Sweet-toothed customers have gone mad for a new retro confectionary business which has opened up in Thame town centre.
On Saturday morning Thame mayor Jeannette Matelot Green cut the ribbon on My Sweet Art Creations in Swan Walk, which is the brainchild of businesswoman Alicia Wallace.
The innovative mum-of-three has opened the retro sweet shop and party venue with her sister Sabrina Vickery after the venture she started in her living room last year became too big to operate from home.
Now customers can see her decorative sweetie trees for themselves, as well as her vintage sweet cart and shelves groaning with jars of sugary treats. The shop also has a party venue attached, where groups can have a go at making their own sweet treats themselves.
Alicia said: “People said it was like a trip down memory lane for them with all the retro sweets. They loved the fact they could actually pick out the ones they wanted – it really took them back. There were so many happy, beaming faces of all ages!”
Alicia has also teamed up with nearby shop Ella Jane Gifts to run a raffle in aid of local boy Nat Armstrong, who suffers with a life-threatening condition which means he cannot digest any proteins or sugars. Pop in to buy tickets, or call 01844 690101.
