Stopped in to check out the sales. Store was laid out nicely. You could create your own candles. If you like candles would highly recommend this shop.

There are lots of candles and the prices are very reasonable. We even did our holiday shopping for the next three seasons! Stop here if you are in a planning mood for the holidays.

If heaven was a store.... it would be this one. We spent probably two hours in here and couldn't get enough. Do yourself a favor and go while you are in Williamsburg! You will not regret it!

It's a retail store. No big bargains... There's a large Christmas themed room where artificial "snow" or tiny bubble clusters are generated in a pretty setting. Have fun!
