Look for Candles at Thrift Stores

Thrift Shops can be a good source for candles! I am burning up my stock over the holidays and snagged some decorative ones in my thrift shop wanderings, good ones, too.


The tapers may be slightly damaged, used or, in my case, a bit melted out of shape at the top - but those are problems easily fixed with trimming. And I got 6 brand new good red hand dipped candles for about $2. The better candles do burn better. (Tea lights can be a good deal at the 99 cent store and elsewhere - look out for them.)

I think it's important to be careful about the kinds of candles you buy. I've started to switch over to soy candles and also beeswax ones. You can find cool ones at your local farmers markets or online. I like to get mine at the farmers markets because they are all natural and it's cool to support the community.
