Kellie Sandefur, owner and local resident of Lynchburg, took her childhood memories of her grandparent’s grocery store that once lived two doors down from her shop, and created the sweetest spot in town. She brings back that good feeling of when you’d save your pennies to fill up a brown paper bag with all of your favorites. As a kid, my favorites were the Runts, Candy Cigarettes, Bottle Caps, and Smarties. What were some of your favorites?
