For many of us who are familiar with the Yankee Candle flagship store in South Deerfield, it may come as a surprise to know that it isn't Yankee Candle's only flagship. The other flagship is in Williamsburg, Virginia—a little factoid that underscores how effectively the candle company has been in finding truly historic locations (and established tourist destinations) for its major stores. Here in the company's Valley flagship, you'll find 400,000 candles in over 200 famous Yankee scents. But this isn't just a candle shop; it's more like a vast retail amusement park, where an entertaining world of New England charm and fairytale fantasy provides a unique background for a host of shopping and educational experiences, including hands-on, interactive candlemaking.
