Plethora of candles

I had a really great time here spending about an hour browsing the many rooms filled with candles, jewelry, purses, all manner of bric-a-brac and knick knacks. The young lady who was working was very friendly, relaxed and smiling. We chatted for several minutes about several topics. I bought some soy candles, artsy totes, boot socks, and a child's craft...

The candle shop was nice and they had a great variety of candles for all seasons and holidays. There are other things in the shop such as soaps, scarves, jewelry, pillows, handbags, etc. We enjoyed walking through the shop but were extremely disappointed in the ghost tour in the basement of the house. We spent a lot of money on... More

Bought candles here a few years ago and drove an hour out of our way to get more. Great scents, good prices, and they last a long time. Not just candles.....unique gifts too.

We saw this shoppe on television for ghost monkeys and decided to check it out. There was so many things to look at and buy. They really did a marvelous job on this place! There is a ghost tour you can take but it wasn't available while we were there. You have to call to see the schedule. So many... More

We stopped in here based on reviews from Trip Advisor. Very cool stop and we were glad we did. We have never seen so many candles in such a variety of scents in different jars and done up as pies and muffins etc. Lots of great gift ideas in a span of prices. The upstairs was themed gifts for Christmas,... More

My mom and I drove to the Poconos from Michigan just to come here. We had seen it air on the animal planet. We were of course intrigued by the history, and by how adorable it looked. Well, it was so worth it. Super friendly staff. At first we were overwhelmed by how much was available in the shop but... More

Have to admit, I saw the episode on Animal Planet and since we were on vacation so close I had to stop. We did not do the haunted attraction in the basement. It looked pretty cheesy. But the store itself had a great assortment of candles and lots of unique other gifts. Prices were good. Definitely recommend if you are... More

Rooms and rooms of scented candles. The signs say that the candles are double scented which means they put twice as much fragrance in so that the aroma will last throughout. There are oodles of sizes and scents. Good gift items if you need something. The basement level is also a haunted attraction. We didn't try that.

An excellent spot for gifts for the grandkids or others. IT always is crowded but they have good values. A big parking lot and lots of help make this a good go to place here.
