sweet shoppe adventures.

Sundays are always happy for me.
While my son has a day with his dad,
I venture up to Orange County where my boyfriend lives.
We always enjoy ourselves no matter what we are up to,
{being together with the man I love makes me a happy girl}
but this weekend we popped in and discovered a fun little place!

Powell's Sweet Shoppe is quite possibly the cutest candy store I have ever been in. Not only is it darling and bright and happy, but it is packed {I mean packed!!} with candy of all kinds. Lots of things you would never normally find make this place such a gem. I am always on the lookout for unusual candies, especially at this time of year when the Easter Bunny needs to make an appearance. :) I like to find things that my child hasn't seen a thousand times in the aisles at Target, and I am so excited to make a return visit next month to put together Andrew's Easter basket!

Places like this make me happy.
Vintage lunchboxes, posters, Willy Wonka songs playing...
the perfect trip to the candy store.
And of course, it helps to have a cute man at your side
buying you a gigantic peanut butter cup.
Yeah... He's pretty amazing. ;)

Find out if there is a Powell's near you here!
And make sure you fill your Easter baskets
with vintage-inspired candies and confections.

I need to remember...
The Easter Bunny doesn't shop at Target.
Find some more fab vintage candy goodies here. :)
Happy Monday!
xo!
