Awesome store that had something for the entire family. Never experienced a store like this which made it that much more enjoyable. We entered just to check it out but ended up being in the store for almost 2 hours. Candle making for the kids was super fun! Do not miss this place if you are in the area!

This is one of their large flagship stores. One could spend hours here. Gifts galore and special prices on just about everything. Santa is there all year long and it even snows inside their Christmas Village.

Yes, I know it's Yankee Candle and that for some reason, people like to pay through the teeth for this stuff, but I can't understand why. Having said that, this location is a very nice place to visit even if you're not interested in buying. The Christmas section alone made our 8 year old daughter happy as can be. The... More

Wow, we couldn't believe how big this place is. It will take you a few minutes to go through the entire store. If you have kids, take time to either make a hand candle which takes about 20 minutes or make a homemade candle.

Stop by this place! Even if your not buying anything. Tour all the different themed rooms. Watch the clock show with the kids, write a letter to Santa, or even get snowed on in the Christmas Area!

We stopped in here over the holiday week. Great place. A large selection of yankee candles and items, bulk candies, Vera Bradley store, Christmas Store, Toy Store, homemade popcorn etc. just a great place to explore.

We were "killing time" one night on vacation and stopped in for awhile. Stayed until they closed and still wanted more. My son made a hand dip and my daughter made a jar candle. Me and my wife dipped candles. All in all it is worth the trip to stop by.

This is not your average Yankee Candle. This flagship store has a little bit of everything. On the left side of the building you will find the best stock of Vera Bradley in the area, as well as similar accessories that are not Vera Bradley. Towards the back of that area there are home decorations, then a section that has... More

My daughter and I wanted to go to this outlet on a recent trip to Williamsburg and had allowed a morning for this. Fun to see and many different types of good such as home accessories, purses, Dept 52 villages, plus good discount prices on candles. A good stop if you need a history break!
