Happy October 1st!
We recently visited a little town near our area called Manistee and went into this store called Surroundings.
I had previously avoided going in there because the first word I saw was "Tobacco" in the window. I truly hate smoking and my mind stopped on that word and I went no further.
So I read the sign again and the first word on the description of the store was actually candles then gifts, so I decided to give it a chance.
(no compensation just my desire to share here)
|I copied this from their Facebook Page so I blurred the faces since I don't know the people in them, and no it's not the property brothers! LOL|
As it turns out it was a cute little store loaded with multiple brands of candles and gift items There is a humidor room as well as a smoking room in the back.
It's impressive to see all the cigars stacked up around this room almost like a wine cellar but that's as far as it goes with me. Cigars make me sick- always have.
So to get to where I'm going for this post..... I found this pair of candlestick tea light/votive converters. I really didn't know what to call them, but after searching the web that's what I've come up with!
They had a clearance price of $1.00 each- who could resist!
The little rubber gasket stabilizes them nicely in the candle holder and I loved that they have a hummingbird and flower design etched on them.
I found these adorable little pear shaped mini candles that fit in them nicely so I grabbed them up. Now I wish I had bought more, but that will be another trip!
I had seen these candlestick votive converters before but never gave them a 2nd thought. They are a nice way to still offer candlelight, but without the mess that a taper candle can cause.
These even smell like pears! I'm not going to burn them just yet. My candlesticks already had a built in cup holder to contain drippings but these didn't look bad set down in there.
Have you ever used these or saw them and wondered what they were for?
