It’s hard not to drive past the Station and not have your interest piqued, with its exterior wood paneling, red-painted garage doors and lingerie-wearing mannequins in the storefront window — like a country antique store with a twist. Inside you’ll find pipes, vaporizers, T-shirts, e-cigarettes, body jewelry, “and a bunch of other stuff you have to be 18 years or older to see” according to the store’s Facebook. The former Texaco gas station got into the paraphernalia business in 1973 amid the gas crunch and never looked back. Taxidermy animal heads, vintage gas pump globes, and a pet cat and snake add to the store’s unique charm.
