This decorative piece is a replica of Mrs. Parkley's General Store from the Sarah, Plain and Tall movie featured on the Hallmark Hall of Fame that relays the heartwarming tale of Sarah Wheaton, an early settler on America's Western Plains. In 1994, Hallmark had artist Tim Bauer sculpt five pieces for their Sarah, Plain and Tall Collection to capture the simple beauty and strength of America's early settlers on the Western Plains.
On the base of each building in the collection is a brief description of the significance it had in Sarah's store. The bottom of this figurine reads, "The General Store was a good place to hear news about the neighbors, because everyone stopped by to pick up mail and purchase food, dry goods and other provisions."
Because of the perseverance and dedication of America's early settlers on the Western Plains, entire communities emerged from open prairies…one building at a time. The heartwarming story of Sarah, Plain and Tall, a Hallmark Hall of Fame production, comes to life in these handcrafted miniature replicas of actual scenes from the frontier-days movies.
Designed with authentic architectural detailing and holiday decorations, the Sarah, Plain and Tall Collection features five unforgettable scenes: Sarah's Prairie Home, The Country Church, The Hays Train Station, Mrs. Parkley's General Store, and Sarah's Maine Home -- all of which are sold separately in our store. Displayed together or separately, the buildings in the Sarah, Plain and Tall Collection are sure to warm your heart at Christmastime or even throughout the year.
All of the pieces we have available come new in their original boxes and were only opened to inspect, photograph, and measure each piece. They were previously owned by one person who never displayed them and kept them carefully stored in a smoke-free, climate-controlled environment.
If you would like to buy the whole five-piece collection, we do offer combined shipping, which is calculated at checkout, so you can save a great deal over what you would pay buying them individually. You will find the complete collection available under the Collectibles > Hallmark category.
