Are you in the market for a hand-cranked apple peeler? How about a heavy-duty black walnut nutcracker? Or maybe a transparent top repeating mouse trap? Might have a rough time finding those at your local store, but Rob Wilds found a place where you can get those things and many more, including a really hard-to-find item: hospitality. It's the Rocky Top General Store in Harriman.
