Shopping at the Half Moon Gift Shop on Lee Lane in Covington was one of the most pleasant experiences for local residents and out-of-town visitors alike.
The gift shop was situated at the original location of the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper at the northwest corner of the Boston Street/Lee Lane intersection.
Following the Farmer office, there was a Citgo (or Sinclair) service station located there for a while. Its high roof peak building is still there, but has been modified heavily since those times.

The location was home to the Half Moon Gift Shop for a good while. Harriet Larsen ran it in the 1970's, then Penny Doster took over. I used to stop by and visit Harriet every so often, not only to talk about Lee Lane and Covington in general, but she offered free popcorn, fresh popped.
The gift shop had every imaginable gift one could be looking for, nice gift wrapping, and even more.
