Welcome to our site for our little shop called Mint!

Mint is a traditional sweet & toy shop located at 10 Northgate in Oakham.

We hope to recreate a bygone era not only by giving individual attention and superior customer service, but by offering mouth-watering sweets suitable for young and old, the majority of which are hand-made in copper pans for the fullest flavour. These delectable delights are available as weigh-out sweets for nibbling or beautifully packaged in gift bags, sweetie cones or small and large jars for those special occasions, such as birthdays and weddings. Mint is also very proud to offer a range of Hope and Greenwood and Charbonnel and Walker chocolate, fudge and nuts for extra special gift giving.

Mint also offers a fabulous range of wooden and classic toys ranging from pirate ships to dolls houses, tea sets and pocket money toys including yoyos, kazoos and character pens and pencils. Party or gift bags can be made to order and are available at prices which offer savings when combining special surprises from the toy and sweet lines.

Mint hopes that its customers will enjoy recapturing the innocence of the past and that parents and children in Oakham and the surrounding area will delight in the 'real' sweets and toys on offer. The toys will last a lifetime (although the sweets will go quite quickly)! Both will provide treasured memories that will last long after a trip to our shop.

The vast array of sweets and toys means that there is something in Mint to suit all budgets.
