Talk about a kid in a candy store. The old time decor & atmosphere takes me back to childhood days. Old favorites & new stuff too. I could spend hours in here just soaking it up.

Unique shop where you will find indivual pieces of wrapped candy to chocolate fudge or chocolate pieces to toys to antiques. Great place to pick up a neat gift for someone!
