Sweet Dreams

Candy Land appeared in January, but didn't see the year out.  When I walked by 7th and Fourth last weekend, the space was opened up into the laundromat next door.  It had seemed like an over-ambitious venture from the start.  Although there's a school across the avenue, it's hard to see how a regular candy store could survive on sweet sales alone these days - in this location at least - unless it had some special, upmarket spin. How many gumballs and sours to pay the rent in 2013?  I'm sorry it failed though - the store owners were kind & hopeful & I wished they'd defied the odds.
