Candles were a necessity of daily life in the Victorian Era, as there was no electricity. Scented candles were often used in funeral ceremonies along with flowers, as they masked any unpleasant odours that may have lingered during a 'wake.' Thankfully, today, we do have electricity and use candles to create ambiance to our spaces. We have chosen to work with a local company that creates soy based candles for your enjoyment. These candles are derived from natural ingredients, burn clean (no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants), and made with cotton wicks. We carry a year round 'Signature Series' & 'Seasonal Scents.' Did we mention that our 8oz. candles burn for 50-60 hours?!

All of their products are handmade &/or hand finished, 80% of which is cast iron/steel, along with some brass, wood, tin and leather. You can expect that slight imperfections and little quirks appear her and there which is somewhat by design, in fact, to retain "the old style, vintage look," exactly as intended.

Dickey Bee Honey Products
We are thrilled to offer 'Dickey Bee' award winning local honey here in our store!
The earliest sweet was, of course honey, which people have eaten since prehistoric times. Honey is nature’s unrefined sweetener and is produced by the bees from the nectar of flowers. Honey contains important vitamins and nutrients such as Vitamin A, B, C, D and K along with niacin, riboflavin, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Honey also contains flavonoids and phenolic acids which act as antioxidants that keep bad bacteria away.
