Grandma was looking for some new scents, and we were here in Williamsburg, so we decided to stop in. It is a great atmosphere with a room that put out artificial snow from the ceiling, so that way it is always Christmas here! Good candles and a lot of different foods, too!

Shopped here on a rain day to get sme candles. Make sure you have coupons. We had the buy 2 get 2 more free. We purchased candles and a holder for Christmas time.

The store was beautiful and I would have enjoyed looking around more but Santa was there and the store was packed with people in line and very excited children.

This store is Awesome. From every candle you could want in every scent. Gifts for very one on your list. The Fudge and Peanut shops were great. The Christmas room was so cool, the setting was night time, and then it started to snow. The Black Friday special was out of this world. The Yankee Store was the best decorated... More

Love this place, something for everyone. I love the villages and gargoyles and the candle selection is so big it is hard to choose your favorite. There is light food and drink inside. Grab a carriage and be prepared for lots of company.

Not just a candle store - plan to spend plenty of time just walking around! Yes, it's overwhelming so just start in one end & Leto on moving. The honor all your coupons plus the deal are great!
