all the saints are here

As I mentioned yesterday, I found the statue store right there on the main street of Benld, Illinois. Even though I have all the religious statues that I need*, I wish the place had been open: I would have liked to see this array of saints up close.

*Zero. I have zero religious statues. And that’s exactly how many I need.

I didn’t know what I’d see that Sunday morning on the main street of Benld. Maybe a bank. Or a liquor store. Or two or three dollar stores. I surely did not anticipate a store full of weathered religious statuary.

But that is indeed what was there, one door down from Stan’s Barber Shop and across the street from the Hebenstreit Apartments.

You just never know…
