Shop Spotlight: Sweet Afton's

Sweet Aftons at Gardner Village

In this old train station turned candy shop, you'll be greeted by the aroma of homemade fudge and three huge glass frames filled high with colorful jellybeans, full of numerous different flavors. Let your taste buds guide you through Sweet Afton's at Gardner Village to bushel baskets of foil-wrapped candy and soft salt water taffy, then past a hutch filled completely with licorices: salty buttons,licorice wheels, baby nibs and Dutch licorice. Free-standing cupboards are filled overflowing with all kinds of treats like drawers full of old-fashioned candy bars like Uno, Sky Bars and Rocky Road or pop rocks.

Though the candy shop feels like you're in mom's kitchen, no one will stop you from reaching into the drawers and picking whatever your sweet tooth craves. Find shelves lined with old-fashioned drinks like Bubble-up. Fill your bag with 12 colors of Sixlets or 48 flavors of Jelly Belly jelly beans, chocolate-covered sunflower seeds, gummy bears in all colors of the rainbow, jawbreakers, chocolate-toffee covered almonds and many varieties of sugar-free candy too.

Don't leave without a package of homemade fudge. Try the salted nut roll: caramel, peanut butter and salty peanuts rolled into vanilla fudge, or chocolate explosion with raisins and nuts, the raisin rum. The chewy praline with caramel and sugared pecans or the mint Oreo, Butterfinger or cookie dough fudges are also yummy. Try the chocolate covered pretzels or in the Fall fresh carameled granny smith apples.
Whatever your cravings, Sweet Afton's in West Jordan, Utah just outside Salt Lake City has the perfect treat for you.

Shop Spotlight: Upon the Shelf

Upon the Shelf at Gardner Village

Buy what's on the shelf, and the shelf itself at Upon the Shelf at Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah just outside Salt Lake City. Choose from home accessories or order a shelf custom-made to your dimensions and color preferences: sleek cherry wood, distressed black, a rough-textured European look, antique green or embossed metal. Now, let the owners help you fill your shelves with groupings of decor. 

First, find an item you love, like a pair of ornate candlesticks. Next, add something soft like a fabric throw, then something tall like a floral arrangement. Balance it out with something short, like a metal tray. Put it all together and watch this shelf arrangement dress-up your home. Choose a wreath or one in a cluster of weathered tin pots hanging from the open rafters above the register. This shop holds any shelf imaginable. Hutch drawers are pulled open and filled with picture frames, clocks, antique wrought iron fixtures and accessories to dress-up any wall space.
