Cheyenne Candy Store Emporium

Tucked in the heart of Cheyenne, Wyoming is a startlingly authentic 1950s candy counter. Leave it to Dan to discover something as marvelous as the Cheyenne Candy Store Emporium

The shop made me miss the collection of Coca-Cola merchandise my dad used to collect as a hobby.

As we were leaving, I asked the proprietor if I could snap a picture of him — it’s clear from his apron and Snidely Whiplash mustache that he’s an active part of the kitsch. “Should I hold the phone?”

He is currently working on recreating a Woolworth’s lunch counter — some authentic cardboard artwork had shown up just that morning.

Hello, gorgeous.
