We just visited a new shop downtown on W. First that I hope does very well. She's a Monroe Native and her shop is a step back into the candy store of your childhoods. From the creek of the wood floor to the "Vintage" candies, I was 7 yrs old again.
She also has specialty popcorns (made right there in the shop) and will ship baskets anywhere.
They have specialty homemade jams and butters (MMMMMMMM!), soup mixes and Amish items as well.
On the wall was a "Guess the Year" game with 6 or 8 candies you pick what year they were from. (I didn't guess correctly) But, we had a lot of fun trying.
She also has GREAT stocking stuffer items such as Jacks, Dominoes and Tiddly Winks in "vintage" tins.
GOD! I remember playing these things.
This is a very sweet little sweet shop and I wish her the best!
GO CHECK IT OUT! ! ! ! !
