The company is perhaps best known for its Easter candy. Beginning in late December and early January each year, the staff begins working on the production of Easter eggs. During peak production, the company can produce 80,000 eggs per day.
In about 1950, the candy making operation was relocated to a new building at 921 Baker Street in Lewisburg. The building was located on the site of the Lewisburg Brewery. In August 1951, Chris A. Papas retired. His daughter, Katherine Papas Hartmann took over the operation of Lily’s. His son, Alex, took over the wholesale business on Baker Street which he named Chris A. Papas and Sons. Papas and Sons quickly became know for its dark chocolate Easter eggs, opera creams and marshmallow eggs.

A candy store/soda fountain you can’t loaf in. Sounds delightful.
The calendar in the background says April, 1925.
I like how Mary stands under her name.
My grandmother used to write the names of those in a photo near the photo’s borders, draw a line from their name to the person’s head, and then circle their head. We have decades of ruined family photos, but we know who’s in them.
Maybe they’re just really lazy?
The date behind Pearls head says April 1925. Love those twisted wire stools.
