Dewey’s will be showing people how to create their very own buttons using retro candy wrappers. How cool is that? Candy conosuir Michele Boudreaux, who creates unusual lollipops will be leading the session inside Dewey's Candy Store. Check out her lollipop creations, available through her very own Etsy shop, Lollipops By Milhow.
And if you’ve never visited Dewey’s then you might not know we specialize in nostalgic and retro candy. We have over 100 varieties of retro candy, including your childhood favorites like Wax Bottles, Pop Rocks, Necco Wafers, Bonimo Turkish Bottle Caps, Bazooka, Candy Buttons, Fun Dips…the list goes on and on.
