Shop local for the sights and smells of the holiday season with Dandles Candles

SPOKANE, Wash. — Dandles Candles is a local candle business in Spokane that makes fresh, long-lasting soy candles by hand.

The owner, Dana Haynes, started the business years ago as a hobby. And now it’s a flourishing business.

The Dandles Candles Holiday Open House this month kicked off the sale of holiday-scented candles.

Theses include Christmas Fir, Cranberry Spice, Holiday Joy, Jack Frost and more.

You can shop online or at various retailers in Washington and Idaho.

Candle refills are also available in Spokane.

“It’s more important than ever to shop small,” said Haynes. “We know that the big box retailers give us those deals and we all like a bargain, but if you can, go into your favorite local store, buy at least one or two gifts there. Everybody’s hurting right now.”
