Description: 

Not long after the Civil War, Sutpen's sole source of income is the "little crossroads store" he opens, "with a stock of plowshares and hame strings and calico and kerosene and cheap beads and ribbons" (147). It serves the poor whites and blacks who live in the area. Wash Jones is the store's "clerk" (147).
