Candles by the Hundreds at Kringle Candle Company

 Do you love candles?

If you do, a dream-come-true trip for you would be a visit to Kringle Candle Company in Bernardston, Massachusetts.

It makes a fabulous day trip from Western Massachusetts and is less than two hours away.

The grounds of this fairly new company are beautiful. 

There are brick walkways, spanking new buildings that look somewhat vintage in style, white fences,  flowering plants in huge containers, many of them red, and, of course, candles.

There's a huge Christmas building with all things holiday, a chocolate shop and full service restaurant plus a place to buy sandwiches.

  You can even sit under red umbrellas set over tables and chairs. 

On a sunny, gorgeous day, this place rocks.

Kringle candles, even though displayed in colored containers, are all white, burn brightly and are highly fragrant.

There's another huge candle company in Massachusetts that natives know like the backs of their hands. It's Yankee. Their candles are lovely and fragrant, too.

Well, Kringle Candle Company's owner, Mick Kittredge III, is the son of  Mike Kittredge, II, the man who originally started Yankee candles, before that company was sold. Small world, eh?

Anyway, thought you'd enjoy seeing some photos of Kringle Candle Company! 

Even ol' Chris Kringle would be proud of this place! 

By the way, check out their terrific website by going here.

I love candles, but to choose my favorite fragrance would be hard...maybe freeshia or magnolia, or pumpkin spice. We lived in Massachusetts and I've never heard of Kringle. It's on my list the next time I'm there. XOXO

OMG, Susan! You live in the BEST state, don't you? TWO huge candle companies?! :)
I've never heard of Kringle, either. I find it kind of strange that they are all white! I cannot possibly choose my favorite aroma. There are many, and they depend on the season, too! Thanks for the beautiful photos!

Oh, yes! I like candles! My favorite scent, though I like the change of scent with the seasons, would probably be a pumpkin spice!

You are a wonderful ambassador for Massachusetts, Susan! Everytime I read your blog, I am filled with a longing to visit your state once again!

Have a great Wednesday!

That candle company is huge - we have nothing like that here. I'd love to go visit it.

Right now I'm burning Clean Cotton - Yankee. But I love MacIntosh Apple for the fall.

Enjoy your week!

That is a beautiful candle store... it would be hard to leave with out spending some money there. My favorite candles are the ones that smell like cookies and pies. :)

I love Yankee candles as the scent lasts so long . I had no idea there was a spin off company from the owners..very interesting. Lovely pictures too. I do not have a favorite though as they are all great.

New England has so many of these wonderful places. I can imagine the fragrances, the food and the fun.

You know I have an allergy problem - and I love candles - but would like them unscented.

They sure look pretty - are they as big as Yankee Candles - I don;t think I have seen any.

Looks like a wonderful day!
