I became enamored with The Candle Mercantile in Lake Geneva the first time I set foot inside their store, last year in the spring.

First of all, I LOVE CANDLES. Seriously. It’s an obsession. There’s nothing better than a hot bath with a book, a bath bomb, twinkle lights, and at least five candles flickering away on the bathroom counter, one of them heating a wax warmer.

Second, The Candle Mercantile DOES CANDLES RIGHT. It’s more than just a candle shop. Yes, you can buy an amazing soy candle right off the shelf. (I have one of their coffee-scented candles on my bathroom counter just now.)

But why would you do that, when you could blend your own scents, then enjoy a glass of wine while you and your friends wait for your candles to set up?

Like… seriously???

That’s why, when I first visited their shop, I immediately grabbed Liz and Leigh Ann’s business cards (the owners) and asked my assistants to reach out to them.

And now, I ask you (with giddy delight)… Why would you buy a candle off the shelf, when you could blend your own scents, sip a glass of wine with your besties, and enjoy a book reading with a bestselling local Wisconsin author?

To be frank, this could be the most perfect pairing of a book reading of my life. (Did I mention my candle obsession?)

But be warned: Space is limited, and reservations are required! So make sure you call The Candle Mercantile to save places for you and your friends.
