From mid-November to late December, the Masonic Temple in London is a handy, dandy place to buy candy.
Once again, the London Federation of Women’s Clubs has set up its Christmas candy sale at 65 N. Main St. in London. The sale features 62 varieties of sweet treats plus four sugar-free options. New this year are mocha meltaways, pecan caramel clusters and cashew snappers. Back on the list are chocolate covered marshmallows.
Candy can be purchased by the pound, in gift trays, or as customized gift baskets and treat bags.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The shop is closed on Sundays and Thanksgiving. Closing day is Dec. 23.
Volunteers from the Federation’s various clubs man the temporary shop. They sort and weigh the candy, assemble custom orders, and wait on walk-in customers.
Proceeds from the sale go toward the upkeep of the Federation’s home base, the Coover Club House on North Main Street.
The organization’s clubs are the Career Women’s Community Club, Coover Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, Delphians, Happy Hour Needle Club, London Bridge, TAC Bridge and the Twentieth Century Club.
