Sometimes It's Just The Small Things...

I don't know if any of you guys ever shopped at the Candle Store called Illuminations? There was one at the Summit and one in the mall in ATL. These are my most favorite candles even though they were pretty $$ as candles go... I would always buy "Mulled Wine", "Nappa Valley Harvest", and "Cranberry Orange". Well early 2009 Illuminations was bought by Yankee Candle and phased out :( All the stores are shut down. You can see that at www.illuminations.com
What is really strange is why would Yankee buy them just to shut them down? To get rid of the competition? So weird and sad but anyways this story does have a happy ending!
While at TJMAXX heaven on earth, I discovered alot of Illuminations candles ! and to make it even more exciting they are about 1/4 of the original cost! So Juliel and I both have taken advantage of this fabulous discovery and maybe you will too!
I was SO happy last night to smell my fav candles again! Sometimes the smallest, most simple things can bring you the most pleasure!

There is a TJ Maxx right down the street from my office, I will have to go there and see if this location has them! I had seen these candles before but have never owned one, because as you said, $$$. I'm excited now to try them.
