This place was here in the 70's, we've been visiting since the 80s. They used to have people there making the layered candles and they usually didn't last that long on the shelf.

You will find so many things here, that you just can't resist spending more than you should.

Stop by... More

The barrels of candy are wonderful-fresh and good. It is fun looking at their huge selections of candy, gifts, decor, candles, etc. You can always find something different to buy.

Candles, gifts and candy galore. Reasonably priced. Enjoyed looking around and did some gift shopping as well.

We really liked this place. It's larger than it looks in the photo... lots of various things, and a unique candy section with old time candy and fudge. We purchased a lot of things... but it is pricey. Cute place. I'd go again

This place looks small and its huge. It has other items than candles. The candles smell great. Very helpful people and the prices were affordable.
