When it comes to the warmth and coziness of autumn, I like to head over to Jones Farm and Country Store in Cornwall, New York to outfit my home. The store, part country gift shop and part small bakery, offers a wide variety of candles made by national and local manufacturers. Regular beeswax and soy candles in a variety of delicious scents (including pumpkin and apple pie) are among the offerings for sale. In addition to the popular jar candles, there are many tapers for sale, as well as some festive candle rings to surround your glass votive holders.
Merchandise constantly changes, with autumn and the holiday season bringing new candle scents. Prices are competitive with large national chains such as Yankee Candle and White Barn Candle Co., but shoppers leave with the feeling that they have supported a local business.
