Georgetown Valley Candy Company Sells Online



While vacationing in Colorado in November, we traveled through a picturesque town with a distinct Victorian look called Georgetown.



Shops of all kinds line both sides of the quaint main street. One of the "sweetest" is the Georgetown Valley Candy Company, located in the cushman Building/Block. 



As soon as we walked in, two women employees welcomed us.  It's nice to walk into a place and to be treated like a special guest.



Behind glass counters are all kinds of delectable looking candies. Come to find out, the owners of this shop make the candy in small batches. They use slow-cook methods for freshness and good taste, according to their brochure.



The shop carries all kinds of gift items, too. The teacups and teapots draw my attention like magnets.




Here's Melissa Kuyatt, one of the very friendly shopkeepers.


The stunning stained glass windows in the shop came from a mortuary in Denver! 





One mirror on the wall behind the counter came from the Windsor Hotel, also from the capital city. Another mirror was said to have been found at the old Tabor Opera Building in Denver.

Oh my goodness, when I recognized the building, I realized that hubby and I had an icecream sundae here years ago. Colorado is gorgeous, but I'll stillt ake the beach.

As lovely as the candy is, it was the teapots that captured my eye! And I love the street scene...feels like Colorado for sure. Beautiful.

Do you see what time Linda and Bookie left their comment? I was fast asleep.

Anyhow - that would be a highly DANGEROUS store for this gal to go too. Looks wonderful. I'd be broke and fat.

Love,
