Forget your notions of what a candy store should be. We’re not saying remakes of retro candy aren’t delicious, but the shop that sells them doesn’t need to be stuck in time. Smeeks, “a sweet little shop for sweet little folks,” is an update on the candy stores of our grandparents’ generation. While you’re sure to find old timey treats like Abba-Zaba and C. Howard’s Violet, owner Georganne Bryant, who also operates Frances Vintage boutique, scours the country to stock Smeeks’ shelves with modern-day delights. The candy collection includes local treasures like Tracy Dempsey Originals and Goodytwos Toffee, as well as out-of-state imports including handmade Hammond’s chocolate bars in flavors like More S’mores and PB&J Sandwich and artisanal selections from Whimsical Candy like handmade sea salt caramels and the three-day labor of love called La-Dee-Dahs. Smeeks also stays on top of seasonal specialties, like Pumpkin Patch Pop Rocks in the fall and heart-shaped Valentine’s candies in February.
