♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ Christmas Notes from Chantelle ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪

I am pleased to offer a product line that is both affordable and high in quality. My customers can choose from a wide selection of Jars, Votives or Wickless melts in over 90 scents….all within the $10-$25 price range.

The National Candle Association website mentions that candles are burned in 8 out of 10 US households. They are also highly appreciated when given as gifts for various occasions such as the holidays (76%), as a house warming gift (74%), a hostess/dinner party gift (66%), a thank you (61%) and as adult birthday gifts (58%).

Scented candles remain the most popular and affordable way to infuse your home with holiday ambiance. That’s why candles are taking the center stage in holiday decorating, gift giving and entertaining plans for 2009. They create an inviting home and bring back memories of years gone by.

My top product picks for the season would have to be our 16 or 26 oz. Gourmet Scented Jar Candles. Available in over 90 scents, they are certainly our “WOW” product because of the quality scent throw and clean way they burn. They have self-trimming wicks and liquefy evenly from top to bottom. They last hours longer than traditional wax varieties and smell absolutely fantastic!

Sales & Specials:

SNOW PLACE LIKE HOME: A comforting blend of warm spices combined with the sweet tart essence of cranberries makes this one a winner for those cozy fall and winter days.
