Even Bad Publicity is a good thing

Sorry for the span between posts but if I don't have anything interesting to write I don't.

But here is an interesting story. About a month or so ago in Synagogue a gentleman came up to me and said something to the effect of " I was watching PBS the other night and all of a sudden your store was on the screen I was so excited for you did you know about it?

I answered honestly that I had no idea what he was talking about, but he went on to tell others about it which was great.

Then a few weeks later he called my Dad who called me to say the show was about to be rerun.

So I called a friend with a DVR and asked her to record it for me.

Here is how bad publicity is even good.

The show was "Architect Michael Grave a Grand Tour", sound good right.

In theory yes were people talking about it yes but when the show was talking about the form of architecture used to design the strip mail we are in right as they showed my store the narrator referred to this form as a joke?


So tell me is our store a facade a joke? Perhaps before we branded it.

Not sure but at least people were talking about our store.

So even bad publicity is good when it comes to the life of the candy man.

Have a sweet day!


  1. I might get a hold of whoever made that film and demand that they remove my business as their example of a joke. That is lousy to do to someone, especially without their permission. I am not a fan of strip mall architecture, but realistically, that is what a lot of communities have. Your shop is cute from the outside and so much better than just a generic sign on the front. Found your blog from the giveaway at The Domestic Geek.

  2. I love your store front, it looks great and inviting for customers with a sweet tooth
