The congenial owners make and sell everything in their store except for the soap (a friend makes it). The candles are beautifully carved right in front of you as the artist explains the technique. Fascinating. Beautiful. Go take a candle home for yourself. They last...More

A little candles shop in Blowing Rock. You might miss it, but look for it. It has a large selection of hand dipped carved candles. You might caught them carving candles; very interesting thing to see. They are very friendly.

We stopped in at this shop to see the owner making candles. Each one is handmade and a one of a kind. Beautiful just to keep on display but can also be lit and used as candle. Very decorative! Could not resist buying for myself...More
