Did You Know?
"When my now 11 year old daughter was a toddler, she loved going in your Topsham store - and thought every time you gave her a sample votive it was magic to her - we loved walking thru there - and when family would visit from far away, she would always say we have to take them to the candles. You all hold so many wonderful memories."

"I was house hunting in Rhode Island and smelled the most wonderful scent I've ever smelled. I found out the scent was called Mulled Cider and went on a mission to find it. I'll go anywhere to get that candle, and I want to thank you for making such a wonderful scent. It'll always remind me of my hometown in Texas during the holidays."
