On our way home from leaving Little Bluebird in Virginia for graduate school, we happened upon an awesome shop off the freeway in Centerville, Indiana - about an hour south of Indianapolis on I-70 and just across the Ohio border. Apparently, on the way TO Virginia, yours truly was asleep and missed all of the signs leading up to this gem of a place. Much wiser on the return trip (due to a slip of the tongue by Mr. Bluebird, lol), I was wide eyed and ready to roll once we made it to Centerville.
And there it was, a ginormous candle - a beacon for the traveler - and the iconic symbol of the Warm Glow Candle Company! It is 11,000 square feet of "scentsory" overload.
Tons of realistic faux florals.
Cute displays were everywhere. Here is a massive area of candle rings.
Of course, amidst all of the home decor were the stars of the show - the yummy scented candles.
There is even a selection of specialty wines.
And of course, chocolate and wine are perfect companions!
Look at the size of the candle on the top shelf - huge! I regret not picking one of those up to bring home now.... sigh.
If you get hungry while you are shopping, there is a cute little cafe right inside with all kinds of treats.
Candles are one of my downfalls, so I showed great restraint at this store. I picked up two candles (Apple Cinnamon & Banana Nut Bread) and a big bag of Cinnamon Bun scented rosehip. I paid about $44.00 for all three items, which is a really great price.
The Warm Glow Candle company has a huge scent selection, many of which can be ordered on line. I am still thinking about the huge Cinnamon Fried Ice Cream candle I left behind and may be placing an order soon! The candles I did choose are also quite large, weighing in at two pounds and boasting 150 hours of glow time. I am saving them for September, when I get the fall harvest bug!
I am so glad Mr. Bluebird spilled the beans about this super neat store and that we were passing by during their operating hours (9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every day).
How about you? Have you happened upon any great shopping spots lately?
Thanks for stopping by,
