Somebody Help This Poor Girl: Soda Pop in Dallas

Reader is looking for a place to buy retro sodas and candy. Do you have a suggestion?

This email brought back memories of Hamilton Rousseau, the quirky owner of Ifs Ands & Butts in Bishop Arts. Rousseau’s special tobacco and soda pop shop opened in 1996, long before the funky neighbors moved in. Sadly, Rousseau passed away in 2008.

If Ands & Butts would have been the perfect answer to this gal’s question.

Hey, Nancy. I want to do a retro party for my husband’s 60th birthday. Is there a place I can find old sodas like Grapette in the old bottles and other nostalgic drinks and candies? Could you ask your readers to help this poor girl!
