Mother/Daughter owned since late 2013, Sweet Things is Ste. Genevieve’s only candy, toy, and book store! Offering a wide variety of decadent chocolates, nostalgic candies, novelty candies, children’s books, toys for babies, toddlers, and children 10 and under, plus adult humor gifts, socks, and more– it’s easy to see why people have loved shopping here since it was first founded in 1985.
