Oden’s Store & Antiques

Oden's Store near Bath North Carolina is old country store off the beaten path

She has been there for as long as I can remember. This old country store is crammed full of treasures – depression glass, furniture, old signs, old tools and all the things you can't wait to discover.

I went to Oden's Store this spring searching for some fun pieces for my bed and breakfast in Williamston, NC – Big Mill.  Lynda was sitting by the big kerosene heater in the middle of the store chatting with some locals who had pulled up a bench to hear the news. And Lynda's down east accent is one you don't hear much anymore.

Lynda's grandfater built the store on Tankyard Creek in 1904. When the roads were paved, they rolled the store on logs to its present location on US 264.

If you like local culture, then Oden's Store and Antiques, still owned by the Oden family, is a jewel you just don't want to miss.
