LOVED IT!

This store was like a wonderland for candle lovers! My teenage kids were even enjoying themselves walking around. And I think the best part was seeing SANTA.

The first time I visited here, I was skeptical because I had my pick of Yankee Candles MUCH closer to my house. Why travel an hour to get to this one? I remember walking in and was immediately overcome and flooded with holiday memories from my childhood. It's like a little mini Christmas town within Williamsburg. There is so much... More

This was my first visit to this place. I was actually reluctant to go in as I really did not want the 1000 different candle scents to explode on my nose. But I was amazed that this place had a little of everything. The candle making was great. kids did the ole dippity do thing. The say Santa in another... More

Stopping by the Yankee Candle store was a very pleasant surprise! Honestly, I was stunned by the massive interior of the store! This really is more than just a shop, it is an ATTRACTION! Inside the store, there are many different settings. It is like a mini world! The Christmas area was amazing and the amount of work put into... More

First, let me start by saying I love Yankee candle. With that said, this place is awesome! It's one of two flagship stores. A bucket list item of mine for years has been to visit the flagship store in Michigan. Came upon this location in Williamsburg by accident. So glad we did. This place was fabulous. I was there during... More

This place has a little bit of everything for the kids, the Mom, and the Dad. The kids love to make their own candles, or wax a form of their hand...and fill their bag with candy. I highly recommend this as a place to stop by when the weather outside is too hot, or rainy...it's a place you can blow... More

This is a great place to spend at least 1-2 hours in and even better on a rainy day. You would think that this store only carries candles, well you are in for a shock, not just a surprise. You enter in where all the candles are on display, and then you branch off to so many other little stores... More

This was quite an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours in summer heat. The children in our group enjoyed making wax critters and watching the snow, while the adult enjoyed wandering through all the different shops. Large selection of toys, puzzles, Christmas ornaments, home decor and jewelry. Plenty to look at for everyone!

They had a huge sale which was awesome. Every candle that you could think of and more. My sisters had to text me to find out where I was because the store was so huge.
