For those of you who can't take a drive and visit us, our apologies right up front for dangling the carrot you aren't allowed to eat.
But for those of you who can, come on down!
Nothing beats being able to actually smell 400 fragrance oils, making take home "sniffy sticks" for later reference. We provide the coffee beans to help clear your sniffer, and we can guide you to scents of the season, new releases and some deals on retiring fragrances. Bring along a candle or oil that you have been hunting for, with this many oils in stock, it's probably here under a different name. OR we can help suggest a mixing recipe.
If you are totally new to candle making, we are your resource centre. Free project sheets around the store are yours to take. The staff here are second to none, there is no such thing as a stupid question. We'd like to see you have success with your project right from the start, after all you are building something that you are going to set on fire!
We are open Saturdays! It can get a bit nuts in here, so if you can help us out by pre-ordering wax, glass and larger quantities before Friday it helps us a lot (and you wont forget the stuff you actually came for). Late spring through to the end of the year, the store is open on Sundays (check out our hours), but you might catch our junior staff members. They can point you in the right direction, but obviously they don't have 20 years experience like some of our regular staff do.
One customer commented that it's nice to be able to come to a shop that still has that "Mom and Pop" feel. So many businesses are moving to online only, but we would still like to think that people sell to people. Your visit here should leave you feeling that small town service is not a thing of the past.
At the front of the store, there is an abundance of products made with our supplies. We are not opposed to giving you the recipes! How cool is that?
If you do decide to BOPS (buy online pick up at.store), you can pay in person. This is also handy if you are sending someone to pick up in your place.
And there are treats in our safe if you can crack it open... we even supply the combination!
So put it on your list of things to do help celebrate Canada's150th ... bring the family and experience St. Marys and area. We have great trails, Canada's largest outdoor swimming pool, and we are home of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
See you soon!!!
