Ranked #2 of 23 Shopping in St. Michaels

Attraction details
Owner description: This is a great shop on the eastern shore, having won the most unique gift shop on the eastern shore by What's Up Magazine. It is a very eclectic shop with something for everyone from a Kid's room with childrens & baby clothing and unique toys and books not found in your big box stores. When you walk into the shop you will find an extensive selection of signs with the ability to custom signs as well as wine glasses, pottery, coasters, and more. The shop is stocked with Woodwick candles, Jim Shore, Willow tree, homemade soaps and candles, wine accessories, and of course what would a shop on the eastern shore be if they didn't sell crab glasses, trays, wine bottle stoppers, napkins, towels and more. A great shop for eveyone in the family with prices unheard of in St. Michaels!

We ended up in St Michael's for a few hours after we decided to experience the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel on our way home to Pittsburgh. We visited all the stores on the street and the Candleberry Shoppe was the gem. We picked up souveniers with a nautical theme, and got directions to the best place to eat lunch and to the winery in St Michael's (didn't know there was one!). We bought a gift for our daughter in Florida, and Marianne was happy to ship it for us. She and Stan treated us like family. And, during the entire time we were at their shop, Stan never failed to ask the customers if they were active or retired military, and then thank them for their service.
Great little store and we plan to return.

Thanks for stopping in, we seem to have more and more customers stopping in from Pittsburgh which please Stanley since he is an avid Steelers Fan! Look forward to seeing you again on your way back through next time.

Candleberry is a gem! Great selection with unique finds! Sure beats some of the "cookie cutter" shops that seem to carry the same items as everyone else!

Shop owners went out of their way to help us select a gift item for a hard to buy for pesrson. Was even able to have it shipped!

Shop is well organized and kid friendly. With items priced for kids to shop to!

A MUST stop shop when visiting!

The Candleberry Shoppe in St Michaels, MD is a fabulous, must see shop. Very friendly staff and the most unique gifts around. If you are even CLOSE to St Michaels, this is a shop you don't want to miss.

I am a local who frequents this shop. Marianne and Stan are great shop owners, wonderful personalities and very welcoming. They have items from all price points so everyone can buy something in their budget and our little princess (5 yr old) loves shopping there!
Stop in and visit- Stan will put a smile on your face with all his wonderful stories!
