We visited both the outlet store and the gift shop. The prices in the outlet store are about half of what they are in the gift shop, and the candles are fine--just minor blemishes. I mean, you're going to burn it anyway, right? The upstairs of the gift shop was getting decorated for Christmas, and I can only imagine what it will look like when they are done. Beautiful old buildings and very nice staff. The gift shop also has a little cafe and lots of gourmet food items that are yummy. Definitely worth a visit to Medina.
