Debbie Sinclair remembers maple nut candy from Nell's Variety

Debbie Sinclair writes:
As a child my mom would give me 25 cents to $1.00 for some maple nut goodies and Mr. Nell would always give really good (extra) measure if no one was looking! I never knew how hard my sweet mama had worked for that money at the Fruit of the Loom. I could never make the candy last very long and it sure was a long two weeks till she got paid again and I could again make the walk around the Square to get my candy. - Debbie Sinclair
