Sweets & Vintage treats..........






I happen to stumble upon this lovely shop, as I weave my PC around the many vast shops, blogs & websites out there....

It is an eclectic mixture of all things sweet, vintage, & of childhood memories.....


I fondly remember my walks home from school, & could not help myself, just walk past, a favourite sweet shop of mine....... called 'Jenny's.'

The type of sweet shop that, took the man & lady who ran the shop, twenty minutes, to prop up steps, to reach the jar on the shelf,.... that had to be weighed, then there was, another struggle to put the steps back, & for the jar to placed upon the shelf from where it came... !!!

The best bit...?

when they twiddled the paper bag around their hands,

(to look as if the bag hand two tiny ears...!!!)

before handing the delightful goodies over to you...

Mouth filled out like a chipmunk full of sugary delights....
Here's a link to this delightful shop....

Great name for a sweet shop (or a person)! I love traditional sweet shops :)

What a great find. I love these kinds of shops where it's a treat for your eyes and you have no idea where to start and hope that you don't miss anything! I have a similar shop that is attached to a tea shop. Cakes and craft, you can't beat that combination!
