Sorry for the late notice, but a friend just told me that she just returned from the Paddywax Factory Store Open House.
Located at 235 Dekalb Industrial Way (next to Wag-A-Lot), just east of the Decatur city limits, this once small start up’s candles can now be found in candle and specialty stores throughout the country. Luckily for Decatur residents, their factory also has an outlet store, where customers can purchase slightly “imperfect” candles for less than half the price as one’s found in the store.
So, if you’re looking for a holiday gift that’s truly local or just want a candle that doesn’t come in a massive 22oz jar, check out Paddwax (Open Mon-Fri 10a-5p and Sat 10a-4p). Or for even larger discounts check out their annual Holiday Open House today!
Not sure what the hours are this year, but last year it was 9a-5p.
