Penny Candy

One thing I remember as a kid—penny candy was huge! I think Simmons’ Store had a better selection but Gracie didn’t really have a lot of patience when you were picking out candy. But if you went to Gray’s Store, you could stand there all day long if you wanted to, and Leonard would take a half an hour if that’s what it took you—one of these, one of these, one of these!  He didn’t have as good a selection, but he wouldn’t scare you the way Gracie did. I’m sure a lot of my friends would say the same thing.

Based on an oral history interview with Heather Bixby Fitzgerald.
