This was a flagship store and was incredible. We spent several hours in there and could have spent more. They had a great clearance section and sales as well. The Christmas section was fun for both young and old.

I am probably a rare person, but I haven't really been impressed with the overly priced Yankee Candle line. It was recommended by a friend to check this place out however and my husband learned of the candy store, so we added it to our things to do in Williamsburg. I'm so glad we went.

From the bear clock to the sky painted ceilings, this flagship store is a must see! There is so much to buy here and there are hidden stores within the store that sell candy, to Vera Bradley to Christmas ornaments to housewares..... Great shopping and wonderful selection!!!

This is one of those places we will always go to on any visit to Williamsburg. We like to take our kiddos to Great Wolf Lodge and this is an activity we never pass up.

On our family trip of 10 with ages ranging from 11-65, this was a cool place to spend an afternoon. We were here just after Christmas and it was a great time to enjoy all of the beautiful decorations.

Our kids got to make their own candle. We are sure to stop at this place when we visit Williamsburg! I love it and so do the kids.
