I love the whole Pioneer Valley area as well. Check out the state park at Mt Sugarloaf just a short drive away

I wont lie i am strictly a Yankee Candle fan. (i also worked there 5 years in many different areas lol) I will tell you, though the kringle candles smell wonderful and look beautiful... about half way down they loose their scent and dont look as pretty. I have friends that went up and have all had the same problem. To each their own, obviously im not going to tell you not to buy them. Just want to give you the heads up because although they seem cheaper, you can print out the coupons for yankee, and fyi at the store as long as you have the amt, you can use up to 3 coupons!! No other promotions may work. So for example, if you buy 3 regular priced candles for 74.97, get a chapstick or a votive to bring it over 75 (before tax) and you can use 3 sets of 10 off 25. Bringing your total to the same price for 2. (Works on any items)

Thank you for the info about Kringle. I love, love, love Yankee Candle. We may not go to Kringle now. We love hanging at the Factory store and having lunch at Chandlers.

I've always wanted to visit Yankee Candle. It's the only candles I'll purchase. I also love their tarts. I feel that their scent is actually stronger and find it fills several rooms of my house at once.

My DH and I met while students at Umass and one of our first dates was at Chandlers

We went to Yankee Candle last year for the first time in about 10 years and was shocked about how big it has gotten. The place is HUGE now!

Hi Everyone:

Here is some BBQ Info:

There will be a BBQ, Silent Auction and Raffle from noon - 4:00 at the Eagles Club in Leominster. The Eagles is about 15 min from the theater and has fields and a hall so we are good Rain or Shine. Tickets for the BBQ will also be $10. As of now most of the food is being donated and we are getting monetary donations to offset the cost of the hall and any other expenses we have.
So far we have Patriots Tickets, Tom Hanks Autographed Merchandise, a Cars 2 Poster signed by the Podcast team and we are working on donations from Best Buy, Story Land and many others for the Auction & Raffles. If you have any leads please let me know and I will forward you the donation request letter.

Please take a moment to confirm is you will be coming to the BBQ in addition to the movie so we have a good idea of head count. The hall holds 300 so we have plenty of room to grow!!

Nikkibell, definitely check out their new items quicksense. They are absolutely amazing! If you want the place to smell nice immediately they are perfect. (Definitely helps with the stinky diapers let me tell ya!) Theyre also wicked cheap and theyre inbetween a tealight and votive size wise, but smell wise, stronger than the big jar candles, and last about 4 hours. Thats also why theyre cheaper, but if you have the 10 off 25$ coupon you can get 2 starter kits and 2 refill packs for 27.96 plus tax, with the 10 off, you can get them for about $18. each starter kit comes with 2 candles.
