A Sweet Shoppe

Going back and forth to Garnett, I often come through Eudora, and there is a lovely little candy shop that also sells old-fashioned phospates, cola drinks, lemonades, floats, etc.  I have always wanted to stop in there, and yesterday, coming back from an unexpected trip, I did.
 
(I tried to post this last night, but Blogger wouldn't let me!)

 
Is this truly a sweet little shop or what?  She sells lots of different candies, popcorn, chocolates too.  There is a jukebox and plenty of seating. 
 
 
Here is Penny Annie herself, behind her beautiful old counter, taken from a hotel in Garnett years ago.  See the marble top?
 
 
I see a trip for the grands in the near future... they need to experience an old-fashioned sweet shop!
 
More later today, just wanted to get yesterday's post up!

  1. This reminds me of the old corner drug stores or soda fountains we use to have. It is nice that a piece of the past has been brought to life again.
