A Sweet Trip to Dylan's Candy Bar

I don't think I have taken you to Dylan's Candy Bar in a while, so let's go for a sweet ride! Dylan's is owned by Dylan Lauren, daughter of Ralph, and has been open in NYC at this location since 2001. Dylan's favorite movie was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (mine as well) and even had her wedding a "candy" theme!  
Lots to see here folks so let's get moving. Did you hear Hello Kitty is not a cat? I think that is rather silly, and love her anyway! Great items here, and I was so good not to purchase any!  
Adorable for the fall season, don't you think?  
Love the displays at Dylan's and it smells so great in this place!  
Everyone needs a pair of candy pants, no ?  
You can go crazy with the selection here, and we are only on the first floor!  
Love this !!  
More cute Halloween cookies!  
I was never a fan of the gummy candies, and with the selection here, that is a good thing!  
Is it possible to have a pretty skull cookie? Yes it is !!  
The bark candy is really good and she has so many various flavors.  
Never was a peep fan, but if you dip them in chocolate, I might be !  

Sriracha Chocolate Licorice - Hot stuff !  
Gee, I never saw so many pretty skulls in all my life! Too cute !  
We are heading downstairs now  
Lots of NYC items to take home to family and friends  
Okay, I LOVED these but kept my cool and did not purchase any of them  
Everyone needs chocolate iced doughnut earrings, don't they?  
So cute !!  
I really wish they would start making neat phone covers for the Samsung line. These are really sweet!  
You must have fudge in a candy shop! 
These cakes made out of candy would be fun at any party! 
How pretty is this one? 
Sorry for the blurry on this photo, but since I love Kit Kat, had to show you 
Looks like a wedding cake!! 
Chocolate covered pretzels are great but you add sprinkles and you have something really special !
The candy counter downstairs is pretty good, I must say
I am a big fan of coconut and these looked fabulous
How can you not choose an item here? Impossible! 
Homemade chocolate covered graham crackers are always better than store bought 
Of course they have a chocolate waterfall, makes perfect sense 
A really fun store 
I love popping in here every so often. They do sell online as well, but I hate to pay the shipping for the chocolate items. If you are a candy lover, I would say this is a must stop when in the city!!

Museum Store Shopping at it's Finest

I find that museum shops have the most fabulous items if you are looking for something unique. I am the type of person that does not like to have the same thing everyone else has. I like to be different. These shops allow you to find some of the most artful, inspiring, highly sophisticated products.

I had to start with one of my favorites, The Metropolitan Museum of Art store. I am in ♥ with these new earrings!!
Apple Blossom Hoop Earrings $100.00

Louis C Tiffany View of Oyster Bay with Soap $30.00

Russian Imperial Large Egg Christmas Ornament Set $60.00 

You will find some of the most unique gifts at the shop of MOMA, and they have a large selection online as well 
Toast It Coasters $10 

Mr. Morgan's Tea $9.95

Red Sox Baseball Cufflinks $168.00 

Blue Bow Bracelet 75.00 (British pounds) 

Wink Vase $54.50

Art Glass Pumpkin $40.00

Enchanted Tree Hand Puppet $48.00

Owl Pitcher $25.00

These are just a f r a c t i o n of what is out there, if you have a favorite museum, check online to see if they have a shop. Most of them do ship items outside of their areas, and I really rather have things shipped than have to carry them all day while traveling. If you are looking for items that are totally unique for yourself or a gift, museum shops are the way to go! 

What is your favorite museum?
