Linda started her candle making ventures in 1997 with a little hot plate and a kit from a hobby shop. Today her shop features hundreds of aromatic hand-poured candles in various colors, sizes and shapes. In addition to her hand-made, heavily-fragranced candles, Linda has recently expanded her shop to include an extensive inventory of gift items from such companies as Vera Bradley, Crabtree & Evelyn, Archipelago, Baekgaard, Ricardo, Emily Ray, Brushfire Designs, Trollbeads, Switch Flops, leather bags by Latico, Melie Bianco, Tano, Hobo and Sondra Roberts, shoes by Nicole and Madeline.
Gene's specialty includes the new line of soy lotion candles and he shares the added benefits of these candles: "After burning your soy lotion candle, extinguish the flame and remove a small amount of warm oil with the tip of your finger and gently massage into your cuticles, hands, elbows and feet."
Linda’s shop features the pottery of two Mississippi artists, Mud Pie Pottery made by local Batesville artist, Wanda Burney, and The Good Earth Pottery, made by artist, Richie Watts, of Starkville.
The Candle & Gift Shoppe also offers bridal registry services.
