Driving home from St. Louis by way of Indianapolis, my sister saw the sign for the”World’s Largest Wooden Shoes”, so we exited and drove into the quaint city of Casey, IL.

This is what road trips are all about; discovering new and exciting things.

Little did we know there so many other Large item to see in Casey.

The Candy Depot has several nostalgic candy items with a gracious salesman who welcomed each visitor.

Home of the wooden shoes. Great like candy shop with a lot of history. Got the story on the town and the revitalization from an employee, whom you could tell was very proud of Casey, IL.

Candies of all type, go upstairs and you find jewelry, handbags, toys and seasonal items. A very nice place to visit and find a lot of the old type candies you can’t find anymore. It’s close to some of the big items, has the big shoe inside the candy store. Also close to the Big Dipper ice cream shop.

This is a great stop in Casey! It is easy to find on Main street, right behind the World’s Largest Mail Box! Two reasons to stop; delicious candies (GREAT Chocolates) and The World’s Largest Wooden Shoes! The Shoes are an amazing work of wood craftsmanship. You can see how the wood was laminated together & then the shoes carved out. The finished work was varnished to a beautiful shine. I really appreciated the work that went into this art. There are lots of “World’s Largest” in Casey, but my favorite was the shoes. Then of course we bought chocolates to snack on as we continued our road trip. Only thing I can say about that is that we should have bought more!
