Old Time Candle Factory

 {the Davisburg Candle Factory in Davisburg, Michigan}
Tucked away in the small town of Davisburg is a candlefactory with a whole lot of tradition. The Davisburg Candle Factory offers custom made, hand-decorated candles that have been made in the same factory the same way since 1960.  Tapers are dipped in a unique automated line that is made up of old roller skate wheels, bike chains, wheels and rims. This is my go to place when it comes to gifts. I always have some on hand for emergency purposes, and love to give them at Christmas. Or birthdays. Since the candles are each created by hand they all have a unique aspect to them.

  4. CUTE!!! This kind of reminds me of summer camp because we used to make candles like that and it was so fun!

    I really love those blue ones- they would spice up a monochromatic room.

    I love, love, love little places like this. It's so neat to find such whimsy in little shops.
