35 Things You'll Find Inside The Green Corner Store in Little Rock.

In a decades-old storefront in Little Rock's South Main District, you'll find The Green Corner Store, an eco-friendly lifestyle store that offers organic and local items of all sorts. It's a rather neat place, with a working soda fountain operated by Loblolly Creamery and so many gifts and daily-use items to take home. Let's take a look inside.

The Green Corner Store originally opened in 2009 inside the circa 1905 Lincoln Building, which was built by a local drug wholesaler, C.J. Lincoln. It originally housed the C. H. Dawson drug store and soda fountain, which operated for 60 years. After being vacant for a while, the building housed a car audio store and most recently a law firm. Today, you can go in, have a milkshake and chat with the ever-friendly staff.

Since The Green Corner Store opened, the South Main District has blossomed, and today the shop includes The Root Cafe, Boulevard Bread and Moxy amongst its closest neighbors. It's on the same block as the Bernice Garden.

Let's look through some of the many items you'll find inside.
