mmmmmmmmm...... caaaaaannnddyyyyyy

Every year we make a few changes with this store.  This year we took out candy bars (Twix, Snickers, etc) and chips and put in bulk candy!!!  
I got excited about candy when I went to New York for my 30th birthday.  I walked into a candy store owned by Dylan Lauren (Raulph Lauren's daughter).  I thought, I want a candy store just like this one in Seattle!!  Live year round, and have an unlimited supply of sugar at my hands at all time! hee hee  So after I move on from Skagway Mining Co, that is my goal.  But for the time being, I put in some delicious and oh so yummy candy at SMC.  Marcos, my sweet and artistic friend in Spain, made the design on the bottom of the display!!  It's so creative!

On the left you can see a waterfall of candy..
trees made of gum drops and a dog with a candy cane in his mouth!
The sun is a lollipop!

On the right you see a panner mining for candy... I mean, really, candy is the new gold!

I put taffy in the old pans I bought off Ebay!  

The entire display!!
