This sign was hung more than a few times at the Kanapaha Spring Garden Festival.
I begged to be let in to this show in 2005. Marion Sproul must have been having a bad day so she let me in. We brought flavors that best represented our business. And after that show I bet our customer base doubled. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens thank you for another wonderful show.

Gainesville community,

I asked for your business yesterday and you guys delivered. But more importantly you guys showed up with compassion and generosity for my son. As a father the events of Saturday night tore at my heart. So I felt like the only thing to do was to share this with my greater family -you guys- and try to make my kid whole again.
The pottery:
I have been impressed with Jack’s ability and drive to be a potter since he began. He pushes himself and teaches others at the studio. All of the pottery sold yesterday every piece that we put out. Thank you guys for buying his wares. Those of you from out of town that showed interest in his work, we are discussing him making pieces we can ship to you.
The ice cream:
I was not expecting the absolutely overwhelming response yesterday. I was hopeful, but you guys wowed me. I saw so many long term customers yesterday. I met regulars for the first time that really more associate Jack with the shop than me 🙂 I had a hard time speaking and thanking you for your business, mostly because I was fighting back tears of emotions behind my mask. Probably the first time I was grateful for having one on.

The gift cards:
Many people tried to press money into our hands yesterday. And I had a hard time expressing how Jack and I felt about this situation. I raised Jack in a business environment. We live through business and working. Yes he was a victim of a crime, but he wasn’t hurt. Nor were anyone else in our family. I told Jack “we can can make more money, you have pots to sell and I have ice cream. And you guys bought future ice cream in the form of gift cards. Thank you guys so much. Many of you said you would share them with other who haven’t been to Sweet Dreams yet. I can wait to meet our new regulars.

Why I posted yesterday:
I feel like I need to touch on this. First I now feel that the accepted terminology of “I got scammed” or “ they got scammed” is inaccurate. These people are victims of crimes. And some of them are elaborate crimes. We all have a love affair with technology until it is used against us. After this happens to someone they feel small and stupid. I personally know. I have also been the victim of scams. Yesterday MANY of you told me and more importantly Jack your stories about similar experiences. And I can’t tell you what a difference that made. Jack and I both really appreciated that from you all.

It’s been hard to write this post without tears. Thank you to all of you who came out and sent messages. You guys made us whole in more ways than one.

I truly don’t know of any other community like ours.
Love you guys
Mike Manfredi and family

Dear Sweet Dreams customers,
Tonight we were violated. Jack my son was working his shift alone when he received a phone call from GPD. The person on the phone explain to him that they had me in custody for depositing fraudulent bills and that he needed to transfer money to bail me out. They convinced him to take all of the money from the register and deposits and transfer it to money cards from CVS. BUT THE SUM WASN’T ENOUGH. When he asked to speak with me. They literally called him from my phone number ( somehow they spoofed my cell phone number and made it seem like they were calling from my phone. ) Jack was terrified that I was in some sort of trouble and transferred money from his own account to help me. All the while I was at a friends house enjoying a dinner. (I sometimes avoid taking my phone to social situations because work can distract me. ) I feel awful. Jack feels worse. He ended up emptying his entire bank account because he thought his father was in trouble. I know it’s just money. My son works hard at Sweet Dreams and at his job at the pottery studio. These fu***rs took advantage of a son trying to help his father. I’m absolutely sick about him losing his savings.
Tomorrow I am having an ice cream sale to try to make him whole. Please if you guys feel like coming out for ice cream, do. If you want to buy a piece of pottery made by Jack it will be available at Sweet Dreams. If you want to have me come to your neighborhood to sell ice cream- message me. If you would like to buy gift certificates I will honor our sale price- every 10.00 spent you get a free scoop. Our family doesn’t ask for handouts. I will sell our products. I am asking for your business. That all I can do as a father to try to make things right. Thank you for at least reading this.

Literally a conversation I had with an adorable child on Sunday while on the cool bus route. I wish I would have asked to take a picture of this child. It was in possum creek stop. If anyone know this family please ask for a pic in the shirt.

Me: that’s a cool shirt you have on. Do you like bugs?
Kid: thanks, these are all the beetles in the world! One of them rolls P**P!
ME: P**P! (I’m genuinely excited) Wow I think that’s cool!
Kid: I don’t. I think it’s gross.
Me: You are the most honest kid I ever met.
Kid: she said the same thing to me today.

The child was pointing to what I have to guess is the child’s grandmother. She was covering her face as she laughed.

We believe in supporting our community and local businesses. So when I read that Sweet Dreams of Gainesville FL. were the victim of a scam I wanted to do something to help them out. They won’t accept donations, but rather asked people to simply buy some ice cream. So we bought some gift cards. The first 50 people to mention Sweet Dreams when they buy a pizza will get $10 in gift cards. You can read their story on their page. Thanks for supporting our community and local businesses.
Please take a moment and read the following. If you love ice cream, please visit Sweet Dreams!
All setup and ready to go NOW in Sugarfoot!! We will be here till noon then off to Brywood. Come grab local citrus, gourmet mushrooms, lots of coffee, new honey and a handmade gift 🎁 🎄
