The Waxen Moon

Waxen Moon is an unusual shop where you can either buy pre-made candles or you can make your own.

A few friends and I were feeling crafty one day so we tried our hand at making some candles. Its fun -- you get to choose a scent, color, size, shape, and finish of your candles. It took me about half an hour to decide what I wanted because there were so many tempting choices!

Once you decide what you want, you tell the employees and they start preparing your "stuff." You get to tie your wick, pour the wax, stir in your scent and color chips, and that's about it!

The candles have to set for 10 hours before removing them from the molds, so you'll have to return the next day to pick up your masterpieces. I was very pleased with the results of my "moon" and "star" candles -- they now decorate my bathroom.

Prices are reasonable, comparable to buying a nice candle at Pottery Barn or somewhere like that, only yours will be much nicer!
