Except for Marcantonio’s on the corner of Murdock St. and Hutchinson Ave., run by Guiseppe “Chipazeek” Marcantonio, and the little store on Iron St. run by Sam “Shy” Benowitz, the Tiny Store on Pike St. in my hometown of Canonsburg, PA, was my introduction to commerce…and candy. The folks who worked there were like family; in fact, one of the butchers, Mario DiSalle was my cousin through his wife, Lena!
Statistical Update: See this important post.
Technical: According to the Tiny Store Facebook page, where this reference photo is from, the Tiny Store closed its doors in 2013. As usual, I used the photo as a reference to do a quick, rough, free-hand, side by side rendering in Procreate. It was anything but tiny!
