Don't miss the annual 10 Mile Yard Sale May 17th-19th.
We will be open for our big season's end weekend! So come get your candy stash before we close the shop for summer!

Online ordering is now set on pause for the summer months and will be available again as usual, in the fall. Keep checking back starting in late September to early October. We ask that customers please call ahead between normal seasonal shop hour times, for special orders, and/or to be sure someone will be here to serve you.

Please check our site often as our seasons change and we add or remove specialty items according to each season. Check out our full line of products by clicking onto the menu at the top of the page.

Special notice to our customers, our shop and family are no longer affiliated with the Wilton N.H. location since it was sold in 2019, nor is Wilton associated with the Deerfield Fair or events in which our family is associated with.

All orders are processed, packaged and mailed within a day or two of placement. Please feel free to give us a call with any questions or concerns you may have about shipping or check out the shipping information page.

Most orders for pick up will be ready 1 to 24 hours after placement. Sometimes even sooner depending on size and availability. If you are ordering for pick up between normal seasonal shop hours please call ahead to make arrangements to come. Large orders will likely take extra time so feel free to call to check availability and lead time. Please keep checking the site as our seasons change and new product is added to our Products page. If there is something you are interested in and don't see it listed here, chances are we will have it, so just give us a call at 207-474-8973 or email us through the Contact us page with any questions you may have. We also fill custom orders for wedding, baby, anniversary and more so please inquire if there is something we can do for your next event.

Through the Generations

A Family Tradition

Our Restored Model - K Kiss Wrapping Machine

Below are photos and a video of our restored 1925 Model K kiss wrapping machine, made by Package Machinery Company in Springfield Massachusetts. We use this to wrap our homemade caramel kisses. Compliments and gratitude go out in memory of my Dad for helping us to achieve this awesome goal of continuing an old tradition.
