We love the look of DUMBO’s new candy shop. The colorful sweets that create the colorful atmosphere of the shop are a testament to the owner’s past life working in visual merchandising for everybody from Victoria’s Secret to Ellen Tracy.
And, of course, we can’t help but be a little biased when we say this may beet even Jacques Torres as our new favorite indulgence, because Allison “Dewey” Oblonsky is a long time DUMBO resident.
Interviewed by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle Oblonsky said of her shop, ““I am looking to create a new space in DUMBO that will invite customers to stop in and buy their favorite childhood candies, while also creating a child-friendly and welcoming atmosphere. With today’s challenging economy, nothing makes people smile more than a stroll back through time with some of their favorite childhood treats.”
