Cashiers Candy Shoppe
If you’ve felt a bit disconcerted by the months of social distancing and low-level anxiety, treat yourself to a visit to A Jones Company at 3 Chestnut Square in Cashiers.
It’s a joyous tumble down the Rabbit Hole stocked with “Provisions for Fun Living.” A careful browse reveals a dazzling selection of home goods, women’s clothing and accessories, handcrafted jewelry, table linens, picnic supplies, serveware, and barware accessories.
At the center of all this is owner Amy Jones. She’s been a Cashiers presence since childhood summers spent on the Plateau. She opened this irresistible boutique in 2014 and named it after herself and her mother, Ann Jones.
“My intention was that I would create a fun and inspiring space in which to shop,” Amy says.
And that she’s done.
In fact, she upped the fun factor by leaps in August when she unveiled The Cashiers Candy Shoppe in the back of the shop.
In addition to gigantic Whirley lollipops and Jelly Belly Jelly Beans, much of the candy is from small batch confectioners such as Toffee To Go and Southern Caramels, gathered from around the country.
“We can create party favors, hostess gifts, seasonal gifts, etc.,” says Amy. “The Candy Shoppe has been a big hit with young and old alike – the children love the dazzling array of ca ndy, the colorful display lighting, small interactive toys and stuffed animals, and the older folks love the selection of sweets.”
They’re open Monday through Saturday 10:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M; and most Sundays from noon to 4:00 P.M.
If you need more information, you can call (828) 743-1111, but you really owe it to yourself to stop in – come on, there’s candy!
