Luther Marion Glaze did some peddling, operating what was sometimes called a "Rolling Store". He would travel to various wholesale establishments in Atlanta, picking items which he then sold around the county. In his younger days, Luther sold goods from a horse drawn wagon, then later from a pick-up truck. On occasion, his nephew, Herman Thomas Glaze, traveled with him on his rounds, as did Luther's father, Thomas Washington Glaze.
When Luther and Herman lived in Decatur, he ran two different grocery stores on Candler Road in the Late 40's and early 50's. Some of the grandchildren have a photo of it with Grace (Gracia Lee Glaze), Paul (James Paul Cox) , and Margaret (Margaret Ann Cox) in front of it. It was the kind that had fruit and veggies in baskets and candy in the big glass jars with the lids.
Luther Marion Glaze was known to his grandchildren as Papa Glaze. Papa "loved ice cream, every time we visited, we had ice cream". One of his grandchildren remembered, "Papa......... was a grumbler and complained a lot......... Maybe he had a hard life".
