We burned this several hours the other night and did have some slight tunneling. It's not horrible, but just never reached one side of the jar. I'll do a little wax maneuvering next time we burn it, and see if I can correct it.
I don't know actual prices of these candles because I only saw small ones in the store, but I did find something on the website suggesting a retail price of $4.99. That's pretty darn affordable! Yankee's 14 oz. candles are almost $25! And these are 18 oz.!
The store I originally saw this brand in was a local Pick N Save grocery store. I admit I didn't have high hopes for the strength of the scents in such a candle. Reading on the Old Williamsburgh website, I found that they are the primary supplier for Dollar-type stores, and also Michael's and JoAnn Fabrics. Heh, yeah, my expectations were pretty low while I waited for my package to arrive. Candles have always been very hit or miss for me . . . usually miss. But wow, I have been pleasantly surprised with these! I was showing these to my sister the other day and she asked if I would still buy these over bigger brand names. I think I would, yes. Maybe I'd eventually end up with a barely there weak scent but I'd know now that it's not a representation of the company as a whole.
Since they had sent me two of each scent my first thought had been to do my April giveaway with the doubles. Then I realized that shipping on these buggers would be quite pricey, and reconsidered. While my mom and sister were here on Easter Sunday, they each picked a candle to take home and try for themselves. That leaves one extra candle, and I've decided to go ahead and use it for the giveaway. (I will do a separate contest post.)
I would like to thank Old Williamsburgh Candle for sending me these wonderful candles. It has been so much fun trying them out and sharing them with others. And I will definitely be more open to trying their other candles as I come across them in local stores. Thank you, Old Williamsburgh!
Are YOU familiar with Old Williamsburgh candles? Would you give them a try if you came across them? I'm curious!
OH!! And perhaps the funniest thing of all was that the colors they sent are purple, yellow, and white . . .
