Country Home Candles

New vendor Country Home Candles has a real 'country background.  After a few years in the city, proprietor Karen Northgraves, moved back to her country roots and opened clothing/gift stores.  She was inspired to manufacture candles to sell in her store in Norfolk County (my parents lived there too Karen!) twenty years ago.  From here, a wholesale business began, and Country Home Candles were being sold in other independently owned stores in other small towns.  Country Home Candles now sells to thousands of stores worldwide.

Country Home Candles is featuring a Mothers' Day gift set on their site now, as well as many other unique products.  I am thinking something for the bathroom might be nice - to go with that Mothers' Day soak I am planning after breakfast in bed of course).  If you have a minute, check out this great success story, another fine local find.
