halloween. This is the kind of place my Grandmother used to love: perfect for picking up, in her words, "Oh ya know, this 'n that."
