Last Sunday marked a milestone for Candy By Candy: my first pop up shop! The relaxed and convivial atmosphere at Stratus Vineyards’ Kristlemas Market put everyone in holiday spirits. I could not imagine a better setting for a debut. It was a busy week leading up to the market. I even set up a mock table at home to make sure everything would be ready!
On Sunday, I arrived bright and early in Niagara-On-The-Lake and nestled my table beneath one of the 8000L wine barrels in the vineyard’s press alley. At eleven o’clock sharp, my first customer came and scooped up marshmallows, mocha mallomar surprise, and Kristlemas special bar. From that moment on, it was a day of non-stop fun. I am so glad that I got to meet many of you in person! Although I’ve been showing you photos and descriptions of all the candies and chocolates over the last little while, it doesn’t compare to seeing and tasting the real thing.
You made me happy to see faces light up at first taste of handmade marshmallows. Or the surprises you felt from the decadent samples of Nutella nougat and spiced hazelnut shortbread with milk chocolate. I worked hard to create these unique treats. These are sweets that I crave. I am thrilled that you love them as much as I do!
I still have a limited supply of individual pieces available for sale. You can check out the catalogue for current selection and email me to place an order. A handful of gift sets are also available but they’re running out quickly. You can shop for them at the online store.
Thank you to all of you who came out to Kristlemas Market and made it memorable! You can follow me on twitter or Facebook to get up-to-date information on future market appearances. Have a sweet and happy holiday!
