<br />
The future is looking more than just a little sweet for a vintage sweet shop owner who is in the running to become Britain's Best Vintage Shop of the Year.<br />
<br />
The tiny shop is like a museum exhibiting confectionery from a bygone era. Walking in to Edward and Vintage in the village of Tissington, Derbyshire is like stepping out of a time machine that has traveled back sixty years.<br />
<br />
The shelves are stacked from floor to ceiling with glass jars full of sweets. Each jar has a handwritten label and every name ignites another childhood memory; Pear Drops, Rosy Apples, Lions Wine Gums and Sherbert Lemons are just a few of more than 350 different chunks of nostalgia being sold by the bag.<br />
<br />
It's not only the sweets, fudge and chocolates that are old fashioned. Everything in the shop helps to keep you believing you're in the 1940s - from an old wireless that plays Glen Miller, to the 1920s shop telephone and the antique till that still rings up the prices in old money.<br />
