“People have a lot of reasons for buying them, but also the desire to get in on the holiday fun,” he says.
��We see people going to the mall for shopping, and it’s just a way to do that for a day or two.
“��And that’s not to mention the way they’re made.
The candles are handmade in America, and they’re handmade in the United States,” he adds.
�It’s a great way to celebrate a loved one and also get into the holiday spirit.
���Some people have even gone so far as to take a candle and put it in a bucket of water and spray it on the ground to make it float.
It’s just the joy of the holiday and the love that people feel about it,” Siegel says.
And it’s not just the U.S. where people are buying and selling antique candles.
An Australian company is selling them in India and China, and an Australian woman even made her own antique candle in her kitchen.
But candles are not the only way to pay for a holiday gift.
The holiday season has also seen an uptick in online purchases of gifts for children and pets.
And there are also some companies that sell candles in their stores.
Bacchanal in Melbourne, Australia, has been selling candles since the 1990s, but its founder, Sarah, is now turning her attention to an entirely different market: candles for adults.
“They’ve grown up with it.” “
The candles are a gift to them, to their parents and their grandparents,” she says.
“They’ve grown up with it.”
“It’s really exciting, but it’s also an opportunity for us to make money,” she adds.
Bacanaal has grown to about 10 employees, but they all have to work from home for the business.
Its founders say the candles have grown in popularity in recent years.
“We’ve had a lot more people come in for the candles and we’ve seen more people coming in for our traditional candles,” says Sarah.
That’s because the company is not just selling candles.
“It also sells our other traditional candles as well,” she explains.
There’s also a website where people can buy candles online.
One customer, for example, buys a full box of candles to put in a Christmas tree for a friend.
Another, Sarah explains, buys five candles to decorate a house for his grandchild.
In addition to candles, Bacanaal also sells other items, like decorative lamps, hand-crafted jewelry and decorative candles.
It also has a collection of Christmas-themed holiday lights.
This Christmas, Sarah and Jason will be buying a whole box of candle lights for their son, who is in elementary school.
Sarah says it’s about the holiday, and about the family, that keeps them coming back to Bacanaale’s stores.
“It makes us happy,” she said.
They also believe the sales make Bacanaalia financially sound.
For example, she says, her husband has paid about $20,000 for candles and candles accessories, and $5,000 to get them to their daughter, who has graduated from high school.
“We were able to put that money to use this year, because it’s the holidays that we celebrate, and we’re not spending the money on the Christmas stuff,” she added.
To get a sense of how much Bacanaales business is growing, Sarah compares it to other retailers.
Last year, Bacanas annual revenue was $3 million.
If you look at other retailers, like Walmart, Target and other big-box retailers, Bacanos sales have been lower, she notes.
So it’s hard to tell how the Christmas season will impact Bacanaals business, she added, but Bacanaas revenue is expected to grow over the coming years.
