Penny Candy Stores? Thu, 09/4/03 10:41 AM (permalink)
Hi everyone!
Does anyone know of any authentic penny candy stores, anywhere in the USA? I'm looking for stores that actually sell candy to kids for a penny.
Any leads would be very helpful.
Thanks very much!
Gretchen

      Here's a couple I found that you can order from and that actually have stores you can visit (next time you're in the mood to drive to New England). Your selection of things that actually cost a penny may be limited, but the Skinner's site says they still have "some" for just a penny. Have fun!
