Sweet Peace opens new Edmond location

EDMOND — Patty Wilton built her business around candy and creativity. Using treats from Snickers and sodas to the finest gourmet chocolates and candies, Wilton creates custom candy bouquets that have earned smiles from kindergarten classrooms to corporate boardrooms.

Now in its third year, Sweet Peace, which specializes in candy bouquets and Peace Frogs apparel, has opened a new Edmond location at 16317 N. Santa Fe Ave., Suite F.

Sweet Peace offers custom candy bouquets ranging from small designs with Hershey bars to elaborate creations with exotic treats from across the world.

“Our candy bouquets are a delicious idea for all occasions,” Wilton said. “We can create a customized bouquet that includes any mixture of candy, popcorn, nuts and even small gift items if desired.”

For last minute gifting, Sweet Peace stocks a wide selection of ready-made bouquets for any holiday or occasion, from Halloween and Christmas to birthdays and anniversaries.

Wilton also offers a corporate gifting service, building custom bouquets around any company’s marketing and promotional items. Wilton can even put corporate logos on the candy wrappers themselves.

“We can build a candy bouquet around just about any small item,” Wilton said. “Whether it’s a corporate or personal gift, our bouquets can be individualized to meet any need.”

All Sweet Peace bouquets are hand-crafted in the store. Wilton also offers sugar-free varieties. Sweet Peace will deliver the bouquets free within Edmond.

For those who remember penny candy, the store is a place where kids and adults can still satisfy a candy craving with only a little pocket change. In addition to custom bouquets, Wilton stocks a variety of unique and retro candies including rock candy, salt water taffy, candy lipstick, Charms, Zotz and Turkish Taffy.

“Candy is not just for kids,” she said. “It’s fun to watch an adult’s face light up when they find a favorite treat from their childhood on our shelves. Children love our store too because we offer so many different candies and sell them by the individual piece. Kids come in to buy candy with the quarters they find between the couch cushions.”

Wilton also carries a full line of Peace Frogs apparel and accessories.

Sweet Peace is in the Santa Fe Square Shopping Center on the southwest corner of 15th Street and Santa Fe, west of Crest Foods. Sweet Peace is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • psc 1.jpg City likely to borrow less for PSC due to sky-high tax revenue

    During his State of the City Address Edmond Mayor Charles Lamb made a political announcement — he’s planning on running again for the office.
    Lamb made the comments in the question-and-answer session of his presentation during an Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon at Rose Creek Golf Course, 17031 N. May Ave.
    Mayor pro tem from 2005-2011, Lamb was elected mayor last year. His long record of service in Edmond includes serving on the City Council from 1993 to 2011.
    The question about if he will run again came from the audience. Lamb alluded to his desire to be around when the Public Safety Center is finished, which will be in the fall of 2015; the next mayoral election will be in the spring of 2015.

  • Dr. Fielding’s variance denied by close vote

    Reverse-angle parking will continue at the 13 N. University Drive office of Dr. Brad Fielding. The Edmond City Council rejected a variance request by the local optometrist to end the city’s pilot project in front of his medical facility.
    Councilman Nick Massey and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell supported Fielding’s variance request that was dismissed in a 3-2 vote.
    Four parking lines were striped late last year at Fielding’s business after the city opened new bicycle lanes along University. The city cites the safety for bicyclists and motorists who traditionally depart while backing into traffic as the main reasons for introducing reverse-angle parking.

  • jc_TOUCH THE CLOUDS.jpg OSBI grounds voted locale for new sculpture

    City staff is working toward an agreement with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Lab to place the “Touch the Clouds” bronze sculpture on the OSBI grounds on Second Street. The City of Edmond would retain ownership of the artwork.
    The Edmond City Council voted 4-1 this week to allow city staff to negotiate the agreement as soon as possible. Mayor Charles Lamb voted against pursuing the agreement.
    City Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell said she was initially interested in placing the sculpture near the Smith House because of it’s proximity to state Highway 66.

  • Watch China for the next economic trigger

    For my male readers out there, remember back to your teens and 20s when one of the primary goals was getting a date and finding a girlfriend? Oh come on! You can admit it.  Well imagine how it would have complicated matters if no woman would give you a second thought if you didn’t own property. No, not that old beat up car you drove and sometimes slept in. I mean real property, as in a house.
