Frank Ellis left Silicone Valley after working as part of the Amazon Kindle team. Exhausted and ready for a new adventure, he and his wife Pam moved to Tempe and decided what Mill Avenue really needed was a place to buy specialty candy -- including the regional, retro, novelty and hard-to-find stuff.

Now if Mill Avenue only still had a multi-plex, first-run movie theater. Sigh.

Not to nitpick, but silicone is what's in breast implants... silicon is the eponymous element of California tech valley fame.


Yay! Wish I were there! Frank and Pam are the best and anyone shopping at their store is in for a treat-literally!-Michelle Cortez, California
