You guys! We just saw the report in USA Today detailing America’s Halloween time spending and we’re shocked! I mean, sure, we’re a little store, in a little town–and, we’re a little old (just kiddin'; kinda)–but, this year, the average amount that each American shopper will spend is 82.93–and that just seems crazy to us.

Never, in my life, have I appreciated Candy Buttons more than now–I have a toddler. They’re the tiniest candy, and they take hand eye coordination, and fine motor skills to enjoy; therefore, they take him a long time, and some good concentration, in order to eat just a few little treats.

I remember back when I first watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  (Of course, the Gene Wilder one.  The Johnny Depp one just isn’t anywhere near the same and I’m still confused why anyone felt the need to remake perfection. ;) )  Willy Wonka was the first movie that: A) intrigued me, B) excited […]
