001something was happening on green street last year… something big. one of the historic buildings in the heart of downtown was being completely gutted and it caught my attention ~ it caught everyone’s attention. this is life in a small town – nothing goes unnoticed and speculation begins. I think I heard that a candy shop was going in when I was at the post office one afternoon and I was intrigued – and then when I learned that my friend, melisa, was involved, I was excited! melisa grew up in snow hill and recently moved back from across the bridge to care for her mother. meanwhile, mark schramek, who calls both snow hill and DC home, had wanted to start a project with his daughter, morgan, to teach her about business ~ what better idea to peak a 13 year old’s interest than a candy shop? melisa and mark have been friends for 15 years and initially melisa was helping him with the design and branding for the shop, but soon a partnership formed. with mark’s business savvy and melisa’s marketing experience after many years with whole foods, it was a match made in confectionary heaven. together, they have created a timeless experience where both nostalgic candy favorites and artisan chocolates can satisfy any sweet tooth. they also partner with a local dairy, chesapeake bay farms, ┬áto offer a rainbow of ice cream scoops, floats, and sundaes. since opening their doors in december, the shop has delighted locals and tourists alike as they are brought back to a simpler time.. in only for a little while. 2 3 3a 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 otcc-014 otcc-077 otcc-079
