    Hiya

    I am trying to plan some shopping when I go to Florida ( apart from me usual spur of the moment shopping). So here I have a few questions if thats OK?

    Where is the best place to buy Yankee Candle items? I have recently started really getting into burning the christmas smells and fancy gettin some more, I am tending to use the tarts on the burner.

    On to toys is toys r us th best place for me to get bratz dolls for my nieces? the on at the florida mall?

    on to timberland boots, can you get the blue and pink childrens ones in the usa?

    Ok enough for now, Im getting really excited its 18 DAYS till we go!!!!

    There is a Yankee Candle shop at Pointe Orlando on International Drive. You will be spoilt for choice plus they have some lovely burners. I have to have at least of couple of visits to this shop while we are there. :)

    There is a great shop at Pointe Orlando as the previous poster said. I burn them all the time. I especially love the pink grapefruit, strawberry and island mango. Did you know that each month there is 25% off a chosen candle fragrance both in the Yankee shops here and in the States?
    Here is the American site. There is a great range.

    Ponte Orlando is at the south end of I-drive (the nicer end) - close to the Rosen Center hotel and the convention center.

    Guess it depends on where you are staying for how to get there etc?

    I always seem to spend a couple of hours at the YC shop at the Florida Mall - they are always very helpful in there.

    Agreed - we were served by a very nice man last month - a bit camp, but very nice indeed.

    sorry do not know about the dolls
