Hidden Gem Alert-The Whiffle Tree Candle Shop and Artisan's Marketplace
It's a Fall ritual for me to make a trip up to The Whiffle Tree Candle Shop in Billerica, MA. I try to time my visit when foliage is at it's peak as the property is surrounded by trees.
Nature lovers would enjoy this spot. There's a variety of trees, wildlife running around and a peaceful stillness. It's like stepping back to simpler times.
The leaves crunched beneath my feet as I toured the property on an exceptionally warm Fall day.
Foliage has been delayed by our warm temperatures in New England so I didn't see peak color on this weekend. It was still gorgeous.
I made a little video too which you can view on my Facebook page.
I think this is the candle making shop. Don't you love the way the leaves scatter and accumulate on the roof? The colors of all the buildings give a feeling of history.
The day itself couldn't have been prettier. I was so happy it didn't rain on the day I visited.
The Whiffle Tree is open all year round. Looks like they are preparing for a New England Winter.
Hmm, I have a very similar pair of vintage skis.
More rustic charm on the property.
The trees towered over the buildings, the covered bridge, and the Spring Water station.
I never tasted the spring water from here but I often see people filling their containers.
The covered bridge is a favorite spot for family photos. In fact, I saw a photo session at the Whiffle Tree when I visited.
My favorite candle scent is the New England Apple. I bought it in the smaller jelly jar size.
There are always so many choices of fragrances from Seaglass to North Woods. Something for everyone.
The shop is like a country store. You can buy pickles from the barrels.
And many flavors of candy. Love those jars!
Of course, Pumpkin Spice is the fragrance of the month.
This place is a photographer's delight!
Notice the bend in the trees. So cool
The candle shop has a chalet feel to it. I think I shall have to visit when the snow falls.
I took a few photos with my phone too. They always look more vibrant, not sure why.
This is quintessential New England. A covered bridge bathed in fallen leaves.
This little boy escaped from the photo shoot I was watching. I guess he would rather play.
A parting shot before I drove away with candles and fudge in tow. Until next time, Whiffle Tree.
