SOUVENIRS AT THE GENERAL STORE
The James Valley Show Souvenir Shop
The General Store, also known as the Souvenir Store, is the place to buy our souvenir mugs, show buttons, Frisbees, t-shirts and sweatshirts, blankets and other souvenirs during the Show. The building was built in 2001 with money donated by the Gordon Bergh family and Dick and Marvel Washnok. In 2011 it was spruced up with new white walls inside, installed and painted by Gary Clynick and Donna Anderson.
Artist Terry Redlin was inspired by visits to our Show to paint “Harvest Memories” and “Building a Commnity”. He signed a framed print of each of them and donated them to our organization, and they hang in the General Store during the Show for visitors to enjoy. The “Building a Community” picture graces the cover of our 40th Anniversary book, which is also available for purchase in the General Store.
The General Store is also where our 10-20 year olds may sign up once every day of the Show for the Carl Johnson Memorial Free Tractor Giveaway. Under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The winner’s name is drawn Sunday afternoon.
