Then you fil the mold with pieces of broken colored wax. You then select a scent and they fil the mold (the gaps between the broken pieces... More

We've been going to Lake George for almost 20 years and just noticed this shop on the side street. Definitely worth stopping in. We took our kids and they each made a candle. They both said it was the best part of our long weekend in Lake George.

We have 3 boys ages 14, 9, and 2. They were incredibly kid friendly and accommodating (especially with our youngest). Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Kids had a blast - even our teenager, which is a tall task. This was our second year in a row stopping by here to make candles on our vacation - we definitely will do it again,... More

Great craft time for the kids and I. Wanted to try something different aside from being in the sun, going to an arcade and this was a perfect thing to do which didn't take long (an hour or so). You choose your candle shape and size, scent, your candle colors and just spend time together at table cutting up wax... More

It's a yearly tradition to make candles here on vacation. They make unique souvenirs with a handmade touch! There is step by step instruction, its easy and fun! Make candles and give as gifts to teachers, bus drivers...etc! Stop in and see how easy, fun and inexpensive it is!

The staff (owners) are friendly, welcoming and amazing. We happened to stay in town and decided to check this place out and I have to say it's outstanding. They have tons of molds to chose from and and different scents including bacon! The process of making the candle was fun and the hosts will guide you through the process. If... More

Great prices the owner goes above and beyond and it's a perfect keepsake activity for families of all ages. For two candles it was less than $16 (or course sizes vary) and the kids got to choose all their own custom colors and scents!

I found this business on trip advisor and thought it would be a good activity for my young daughter and I to do. I called ahead to check for hours and the owner informed me she would return in the evening and offered to call me when she came back. She called before promised and we had a great time... More
