BOSTON, GA (WALB) -
One mailman's daughter is honoring her father's memory in a big way.
Alice Durham bought the former Boston post office building where he father worked for about 50 years, and transformed it into a vintage shop.
Spence Hallman served as a United States Postman for 50 years at 111 North Main Street here in Boston.
"Back in June, my dad passed away and a few weeks later I had a chance to acquire the building. I thought it would be a nice way to honor my dad by opening a little store," said Durham.
Alice Durham and her business partner Jay Redmond say they wanted the shop to have the same feel it did 50 years ago.
"We stripped all the floors, took it back to the original floors. We pulled everything off the walls, went back to the original brick walls. We spent about two and half months getting it back to the original building," said Redmond.
Redmond says one of their main goals is to revitalize downtown Boston. "We're hoping to bring some of our customer base to Boston. We have a really good following in Sasser at our stores up there and hopefully we can bring some of those customers to here and just liven up the town again a little bit."
And Durham says she wants her customers to feel like they are right at a home.
Just like her father did.
"If an older lady was baking a cake then he stopped and bought her a dozen eggs if she was out of eggs. If he had an elderly lady that couldn't come out to the mailbox, he went out every morning, had a cup a tea, to her mail to her in her home."
The store is celebrating it's Grand Opening Friday night from 6 to 8 p.m.
