Memorabilia of Old Knifley: L.R. Chelf's Sells for Less

2015-11-23 - Adair County, KY - Photo by Larry Smith, FM 92.7 the WAVE & FM 99.9 the Big Dawg.
Larry Smith took this photo of an advertising item from the L.R. Chelf's store in old Knifley, KY. (Sun visor? He didn't say). The item is in the collection of the late L.R. & Nettie Chelf's great granddaughter, Mitzi Bault. The store, in a nearby location, continues to this day. Now it's Baker's Grocery. - EW Click Read More for Mitzi Bault's demystifying statement: What it is. Not a sun visor!)
