The owner Jim was friendly and extremely engaging throughout our time in his store. We had a great time chopping wax squares into small pieces, and putting them into the mold that we had chosen. We love our finished product.

The owner, Jim, was a terrific host. Very engaging. Making your own candle was fun. You pick which candle shape, pick your colors, & after owner does the wax part, in about 20 minutes you have a candle that you made. Prices are so reasonable,...More
