As soon as we find out someone is a [slightly obsessive] candy-making expert, we’re happy. And isn’t this timely? Right here in OC, a candy cane maker lives among us! You could call Robin Reichelt an overachiever [perfect]. She is a full-time consultant to giant food brands, she creates pottery and three months out of the year, she smells like candy canes.
At her nostalgia-filled site, you can get a feel for her mission to revive old school-style holiday spirit. Robin hand makes peppermint candy garlands for your home or Christmas tree. With an old fashioned candy cane recipe and a traditional copper kettle, she creates peppermint “doodles” that can be linked together to form a garland, or candy chain. She sells garland in boxed trays, and a box holds 7 feet of candy chain! In keeping with the “retro” spirit, each garland is packed on a reproduction of a vintage holiday card. Each box costs $45. Free delivery in OC.
Is bigger or smaller better? The Miniature Show, an exhibit of very small proportion at Art Cube Gallery in Laguna Beach, debuts at First Thursday Art Walk from 6 to 9 p.m. and runs through December.

Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The Art Cube Gallery is at 266 Forest Ave. in Laguna Beach. 949.376.8800. Admission is free.
