Candle Fan Mecca - Williamsburg
Yankee Candle Shop: Candle Fan Mecca

Yanke Candle Company has recently (November 2005) opened a 50,000 square foot emproium of Yankee Candle products. Upon entering the building, you look up to see that the ceiling of the entire building is painted as a beautiful summer sky. The store has several depatments including candles, accessories, dishes, etc...

Kids--and adults for that matter--can make their own Yankee Candles. With some supervision, you can do the wick dipping yourself to create and candle you can take home as a keep-sake.

If you are a bargain shopper, you wikll enjoy this store. We purchased several of the "Jar" candles for 50% off, which is unheard of for Yankee. You can also find all the hard to find discontinued scents.

If you are a Yankee Candle fan, you cannot, I repeat CANNOT miss this store.

What to buy: Candles

What to pay: Less than normal

Address: 2200 Richmond Rd. 23185

Directions: Richmond Rd, heading north out of town, you will see the store on the Left after passing the Red Lobster and Ruby Teusday's.

Phone: 877-616-6510
