Default Curly's Pickin Parlor

Hi - can you help me?

Some years ago I visited North Carolina (somewhere between Wilkesboro, Greensboro and Charlotte) and whilst travelling one Sunday I stopped somewhere where there was a small outdoor market. In the same place there was a diner in an old railroad carriage, a old dancehall/cinema and a store selling guitars and other musical instruments - I think it was called Curly's.

Do you recognise this description? If so where is it.

Hi,
Thanks for responding. There was a gas station nearby, a Diner, in an old railroad type coach/carriage, an old cinema/dance-hall and a used book store which was located in a long wooden building that fronted the parking/open market area. I'm pretty certain it was a Sunday when I travelled through, and the open-air market was winding down.

Hi, Thanks for the response. This looks (Google Earth/Maps) fairly like it. I had been attending Merlefest in Wilkesboro so probably took the wrong route back to Charlotte airport. Do you know if there is (was) an old Diner in an old grey coloured, railroad coach/carriage nearby? If so, this is probably the one! Thanks again.
