If everyone lit just one little candle...

This photo was taken before our major snow, which fortunately is nearly melted now. This man has all sorts of candles for sale, from beeswax ones and votive candle holders to place on a grave to colored paraffin candlesin the colors of the Serbian flag, plus purple and pink, from what I can see. I like the little candle couple in Serbian dress.

We have stands like this at art shows, but, OMG are they expensive. Maybe they buy them from him and ship them over.

I have a thing for candles of all kinds! I'd have fun here. Does he make them himself or do you think he's just a vendor?

I love the picture and I sure could have used a few of those last week when my power went out.

Such wonderful glimpses into your life! Keep them coming, please.

Another great candid capture. I too like the couple that's candles.

I like your title too!

Jacob, I'm fairly certain this fellow is just vendor, though there still are a couple of old-fashioned candle shops downtown. I'll try to get there.

Of course these have so much more appeal than "yankee candles" lol

I love candles ... especially if they have a soft gentle fragrance

If everyone would light a candle, perhaps your winter would go away?

There's something special about buying from individual vendors, I think that's why I dislike grocery shopping, it's so impersonal.

I'd definitely buy some of those beeswax candles!
