of Barneyís Gas Cheryl had heard many stories from local families, about Barney's
and Papaís Place. Both were Candy Shops in the Millbrook area of Duxbury
that had made enough of an impression on the residents that everyone still talks
about their childhood memories of buying candy. Cherylís vision was to
bring those memories back to life for the current children of Duxbury and so
Sweet Treats was born.
Judy Hickey raised four children in the Millbrook area of Duxbury. She
often thought a Penny Candy store would be a great addition to the business
area. When Cheryl mentioned her idea for a candy shop in a nearby historic
building, she jumped at the chance to help.
Today Sweet Treats is located in the old grain store of Goodrich Lumber.
There are many reminders of itís past. There is an old door that
hangs on the wall, the current candy counter was brought over from the old lumber
yard. Residents come in and recall how they used to play on piles of grain
sacks where the fudge is now located, and that the train used to pass between
our building and the one next door. Cheryl and Judy love hearing
people reminisce about Duxbury years ago.
