Would you like a refill?......

I'm not sure if I have ever mentioned that we here at Backyard Candle Co. do candle refills. All you have to do is bring us your favorite container (cleaned out of course) and we will fill it with your favorite scent for only .65 per ounce. This service certainly keeps us busy as once people get the idea, they are always on the lookout for something cute for us to pour a candle in. We have done everything from old crocks, to margarita glasses, to gravy boats. The possibilities are endless. We do have what we call "hodge podge" candles in our store to sell which are just candles that we have poured into vintage goodies. These sell so quickly that it is hard to keep them in stock.The glass containers are my favorite. We did something much like the photo above as a Christmas display and it was beautiful.
We have filled many a teacup!


Love this idea, how sweet is that?
I know if you are'nt a local, this service does'nt really do much for you, but I wanted to share it with you anyway. However, if you come across the most amazing container ever and know it would local super cute with a candle, just let me know, cause you can always send it to me and I would be happy to fill it for you!

You may have just added another thing to start hunting down and working on! I LOVE candles--despite my husbands fear that I'll burn the house down.
