People who like to make their homes a little cozier with candles have a new destination in Alexandria this fall.
The Alexandria Candle Shop, a pop-up store inside Made in ALX in Old Town North, has opened. Made in ALX is a collective of over 45 makers based here in Alexandria. Nine of these manufacturers create candles.
All of the candles in the new pop-up are soy wax or beeswax candles, which are made from renewable natural resources. Some are wooden wick candles, others are cotton wick candles.
The nine manufacturers presenting their candles this year are: C&A Soy Candles, Calming Connections and Wellness, the Alexandria Honey Co., Potomac Candle Co., Isle & Wild Creations, ISO Candles, Smiles and Light, Bashford & Pitt and Hilary De Mayo.
C&A Soy Candle also runs several candle making classes in the Made in ALX workshop space.
The pop-up will be open through early January at Made in ALX, 533 Montgomery St. in Old Town North. Free parking is available at the retail garage on First Street between North Pitt and North St. Asaph streets.
Follow the store on Instagram at @alexandriacandleshop and visit AlexandriaCandleShop.com to sign up for classes. Made in ALX also offers national shipping, local delivery and in-store pickup.
Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
