Date Night done right!

My husband and I attended a candle making class at West Clay and had the BEST time! Mo and Susie were kind, knowledgeable, and passionate about candle making as well as non-toxic products! The shop is full of adorable jewelry, gifts, and many other unique goodies! If you’re unable to attend a class, definitely be sure to stop in to treat yourself to some of the best smelling (and safest) candles around!

We LOVED the class. It fun, something different and new to do, and really just informative. The things I learned will also chaneg the way i not only buy, but even burn my candles at home! They were really hands on which was so helpful, and we seriously loved all of the scents and candle containers to choose from. Even better, you can shop after the experience when the store is normally closed! 10/10 recommend
