Holiday Flavors & Ordering Info
Carl visited, from next door
We talk a lot about the fascinating history of Estes Park, often referring to the photos on our wall to refresh our memory about what it used to look like. It's not often that someone from one of the pictures arrives in the store! Last week, Carl Holt visited with his wife Edith, having spent most of their life in Estes, and this month reconnecting with family and friends locally. Well, Carls storefront is in one of the early images of The Taffy Shop, when our store was (originally) located in the Pueblo Building, 1 door West of our current location. In the first image, you can see his sign at the far left of the same building- "Carls Shoe-Shine" and "Denver Post Agency", and in the second image, Carl is standing in the doorway he occupied over a half century ago (!). Carl used to make the daily trip to Longmont to pick up papers, which in turn were picked up by local boys who delivered the paper along their routes. He shined shoes other times, in a space that still exists as part of the adjacent store. When you look at it, you wont believe how he did so much in such a small space. It's a privilege to operate The Taffy Shop, and serve as a collecting point for people and their stories in a time of such change, in our little place that is familiar to young and old.

Daily Operation Update
We're open every day (at the time of this newsletter), providing in-store and on-line service. If you prefer, we are happy to deliver your order to you at the curb, or in your vehicle- call us before you arrive to place and pay for your order. Of course, we follow all of the current health department requirements for sanitizing and occupancy and masks and etc- but this is nothing new to us, we always have been sticklers about cleanliness since we hold a food service license. There may be a slight delay to enter the store, since it is such a small space, the 'next in line' often waits at the door to come in. THANKS for your patience and loyalty.
