(via America’s Oldest Sweet Shop Gets a Hipster Makeover | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian Magazine)

Ryan Berley and his 32-year-old brother, Eric, recently bought and restored Shane’s, the oldest continuously operated candy shop in America. The Philadelphia landmark, a couple of blocks from where in 1732 Benjamin Franklin printed the first Poor Richard’s Almanack, has been turning out sweets since 1863.
