Digging into the Treasure Chest
Seasons pass in the blink of an eye and there never seems to be enough time to catch a full breath. Being closed for several weeks has provided a bit of time to dig deeper into the history of the store by way of relics and remnants of times past as we organize storage. It's a lot like a time capsule, with many pieces of our history silently revealing the truth of what it means to be 85 years old. Through many dramatic world events, The Taffy Shop has persevered, so we are looking forward to a sunny tomorrow! Here are a few interesting finds that caught our eye... it's a legit treasure when our kids say "What is THAT thing?" (ice trays)
Clockwise: Community candy recipe book with local contributor names from the 60's; Aluminum ice trays (stumped the teenagers!); 'Philosophy' box, displayed in the front window, sayings changed often; Handpainted 9" plate from Don Allen to Lowell Slack in 1947 that included the stores mountain scene and perfect depiction of "The Taffy Shop" font.

Antibacterial before it was cool
"In the old days" (2 months ago) people didn't think twice about touching everything, then their face. In yet another testament to doing things the really old fashioned way, brass handles have antibacterial properties which limit the spread of germs on the surface. When you visit again, rest assured that we have brass door handles- and we clean surfaces several times a day, even before all this trouble began. (alternately, you can push the door open without touching the handle with your elbow unless its a really windy day, in which case we have latched the door purposefully) <---- insider secret!
Warm up your heart
One of the most popular pages on our website is where customers have contributed stories about The Taffy Shop. If you need a quick sentimental warm-up, this will do it. Here's a story that arrived this week:

"The Taffy Shop holds a special place in my heart as this was the one store my grandfather always had to shop at when he visited. His mother used to make taffy by hand in Iowa when he was growing and my father also remembers watching her pull taffy for hours. The Taffy Shop is the only place he had found that had taffy like his mother’s. When he would come to visit that was the one place he always took me. We would then go through the box and try all the different flavors. He always gave me the black licorice since that was my favorite. My grandfather has been gone for many years, but I still stop and pick up taffy whenever I’m in Estes. It is the best taffy around and always reminds me of time with him. " --Alicia S.
