One of my favorite things about the summer in the Gloucester location is that in the last few years it really has become a destination of sorts for folks from all over the world. Our Salem shop has enjoyed this diversity for years, as the PEM lives up to its reputation as an international draw. Here in Gloucester, though, it's still new to see so many cultures and people all over the island. My favorite international tidbit so far is that what we call non pareils here are called "freckles" in Australia. Cool!

So much for the fun, folks, now on to the busy part: At the start of summer (on my birthday, actually) I was alerted that our Salem shop would have to move out of its home for the past 5 years. We're really sad to leave 177 Essex St., but had no say in the matter. We'll have our last hurrah there this October, and will be moving in November.
So here comes the exciting part: OUR NEW DIGS! We are super excited to be moving just a couple blocks away to 318 Derby St. We're really thrilled to be just around the corner from two of my favorite foodie stores in Salem, A&J King Artisan Bakers and the Cheese Shop of Salem. With us at the tip, I think we are going to make a gorgeous tasty triangle of a neighborhood. A Bermuda Triangle of Tasty Delights! The Black Hole of Deliciousness! The Golden Triangle of Temptation! I could go on...
We hope (cross your fingers, folks!) to be up and running at the start of December. In the meantime, stock up on Essex St. all the way to Halloween, which will be our last day of business in that location. Remember, too -- the Gloucester shop has all the things you need, and will be open while the Salem shop relocates. It's beautiful drive out here. Trust me!
We'll keep you posted on progress, last minute news bits, and any crazy sales we might have on our Facebook Page. Visit often!
Until next time, folks, we're here. We're making candy. It's yours for the taking. Xxx.
