Kringle Candle is one of my mother's favorite spot to visit when she is up here in Massachusetts.
Started by James Kittredge III and Mike Kittredge (Orginal owner of Yankee Cadle). I love the story of how Kringle Candle came to light. The story can be found here: http://inside.kringlecandle.com/about-kringle
We decided to check it out this past weekend to experience for ourselves. Started by James Kittredge III and his father Mike Kittredge (the original founder of Yankee Candle)
As you arrive at Kringle Candle on one side of the street is the Retail Store, the opposite side of the street hosts The Country Barn, The Chocolate Cottage, and The Farm Table.
We arrived shortly after opening, and the rain seemed to be keeping the crowds away. Which made for a great blogging visit. Bella was in charge of photography this time around, with a little help from John.
As we entered the retail shop, we were welcomed by one of the sweetest ladies Barb. I really regret not asking for her photo with the kids, she was so sweet. Once she learned we had never been, she told us all about the store. Highlighting the sale items (which we all know is my favorite) and where they can be found. The time she took to welcome us and make sure we knew where we could find everything was such a fantastic personal touch. It added to the charm of the store. Filled with every candle scent you can imagine, everyone was having fun finding their favorite scent. Being allergic to candles I was beyond surprised to find the store was scent free and filled with unique gifts.
The Country Barn is three floors of fun and has something for everyone. The first floor is filled with cooking oils, gourmet food, fudge, loose tea and so much more. The samples were the kids favorite. Everywhere we turned there was pretzels or animal crackers for guests to try the spreads, syrups, oils and more.
The top floor has a cute Christmas shop, decorations for the home, women's wear, jewelry, bath and body products, and so much more. The soaps are so pretty I would almost be afraid to use them. The store has such great unique gifts we definitely will be returning for teacher's gifts this year.
The basement was the kids dream.. you guessed it TOYS. From wind-up toys, puppets, stuffed friends, and more. If you need a different gift for a special little one this is the store for you.
Sadly, we missed the Chocolate Cottage and The Farm table. however, we plan on returning soon.
