Mike Harper, Artist

C.S. Paxton brought the first Grab-It-Here store to Georgetown.  The store was located in various locations in Georgetown from 1903-1968.  The latest location was in the building that now houses Young’s Furniture & Appliance.  Many Georgetown residents worked at the Grab-It-Here over the years including Marlene Harper, mother of the artist, Mike Harper.
