Lots and lots of old fashioned sweets bring back all sorts of memories. We 'escaped' with just a few but we could have spent a fortune!

We were looking for a specific old time sweet and the sign said that this was it. No it wasn't. It was expensive and not even nice or worth the money. False advertising.More
