Our Favorite Fall Candles

Our Favorite Fall Candles

    Who doesn't love Fall? It is absolutely the most beautiful time of the year. Between high school football games, bonfires, the fair, and pumpkin patches, we are certainly busy this time of year.     Have you noticed that there are either "Pumpkin People" or "Apple People"?

It was hard for me to choose a candle to feature on our first blog post-- we have so many great ones!

It leaves the air with a wonderful scent that is similar to the of Juicy Fruit gum. Many of our customers have told...
