Vendor Vail Wednesdays: Sweet Spot Candy Shop

Welcome to the candy shop today on Vendor Vail Wednesday’s second feature!  I would first like to announce the winner of last week’s giveaway to Classic Party Rentals of VA with a $50 gift certificate- Congratulations Megan!  I’m sure this will come in very useful for your upcoming wedding!

Today’s mouthwatering eye candy {oxymoron?} can be no other than the three talented women behind Sweet Spot Candy Shop located in Glen Allen, VA.  Read on:

Sweet Spot opened it’s doors to the West Broad Villiage location in Glen Allen on November 20, 2010.

When asked how they got their start, they said “From watching too much Willy Wonka and dreaming of the candy store in teh movie!  Really, we’ve always wanted to create a destination spot that was full of fun and adventure.  We sensed a need for that spot in the area and watned to fill it.  To us, a colorful candy store full of great seletions, activites, a place to hang out and a [place that] brings out a feeling of nostalgia was the place for us.  We spent almost a year researching and planning to create Sweet Spot.”

As the co-owners of Sweet Spot, Chrissy and Sarah search for delicious chocolates and interesting candies and sodas to sell in-store.  The storefront also is hostess to fun events that bring people together.  The bright, youthful and chic decor of the store is the perfect place to throw Candy themed {of course} birthday parties.  Custom party favors and gifts can be part of the party packages made from the wide array of colorful and tasty candies they provide.

Sweet Spot’s specialties are unique and hard to find chocolates, a great selection of nostalgic and bulk candy, an extensive soda collection mainly made with pure cane sugar as well as a large sugar free, gluten free and allergy free candies.  The interaction with their guests and attention to detail in the store is very important to them.  One of their many services of providing specialized gift packaging is one way they showcase their amazing sense of design. The design of their custom candy buffets and the creation of an atmosphere in their store that’s energetic and welcoming is another way they showcase the energy of their partnership and their love of their craft.

Chrissy and Sarah also offer support to many local charities involving children.  Candy really tends to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Sweet Spot was voted One of the Best Places to Get Your Candy Fix in Richmond Magazine’s Best and Worst Poll in 2011, which the co-owners were very excited about.  They were also first runner ups in Richmond.com’s poll for Best Sweet Shop and have been nominated for Downtown Short Pump’s Best of the West award for Best Family Outing and Best Desserts and Sweets.
