I have been a fan of their candles for quite a wile - they burn cleanly and the colors and scents are just BEYOND beautiful! The new retail shop is worth the ferry ride from Bayfield alone-it's right across the street from the dock. I...More

From the walkway through the gardens, one enters a beautifully appointed shop that invites you to experience these unique and wonderfully scented candles. Browse through the various sizes from the votives to the travel size and on through the pillars. The friendly staff invites you...More

We've bought several of these and they smell terrific. Ripe Apple is my favorite. These are not overpowering like other brands. Love the yellow flicker logo for Madeline Island. Can't wait Til new location opens.
