Description: 

Varner's store is in many ways the center of Frenchman's Bend, an important site in many of the Yoknapatawpha fictions; for example, it is the hamlet in The Hamlet. In Flags, the village is seen only briefly, at night, as Byron Snopes drives past on his way out of the county, and summed up in a sentence: "Varner's store, the blacksmith shop (now a garage too, with a gasoline pump), Mrs. Littlejohn's huge, unpainted house--all the remembered scenes of his boyhood" (278).
