One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

Hussey's General Store Advertises Guns, Bridal Gowns and Beer

Guns, wedding gowns, cold beer.  I think one of these things at Hussey’s General Store in Windsor, Maine does not belong with the other two, but I can’t decide which it is.

This is the opposite of what happens in the big cities, where specialty shops like Filipino groceries or antique travel book shops are common.  Is it better to split or merge?  The pleasure of a general store like Hussey’s is similar to the pleasure of browsing through library stacks: you’re likely to find something close to what you were looking for, and you’re even more likely to find something unexpected right next to it.
