New candy making toys

Our latest vintage candy tool is a Candy Crimper form 1886. It's a crank machine that makes ribbon candy. You can see it at the candy counter in the store. I can't wait until Christmas when we can be one of the few places in the world that make hand made ribbon candy. See you at Lofty. Open until 10pm.

Travels with Greg: Yum Yum in Chiefland Florida

For Greg this week has been fun. Since Sunday my family and I have been enjoying spring break in Cedar Key. We've watched Dolphins, caught two fishes (Jane's first), and just relaxed. One of the high points of Cedar Key is the visit to my friends Peggy and Don's shop just off Cedar Key in Chiefland Florida called "Yum Yum's ice cream shoppe." It's a fun family run shop where Don runs a Do-Jo in a building behind the ice cream shop. They have three sizes of everything. The Yum, The Yum Yum and the Yum Yum Yum.
Very nice folks. They post photos of their customers on their walls, they cover them like tiles. If you go by, try and find the photo of my daughter Jane. It's fun, like playing "Where's Waldo" with photos.

Friday Zen: Ice cream hangover cure

To celebrate the day after St. Patrick's day I bring you this:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
1 banana
2 scoops of ice cream
2 cups milk
2 tbsp. honey
Peel banana, put in blender add honey, milk and ice cream blend until frothy. Pour into glasses, and drink at once.
And yes, we have all the ingredients for one of these at Lofty Pursuits.
