Old shops in Latgale

I already posted photos of some shops in Latgale region of East Latvia. Here goes a few more. Usually they are called just "shops" (veikals) and not by some name because in most cases they don't need one as there is no competition - there is no other shop nearby. Also, most of them who haven't changed the place just kept the old time sign "veikals" for ages.

What can one buy in these stores? Probably bare neccesities and alcohol. Like in Russia, one must grow fruits and veggies on their plots to get by...
