A Quarter Of

A colourful, zany website that features the charming and compulsive compilation of captivating, childhood confectionery – all those lovely sweetshop goodies that you thought had been rendered obsolete by the passage of time, and the loss of those lovely big glass jars in colourful old shop windows. The mouth-watering collection comprises everything you can remember and more. This fabulous, online, old-fashioned candy store was created by owner and MD, Michael Parker after a conversation with some friends and locals in a pub.
