Friends (and former Retrograde clients) Camille and Andy won this year, so after helping with their home a few years ago they asked me if I could give them some recommendations and help for their new business, Andy's Candy Apothecary.
How the hell could I pass up helping on a candy store!?!?!?
Andy's dream of bringing gourmet (as well as obscure, imported, and nostalgic) candy to downtown Sacramento is one of many signs that the state capital is really blowing up. During trips to visit them and the site, I'd have amazing coffee and eat at gourmet (and well designed!) restaurants and bars. It made me think twice about going back to the central valley (!)
Here are photos from the grand opening weekend:
I even got a shout out on the entry chalkboard, woo hoo!
Check it out when you can--it's worth a trip to Sacto to see the store and explore our capital city!
