I Want Candy!

Sweet Mickey's, a candy shop with lots of heart!
This adorably charming sweet shop was named after the owner's Grandmother, Mickey.
When you stop in please ask about Grandma Mickey; her story will make you love this shop even more than you already do!

Us gals at Horseshoe want you to welcome Sweet Mickey's to Ballard!

  Have you been to this sweetest little candy shop yet?  Not only will you fall head over heels for all their nostalgic candies but you're mouth will water when you see their selection of gourmet confections, homemade ice cream ready to be scooped into a decadent cone(we're talkin' pretzel, chocolate chip, m&m and more) and they have the real deal A+W Rootbeer Float, to boot!  Need we say more?

Oh yes we should, Sweet Mickey's is located across from Viking Bank on NW 57th Street.  You can see it as your watching the talented kids riding their boards at the skate park.

Sugar fix...done & done!

 Meet Candy Randy (aka Randy Brinker) who will delight you with his friendly demeanor, quick wit and if your nice he might even let you sample some of his shop's sweet treats!

Randy and his lovely staff made us feel right at home while taking some pics of some
 of our favorite, cheery, summer dresses!

Some Nostalgia
memories of the concession stand at the public pool , Dad's favorite pick

memories of shopping at the five and dime store

memories of always preferring ice cream on a cone...now the adult version!

memories of Zots being a favorite after school treat while playing video games in 1984

RUN don't walk to Sweet Mickey's....we just might buy them out of inventory!
