    Hi, not sure if I am posted in the right place, but is anyone going?

    Have a great time. We went a few years ago on a bus trip. The only thing I didn't like was that we were there for way to long. There is only so many times you can look at the same thing. Spending 2 days was way to much

    Our bus is heading up Thursday the 17th. I work for Yankee Candle (in PA) and we run a bus trip up to the LB event at the flagship store every year. TONS of fun! The flagship store just added some new rooms - housewares & home furnishings - can't wait to see them!

    I did an overnight trip there as well & agree it was overkill. You can see & do everything twice in a few hours - however I highly recommend stopping to eat a nice sit sown meal at Chandlers - absolutely wonderful food & atmosphere! There is also a great store across the street & down a little bit (it is walkable but not sure how safe to cross that major road) - I forget what it's called but it's like a nicer Ollie's - closeouts & seconds at great prices. I spent a long time in there & filled my truck with goodies! We stayed at a Marriott about 10 min. from Yankee, and right across from there was a nice shopping center with a TJ Maxx & Target - you could always go there if you have time to kill. Supposedly there's a great BBQ joint between that shopping center & Yankee as well.
