Ye Olde Christmas and Candy Shoppe, nestled in historic Marietta Square, stocks a selection of nostalgic candies and festive gifts. Saunter up to the candy bar to tempt taste buds with homestyle fudge, imported Belgian chocolates, and sugar-, gluten-, and nut-free chocolates.

To complement the range of paper goods, staffers also stock shelves with useful gifts such as coasters and guest towels, as well as custom napkins that let guests know exactly whom to thank for stuffing the turkey with fluffernutters.
