Jessica’s Sweet Shop …. With Halloween In Mind

Jessica's Sweet Shop WolverhamptonThere’s a new sweet shop just opened in the Mander Centre, Wolverhampton and it would have be considered most rude of me not to sample some a few a whole pile of it’s delights …. purely as a fact finding crafty mission for Halloween you understand!
Jessica's Sweet Shop WolverhamptonThese are a few of the many sweets that inspired me …. the jelly filled skulls are an obvious choice … but I was thinking that the red candy cuttings could make passable cut veins …. the liquorice and fondant stripes:- teeth or spines, the green marshmallows:- snot balls, witches warts or some sort of larva and the blue spotty jelly:- poison balls???
The sweets cost 99p for a 100g, not perhaps that economical for bulk Halloween crafting, but for little one offs or fairing gifts, when you only need a few, they are perfect. I must look very suspicious when I go in as I move slowly past all the displays, because in my head I am working out what sweet could be used for what project and for what season …. I would take in a notebook but that would make me look even more shady!  Anyway I have got the sweets now I need to make something with them …. watch this space.

Ooh, Helen, I've just started working at Mr Simms Old Sweet Shop in Chester.We have all these sweets and my Mind is filled with goody bags too. The best bit about the job is that we were told we've got to taste every sweet as part of product knowledge training!!
