The Gift Box
The Gift Box, first and foremost, is an inviting shop of unique gift items, fashion jewelry, purses, accessories, candles, tea-related items, decor and curiosities. A mixture of styles ranging from Shabby Chic, to Romantic Victorian, to Fun and Sassy, to Elegant, to Country and Primative, to... well, there are so many styles... and they change quite often.... just know that there is something for every taste and perference.
New things are mixed in with the old, and, as is often the case, the joy comes from the exploration and the determination of which is which. Additionally, there are so many items... and they change so often... that every trip to the shop is filled with interesting finds and fresh discoveries. There is always something new (or old) arriving... and always something leaving with a happy customer who found just the right thing, for that gift, or for herself.
Needless to say, Candleberry Candles figure prominently -- as you enter, the smell of these wonderful candles made by the Candleberry Candle Company welcomes you to our shop-- the entire Candleberry line is here, ready to take home and enjoy... we are committed to carrying the ENTIRE Candleberry Line and to offer them at the best prices we can.
There are other candles here to.... (and you can expect them to be the best, because we have to carefully select other brands to offer so that they are of the same quality as our Candleberry line. Some of the brands of candles we offer at Woodford Wicks and GooseCreek Candle Company... both made right here in Kentucky, just like the Candleberry Candles.
