Bee Happy!

How can you help but smile?!?! These solar operated dancing flowers are sure to put a smile on anyone's face! We're thinking of lining them up in the front window and letting them dance all day! Although they are useful for nothing (other than smiles and good cheer), we feel these Bee Happy Dancing Flowers will be a hit on window sills in Metro area kitchens! They're on their way, and will cost under $10. Colors are assorted, and we're going to have a ball with them.
Speaking of smiles and good cheer, some of our favorite smiles come from customers who actually get a sample of our (current) favorite CFC chocolates. They're made in Oklahoma by a fabulous British chocolatier, and we are happy to sample out some of their sweet goodness. CFC stands for Champagne, Fragola, Chocolat (Champagne, Strawberries and chocolate), and we have their signature CFC piece in both milk and dark chocolates. It's okay to ask for a sample.....but we draw the line at begging for more!
More later......
Have a happy week, and come see us.

Action figures-sometimes Yes, sometimes NO WAY!

When you need that special gift for that special someone, try an action figure!!!
How 'bout that gal friend who has way too many cats? Try the Crazy Cat Lady action figure:

At The Candy Basket, we also have a lot of librarian customers and friends. We have added the following action figure to our lineup, and it's the perfect gift!

For your Holier-than-Thou friends, or pastor, or church buddy, try the Jesus action figure:

And for the strong, independent ladies in your life, we highly recommend Rosie....

All of these terrific action figures are available at The Candy Basket, and are perfect gifts for those hard-to-buy-for friends! Just what you would expect from a candy store, right?!?! Remember - we're MORE than JUST a candy store!
Come get 'em!

See you soon....

We're rushing to RUSH!

The problems with blogging occur when there's no time, creativity, or inclination to do so. That's what's going on with me right now! I've been busy, I'm not feeling creative, and I'd rather read others' blogs than work on my own! So....with that in mind, I'll go ahead and update y'all on what's happening at The Candy Basket.

We're knee-deep in Rush preparations. Rush is HUGE at OU, and for the past 10 years or so, we have had the opportunity to participate in the Recruitment Orientation, where the rushees and their parents are held captive in Lloyd Noble Center for an hour or so while officers of the Panhellenic Council describe the benefits of pledging a sorority and spelling out some rules and regulations.

So here we are - Rush Survival Kits are ready to go in three different versions; a big honker OU basket will show off what we can do for the new members; and we have some of our cutest stuff ready to show the girls....from koozies and bottle suits to hand-painted wall signs.

Now, all Melissa and I need to do is figure out if we're going to wear black or red!! Decisions, decisions! More later (when I'm feeling creative and productive)..... Madame G
