This is a picture of the oldest sweet shop in England taken in Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire. I have been all over the South and seen the Cotswold thatched cottages but I don't think you can beat an honest to goodness Yorkshire village with the stout stones bearing the weight of centuries, garlanded with flowers and hanging baskets in the summer.
Note the beautiful shop frontage with the elegant glass vials of sweets in the window. It has got tiny carousel in it, and I was going originally going to put a pic of a carousel in my challenge for gaudy, and it looks like the management thinks it will blend in with the sweets. One of them contains handmade sugary pink fluffy puff balls. They may be handmade, but with the best will in the world, they are gaudy.
