Local Business

I have a pretty hard and fast rule about discussing the cool presents my kids get on my blog. You see, if you point out one cool present they get, then the other person wonders, "Why didn't she blog about my gift?" when in actuality that gift was totally awesome too! It's just too much to keep up with to play favorites with presents. Especially when my kids have gotten aMAZing presents from my aMAZing family and friends.

But I have to uphold my integrity as a local-business shouter-outer and blog about this one gift from a really cool family.

If you ever go to Broad Street in Southern Pines you'll see a multitude of local businesses that are so unique and incredible to walk through. Don't miss out. But there is one store tucked away in there that you don't want to miss. It's called Sweet Charity.

There was a lot more candy but I didn't get to the camera before my mouth got to the chocolate.

Sweet Charity is a local, family-owned candy store that has everything from caramels to chocolate to fruits to brittles! Even better, a portion of all of their profits benefits Mercy Ships, which is a great organization as well.

I have never had a bad piece of candy from here. I am telling you, the candy is more expensive than if you buy a Hershey bar from the grocery store, but it is so much better.

If you go to their website you can see all their candy on there.

Sweet Charity
171 NE Broad Street
Southern Pines, NC 28387

Seriously, you have got to check this place out. They also have some store candy, like Razzles and rock candy, so you can pig out on that kind of stuff too! Let me know when you go what you get - I am always up for trying a new candy and there are a few kinds there I haven't had yet!

Thank you Lauren for introducing us to this store; thank you Jennifer for bringing us back to it!

I think everything is sweet because the purpose is good. One thing that can encourage customers to patronize a product or a service is when they know that they can help other people with every penny that they spend. No wonder some local stores who support a charity or two keep on thriving. It's because of their willingness to help.
