We have had lots of [organized] people in here stocking up on the stocking stuffers lately! (The rest are like us…they’ll be in next week. :) ) We have a store FULL of retro, and nostalgic, candy that makes candy fun–just like it used to be. SO…we went around last week and thought…’hmmm, if we were to put together an old-timey stocking, or gift basket, full of old-timey favorites–what would we add!?’ The for sure things we’d put in are Candy Buttons, Wax Lips, Candy Cigarettes, an Astro Pop, classic Pop Rocks, Fruit Stripe Gum and a bottle of Coke. (Though, anything we pictured here would work great, we think.)
If you’re still trying to stuff the stockings, figure out a co-worker gift, find something perfect for your niece or nephew, come up with an idea for what to surprise the grand kids with when they stop over, or maybe the stress of the holiday season makes you feel like you need to treat yourself to an old favorite (to pair with your wine, of course ;) )–we got ya covered.
Plus, we happen to think it’s really fun to shop in a small town this time of year–it makes YOU feel old fashioned, and it helps things to feel simpler. The media makes us feel so rushed, and crazy–wandering around Main Street, with Christmas in the air, really helps to center you in the spirit of it all–the way it should be. :) We are open, on the weekdays until 6 and on Saturday until 5. (Sunday…we rest. :) )
As always, if you’re looking for something specific, or have questions, call, or email, us. We love to hear from you! Also…if you love the candy idea, but just don’t have the time to make it to Anoka before Christmas–check out what we will deliver. We have some wonderful baskets that you can send to anyone in the metro area.
