The Al Gore Store

Looking inside the Al Gore store window

Carthage, Tennessee's favorite son was Senator Al Gore Sr. Then, Al Gore Jr. came along and became a Congressman, Senator, Vice President and finally Democratic Presidential nominee. This store, which is also a shoe store, has been displaying and selling Al Gore stuff. I first saw this place about 1992 when it said "Clinton Gore Store" on the window, but now it says "Gore Lieberman Store" on the window, although I see no Lieberman stuff in here. This is located across the street from the Smith County Courthouse on Main St. in the town square. Buttons, hats, T-shirts, plates, mugs, post cards, watches and socks.

In the top right is a sign that says "We have the largest selection of Campaign Buttons anywhere."

My favorite thing here is the "Big Bill" flyer in the bottom left. It's for a fishing lure with the tagline "Fish Take it...but don't inhale it."
