Seven things I like about the Yankee Candle Flagship store in South Deerfield, MA

1. Always a good time spent with the family. No matter how many times we have visited, the girls love this place.

2. Miles of candles to sniff. Miles of candles and candle stuff to buy along with kitchen stuff, gifts, linens, candy

3. You can talk to Santa. Really! Santa works the off-season in the toy department. He always has time for a chat.

4. Walking through the Black Forest and Bavarian Village where it's Christmas time year round. I love all the Christmas ornaments.

5. The German Christmas music that plays in the background in the Bavarian Village.

6. Tossing pennies in the moat of the Bavarian castle to make a wish. The pennies are donated to charity.

7. The gargoyles figures outside the Bavarian castle. I was tempted to buy one for the garden, but had already spent my money on Christmas ornaments.

Got a favorite place you like to visit?


  1. I love to visit Forestville. Or any bookstore.

  2. Yep, I like the actual country of Germany! *grin* Can we go there when I visit?
