Childhood Memories of The Tuck Shop

At boarding school we had a place called the Tuck Shop which was basically a sweet shop or confectionary store as they call it in the USA. As youngsters we would get so excited to go and spend our 50p pocket money on whatever sweets we liked... lemon sherberts, milk bottles and liquorice laces and jelly beans are only a few of what would land in the bottom of my paper bag only to be savoured outside on the grass.

I came across this gorgeous shop based in Seattle and thought straight back to my Tuck Shop days. Admittedly Dean Close School Tuck Shop was by no means anywhere near as fancy as this but in our ten year old eyes it was sweetie heaven. 

Imagine being a child and walking into a store like this - your eyes would be as wide as saucers!
