Explore a candle shop filled with wax sculptures fashioned into biblical and contemporary scenes. If you're lucky, you'll witness the artists twisting candles into elaborate creations.

great selection of locally made candles - decorative and functional. Don't miss the awesome wax/candle sculptures. Noah's Ark was my favorite.
