The Abandoned Mansion Candle


  • Notes:
    Cedar
    Quince
    Paperbacks


    SYNOPSISAimless twenty-somethings Calvin and Millie didn’t mean to drop off the face of the earth but when they stumbled onto an abandoned mansion while hiking in the Adirondacks, that’s just what they did. Lounging in the autumn light and lost among the stacks of paperbacks they decided to weather the winter in their found fortress. Spring brought hordes of wildlife, both indoors and out, but no sign of other humans (other than the one growing in Millie’s belly). It would be another four years before the burgeoning family would be forced out of their assumed home but they don’t plan to leave without putting up a fight.


    WHEN TO BURN:  Lose yourself in this candle’s dim, woody vapors. Then kick your boots off and make yourself at home. This is where you live now.

    Our candles are large 11oz soy blend with cotton wicks and a 55 hour burn time.
